We are always thankful for new co-workers in our Learning Centres.

In October 2020, Yuri Iritsa was appointed as the new Russia Learning Centre Administrator. He has been serving in the Church of the Nazarene in various ministries. From 2010 to 2012 he was a leader in rehabilitation ministry, working with people suffering from drug addiction. Later in 2012, he became the senior pastor of the “In the Light” Nazarene Church in Sevastopol where he continues to lead to this day. Yuri is also a successful entrepreneur, social educator, and a practical educational psychologist. He is a founder of the School of Modular Education and a director of the Centre for Brain Development that has several filial branches in Russia. Yuri always has been passionate about education. Having studied at EuNC in the DCM programme, he is now looking forward to helping and motivating students in the Russia LC to devote their lives to successful completion of their studies and becoming better equipped disciples of Jesus Christ.
