Be Part of the Ministry Team with John Crowder from Moscow to Deep Siberia



Experience the Presence of the Trinity in a supernatural way and release tangible kingdom power in the nations as part of a Sons of Thunder mission trip! We have one trip currently open for applicants coming up November 2021. Our Russia Missions are always our favorite. On this trip you will be on the team helping equip local churches in the Gospel of grace, healing the sick and releasing the intoxicating, miracle-working glory. The team will minister at three events: with travel to Moscow and two other cities deep into Siberia. Our mission trips are literally life-changing experiences - great for getting activated in the hands-on power and revelatory message of the Gospel. Space is limited and early registration is recommended ... see all details below:

Covid Note:

As our first group mission since Covid 19, we expect this trip to fill quickly, and encourage folks to apply early. We also anticipate international flights to open by November. While all trip deposits are non-refundable, we do have one exception in this case: if flight restrictions are not lifted by September 1 (the date of your final payment), then we will return all deposits. There will also be no need to purchase any flights prior to Sept. 1, so your only commitment at this time is your $500 deposit.


Our application process is very simple. Just follow the steps below and you're on your way!

OneFor starters, you will place your DEPOSIT to hold your spot on the team.
Space will be limited for this trip, so be sure to register EARLY.
Cutoff deadline for deposits is July 15, 2021 or sooner if the team fills up.


Next, you will need to fill out our Mission Application. Please



Now, simply wait! We will email you to confirm your placement on the team. We will also send periodic information as it becomes available about the trip. This is a good time to begin fund-raising at your local church or through family and friends who may want to support your mission!


FourYour next and final payment amount is due by September 1, 2020. You can pay this now or later. Just don't miss the deadline! Your payment covers all hotels, ground transport, domestic flights within Russia and two meals a day - all but your international airline ticket, which you will buy separately. (This payment will also be refunded if Covid travel restrictions still remain in place by Sept. 1)


FiveThis is a "make your own way" trip, which means you will be responsible for purchasing your own round-trip airline ticket to Russia. We recommend saving up now and waiting to buy tickets in September (keep in mind many folks like to donate air miles to missionaries! So you may end up flying for free). We will be giving exact arrival and departure airports in Russia, with easy instructions to taxi back and forth from the airport to the hotel. The team will meet up at the hotel. We will email everything you need to know about this and answer any questions.

The payments you make to Sons of Thunder will cover nice hotels for your entire stay, all of your ground transportation, two domestic flights between cities within Russia, as well as two meals a day and other costs associated with supporting the mission. The costs do not include your flight to Russia and back.

When do I purchase a flight?

This is a "make your own way" trip, which means you will be responsible for purchasing your own airline ticket into Russia and back home.

This is the benefit of a "make your own way" trip as you can potentially save on flights. We recommend preparing, but not concerning yourself too much with actual flight purchase until September rolls around. We will send information about exact airports and arrival times well in advance, as well as meet-up information for when you arrive.
