Concerning the relationship of CCCPM and George Bryson to Calvary of Costa Mesa, the Calvary Chapel movement as a whole and Chuck Smith in particular.
George Bryson, the director and founder of CCCPM, shares the theological-doctrinal views and ministry vision of Chuck Smith and the Calvary Chapel movement as a whole.
George came to Christ through the ministry of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa back in 1968 and has been in ministry agreement with pastor Chuck and the greater Calvary Chapel movement ever since.
More recently (1991), George was called by God (and encouraged by Chuck) to start and lead a ministry established to help Calvary Chapel pastors (mostly in America) start and sustain Calvary Chapel churches (mostly) in Russia, the former Soviet Union and other areas of the world as the Lord may guide and provide.
Thus George has worked in cooperation and partnership with Calvary Chapel pastors and churches in America to help start and sustain Calvary Chapel churches in Russia and elsewhere. The Russian Calvary Chapel churches are led, fed, and generally cared for by Calvary Chapel senior pastors in Russia (Russian and non-Russian alike). Because the churches in Russia may be financially dependent upon one or more churches in America, the mission pastor will naturally (especially in the earliest days of the church plant) have some corresponding reporting accountability to the supporting pastor. This reporting accountability to a sending church only lasts as long as the mission church is financially dependent upon the supporting church. In addition to (and in relationship to) the ministry of CCCPM in Russia, George has started and is leading CCBC Moscow, as an extension of CCBC Murrieta. In addition to (and in relationship to) the ministry of CCCPM in Russia, George has started and is leading a long-term internship program in Moscow designed to help prepare and equip foreign missionaries and national ministers for long-term ministry in Russia.
Pastor Ray and his wife have ..., 5 Jan 2009 [cached]
Pastor Ray and his wife have been working with George Bryson in Russia since 1993. After assisting as the pastor of Calvary Chapel of Solkol in Moscow, they planted their first Calvary Chapel in the Far East of Russia in a big city called Kharvarosk. After eight years they turned the church over to a national who is the pastor to this day.
They then returned to Western Russia with the intension of starting a new church. When pastor Wayne Taylor and Pastor George Bryson came with a team from Calvary Fellowship of Seattle and the national ministry team (Russians and Americans) working with Calvary Chapel Church Planting Mission, through means of nightly outreach Christian Rock Concerts, Calvary Chapel of Tombov was born.

The following article focuses on George Bryson, long-term editor of We Alaskans. It is based on an interview with Bryson, held during the summer of 1999.
George Bryson
Alaska is a great place to be a writer, says George Bryson, editor of We Alaskans, the magazine for the Anchorage Daily News.
For the past 10 years, Bryson has tended this fire by encouraging writers from all over the state to come and tell their stories. Bryson is proud of the fact that people from all walks of life, with different points of view have a venue in We Alaskans.
"I love to read stories," Bryson says, "I want to read people's most important stories, the ones that are closest to the heart. I want them to tell the stories that really matter."
In his role as editor of We Alaskans and as an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Creative Writing and Literary Arts at the University of Alaska Anchorage, Bryson teaches new writers how to do this. He says one of the greatest rewards of teaching is to watch someone discovering the power of their stories and of their writing voice.
"It is especially fun to see someone who is trying this for the first time," he says, "someone who doesn't really think of himself as a writer, but finds out he is good at it. I have seen how life-changing that can be."
That is one of the reasons he is so committed to the Anchorage Daily News' annual Creative Writing Contest, a popular statewide contest which the ADN co-sponsors with UAA's Department of Creative Writing and Literary Arts.
"We received about 2,500 entries last year, so it is a huge effort," says Bryson. "It takes about 50 judges from around the state, and I put as much work into this one issue (the issue in which the winning stories are published) as I would four regular issues. But it is worth the effort, he believes, because it is a way to "encourage writers, especially young people, to try and write as well as they can."
Winning even an honorable mention will often encourage people to keep writing, to keep developing their voices. "It can be such a boost for them," Bryson says.
And there is nothing to compare with the experience of calling people to tell them they have won, he says.

It has been fun to be back in Russia, and a real blessing to get to travel and visit the churches with George for the pastor's meetings! We arrived back Friday, after visiting churches and Pastors in four cities in four days! Here's a brief outline of what we saw and heard:
Sunday: George arrived from the States, and we went straight from the airport via train to Moscow, where we caught the express to Kaluga. Pastor Dima and his wife, Nadia just had their third little baby boy. George shared a message about God's 'exceeding great and precious promises' from 2 Peter 1, and they had the baby dedication too. It was awesome to see all my friends at the church from the times we've spent in outreach to the city. Yura, who has served as a translator for us during the outreaches, has been going through some health issues lately, but seems to be doing a lot better, praise the Lord! At first they were worried that he might have developed MS, but he says that the doctors don't really know what his problem is, (this all stems from his car accident a couple of years ago). So please pray for him to be completely healed! He is in his last year of University, and coming up to his finals now.
Monday: After spending the night at Pastor Dima and Nadia's house we took the early train back to Moscow where George met with the pastors of the Moscow Calvary Chapels, and Pastor Ray Curran from Tambov.
George decided that instead of holding a May Pastor's conference here at the dorm this year, it would be better to travel to the Pastors to discuss things happening in the churches, and plans for long term church planting.
George is hoping to start a program to bring young men from the States to come to Moscow for a year-long Pastoral internship where they would have intense language training, discipleship training and preparation to go into a Russian city and start a new Calvary Chapel. He's also working with those already in churches to raise up young Russians to travel and do the same thing.
Wednesday: George and I arrived in Perm, where it was actively snowing!
After the service George met with Peter and other leadership for a meeting, and I went back to Tanya's house. On the way Barb saw a lady standing near the grocery store, who had a little boy in one hand and a sleeping toddler over her other shoulder - she was crying. Sasha, one of the young men from the church asked her what her trouble was, and she shared that she was in the city, away from her home, and her husband had left her, and she had no money to make it back to her house. Her children were well dressed and cared for against the cold, but Sasha and Barbara bought them some hot dinner from the grocery store, and brought them to the bus station with some money to get home.
Friday: We had a staff meeting, where George outlined his vision for the next year of outreach and ministry - the launching of the Pastoral Internship program, and the sending out of more people to plant churches in Russia. Russia is still open to the Gospel - to evangelization and church planting - foreigners are still welcome, and it's legal to reach out to the Russian people, of whom the majority still claim atheism or are nominal Christians. There are tons of open opportunities, and it's encouraging to see young men like Max, from Tambov, who is moving to Tver on May 15th to restart the church there. He's had a relationship with the church there for a long time, and the small group of believers there is excited to have him come be his pastor, and start to hold services again.
I just got home today from a side trip with George, the Director of CCCPM, who was preaching at the Calvary Chapel in the city of Nizhny Novgorod. Tyler, one of the interns here, George and I took an overnight train south where we met with the believers at the church, some of whom had come to serve with us as translators on out first trip to the orphanages this summer. It was great to see them again, fellowship with their congregation, and pray with them as they send out Sonia (who translated for us) and her older sister Dasha, who are heading to Austria to do an internship at the Calvary Chapel Bible College there.
George Bryson, who has worked alongside Sorrow Underfoot as an Oceanside-based administrator with Calvary Chapel Church, said that the band members' efforts are beyond their years.
"I couldn't be happier to partner with them," Bryson said. "They have just given themselves to reach out to Russians in general, and to these children in the orphanages, in particular. Even though I haven't known them that long, we're pretty tight now, because we've spent a lot of time together."
As for the musical aspect of the band's endeavors, Bryson said rock 'n' roll music is an especially effective way to connect with Russian teenagers.
"There's no way you're going to reach young people without playing music that somebody my age wouldn't normally listen to. The young people love it," said Bryson, who is 60 years old and has been working in Russia for 20 years.
"The kids love their music ---- everywhere they go, they have a following," he added.
