Our History

Answer in Jesus Ministries was founded in 1996 with the vision of bringing hope and the light of the gospel to the world. The mission of the ministry is to conduct evangelistic campaigns, train spiritual leaders, and provide charitable assistance to those in need.

The founders of the ministry, Vasily and Olga Skorykh, emigrated to the United States as refugees from the USSR in 1995. Immediately after their arrival, they founded the Mission “Answer in Jesus Ministries”. Just 1.5 years later, they returned to Russia as missionaries with their young children and founded 7 churches in the Urals.


Over the years, the ministry has touched hundreds of thousands of lives through various events in countries such as the United States, Russia, Mexico, Cuba, Kyrgyzstan, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Myanmar. The mission has continued to grow and spread the gospel, reaching new communities and touching the lives of people all over the world.

Today, Vasily and Olga Skorykh, along with their 6 children, live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and continue to lead Answer in Jesus Ministries. Vasily serves as the President of the Mission and as the pastor of the church “Answer in Jesus”. The ministry remains committed to its vision and mission, and is dedicated to bringing hope and the light of the gospel to all those in need.

What We Believe
At Answer in Jesus Church, we believe in the central teachings of the Christian faith and hold to a biblical worldview. Some of our core beliefs include:
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

  • 2 Timothy 3:15-17
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:13
  • 2 Peter 1:21
These are just a few of the core beliefs that guide our church and inform our understanding of the Christian faith. We invite you to join us as we explore these teachings and grow in our relationship with God.
