Vyacheslav Tsvirinko

Vyacheslav Tsvirinko holds a PhD from the University of Wales and currently teaches at Divitia Gratiae University, Chisinau, Moldova, where he trains a new generation of Christian leaders. Persecution by the Soviet government led Dr Tsvirinko to immigrate to the USA with his wife Nina and their six sons in 1990 until 2016 when they felt called by God to move to Moldova as missionaries. In the USA, Dr Tsvirinko served as senior pastor of a Russian-speaking church and later, as President of the Pacific Coast Slavic Baptist Association. He also worked at Fresno Pacific University, California, in admissions as well as serving as a regional campus director.
