Mr. Kurt A

Kurt Bringerud was born in Sweden on July 31, 1957 and spent the first 8 years of his life in Japan. The son of missionaries, Kurt has 3 siblings: Two older sisters and a younger brother. Kurt attended Indiana University and graduated with a degree in history. Kurt then entered North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago where he prepared for a career in missions. While in seminary, Kurt married his college sweetheart. Although they were later divorced, they have 1 adult daughter, Lydia. After 2 years of seminary, Kurt moved to Indianapolis to join a parish belonging to the Evangelical Orthodox Church movement. In 2002 this parish officially joined the Orthodox Church in America and took on the name: St. John the Forerunner. Kurt serves the St. John parish as a reader, youth director and church school teacher and is a member of the parish council. Kurt has taught Japanese for various public school corporations throughout central Indiana for 22 years. During the summer of 2010, following his involvement in a Project Mexico trip with a team from central Indiana, Kurt once again felt God's call to the international mission field, a calling he is resuming after a nearly 30 year hiatus.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
