Miami Valley Episcopal Russian Network

MVERN’s Mission is to foster a partnership between St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Sablino, Russia, and the MVERN churches through cultural exchanges of  youth, adult laypersons, and clergy, and through financial and other forms of support.









MVERN Photos - Russian Youth Trips to Ohio





29 Russian youth have journeyed from Sablino to Ohio on six separate trips.  The Russian youth stay in the homes of Episcopal and Orthodox teens and immerse themselves in their host families' lives, including tasks around the house, sightseeing, swimming, shopping, picnics and worship services.  These immersion trips dispel negative stereotypes about the United States, and in addition Fr. Nikolai has said that these exchanges reinforce the values that he seeks to instill in his youth.
