The Russian Old Believer Community formed together when a group of everyday people realized that their community was missing something. We recognized that even though our people had a strong sense of faith and church there was no sense of unity in the community. We were a people without a foundation. So, we came together to create an organization passionate about serving the local community with programs that were in desperate need.
In just the first six months that the ROBC was founded, we raised over $420,000, bought a school that had fallen into disrepair, and began to remodel that building to prepare for students in the fall. This property will be the cornerstone of the community foundation. It will be the base of operations for our youth group and mentorship program as well as a private school and a community center.
The opportunities with this building are as limitless as our dreams for how we can better serve our society and the people in need.
