Chaplain Krutogolov graduated in 2006 from the Biblical Theological Seminary. As a former prisoner himself, he understands prisoners' needs and knows how to bring the Gospel to them. He has big plans to build a halfway house to help former prisoners make a successful transition to civilian life. The halfway house is in what is known as the Leningrad Region, on the outskirts of St. Petersburg, Russia. For further information or to get more involved, you can email Chaplain Krutogolov at
