Missionaries in Russia

Jim and Laura Hutchinson

The Jim Hutchinson family consists of Jim and Laura and their three daughters (Alaina, Katie, and Emily).

Jim was saved at the age of 18 and Laura at the age of 7.  As young adults they met at church and were married in 1992.

Brother Hutchinson surrendered to preach while on a mission trip to Mexico in 1991. In 1996, during a mission conference, they surrendered to be full-time missionaries in Russia.  Jim completed his schooling and they served a three-year internship at Thomas Road Baptist Church, in Phoenix, Arizona. During their internship, Laura served as ladies’ ministry director and nursery coordinator. 

Jim and Laura were approved as BBFI missionaries in May 2001.  Following two years of deputation, they arrived in Moscow, Russia on May 3, 2003. 

The Hutchinsons spent their first term on the field engaged in intensive language study, pastoring Grace Baptist Church in Moscow, assisting another missionary in Moscow and working with other Baptist missionaries to compile Bible college curriculum that will be used throughout Russia. They are now serving the Lord in Moscow on their second term.

Their vision includes continuing to pastor the Grace Baptist Church in Moscow (with an emphasis on prayer and evangelism) as well as to see the Bible college curriculum finalized and implemented in the local church in Moscow and in other cities across Russia.  Their desire is to train nationals to be more effective in the local church and to assist those who have the desire to engage in church-planting throughout Russia.

The Hutchinson's sending church is the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Phoenix, Arizona. Their mission board is Baptist Bible Fellowship International.

Thank you for finding our wesbite, I pray that you will join us this week and come to a full understanding why we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, - and why we enjoy to proclaim His love to all... We want to take this opportunity to offer a wonderful Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers out there... I am truly blessed to hear and see Godly women that want to raise their family with Biblical ethics. Praise the Lord for faithful Mothers: You are your children's first role model in this world, your children look up to you; other women and men see your dedication to your families, they see you making sacrifices. I pray your saying is like unto Joshua... "but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24:15.


I pray that you will take some time to look around our pages: where you’ll find information about our church, our faith, and see that our God ministers to us through His Holy Word, the King James Bible.


We understand that trying to find a new church can be daunting and sometimes even down-right intimidating, but we invite you to come and experience our home church. We’re a friendly, inviting group and we’re always excited to have Visitors attend services… Will you please be our next visitor and join us this Sunday or Thursday? Services start Sunday morning - 11am and Sunday Evening - 6pm. Our Prayer Meeting starts at 7pm - Thursday nights. Please join us for our next service to find out personally why we trust and believe in God and in the promises He gave to us in His Book, the Holy Bible.


You can listen to many past messages by just clicking on this link - you will be connected to many great messages, lessons, and preaching on a wide variety of topics by our Pastor Carter - please click to see what messages we have recorded that may help you in your life -or- to gain a better understanding of God’s Will.


This last Sunday morning, Pastor Carter preached a message to the Mothers - entitled "A Loving Mother and Her Loving Child" using John 19:25 as the verse for furtherance of this message.
We can see that Mary (the mother of Jesus) is a loving mother, from pregnancy to crucifixion, Mary was submissive to God and adhered to the Law and Scriptures, Mary subjected herself to God and followed God's will in her life. Using Jesus' first miracle in John 2:1-5 Mary tells the servants to follow the instructions of Jesus. Mary wanted the people to give glory unto Jesus - her heart was right. In Luke 2:41-48 we see that Jesus, at the age of twelve years. Mary and Joseph were walking back to Nazareth, but Jesus was not amongst them, so they returned and found Jesus asking questions and answering questions from Doctors of religion, and they were astonished a his understanding... Jesus tells Mary "wist ye not that I must be about my Father's busniess?" Jesus was not being rude to Mary, Matthew 12:46-47 God's work needs to be done first, then family matters - in verse 48. Mary was there, when Jesus was whipped, beaten, and crucified - in Jesus' darkest hours, Mary was present, when Jesus was in his deepest need, - to let Jesus know that she loved Him.
Mothers you set the example you children need!
Mary and Jesus are the perfect eample of a loving, caring family. How can you be this way?
1. Love the Lord and submit to His will.
2. Instruct your children in Biblical fashion.
3. Minister to their needs, lovingly rebuke your children when they need that and encourage them to follow the Lord. Spend time with your family, stand by them for support.
Love your family!

For the evening service, Pastor Carter taught about Jesus as a loving Son
Jesus the perfect Son! He submitted Himself to his mother, Mary. Again in Luke 2:41-48, when Jesus stayed behind to question the doctors and when Mary came back to get him, Jesus stated that He must be do His Father's business... but Jesus returned with Mary and Joseph back to Nazereth.

Children, how can you be a better child to your parents?
1. Submit to your parents - this is a commandment of the Law.
2. Jesus loved his Mother, and taught her spiritually - make sure that your parents are taught the proper Scriptures.
3. Jesus, even on the Cross, arranged for someone (John) to take care of his mother (when He passed away on the Cross). Help your parent, love them, seek out spiritual leaders for them to adhere to...


We continually trust our Heavenly Father to build this church for His glory! It is our heart's desire to see people being saved in Victoria and the surrounding area and for God to bring other believers our way. Please pray with us concerning this desire. Thanks again for your prayers for this ministry. Your prayers are very much appreciated. We also count it a privilege to pray for the salvation of souls and the growth of saints in your church. Thank the Lord that "...we are labourers together with God..."  1 Corinthians 3:9.

We will continue to update you...
...as God dispenses His blessings upon us.
