Ilya & Jessica 



Ilya and Jessica Batrakov served as Global workers in Novokuznetsk, Siberia under the leadership of Jessica's parents, Ilya and Janet Bantseev (founders and senior pastor of My Church).

At a young age, they both sensed the call into full time ministry. Ilya served as the youth leader in My Church downtown campus; while Jessica served as the media coordinator for the church while leading youth worship for the downtown campus. 

Ilya and Jessica Batrakov's vision is to reach this generation of young Russian-speaking people, to see them saved and inspired to fulfill God's call on their lives. One of the greatest needs in the eastern part of the world is that thousands of young people have never heard the phrase "God loves you."  


There are three main ways that you can help any of our supported missionaries:

1. Prayer Support

Being on the missions field anywhere in the world can, at times, be very daunting and difficult. To support these missionaries please remember them in your everyday prayers

2. Personal Letters

No matter where these missionaries find themselves, receiving a word of encouragement or a message letting them know they are remembered and thought of can go a very long way! If you’re wanting to send a letter or a message to any of our supported missionaries please send us an email!

3. Financial Support

Contribute to our ministry through Family Christian Centre's online giving!
