Stathis and Ruth Yfantidis

Stathis is pastoring the Third Evangelical Church in Athens.

Stathis and Ruth started serving in the church in central Athens (the Neos Kosmos neighbourhood) since their marriage in October 2018.

Stathis had the privilege to grow up in a Christian household. His parents planted the Greek Evangelical Church of Larissa and inspired him to always pursue God's will no matter the circumstances. Stathis did his theological studies in the Greek Bible College (B.Th), in the Tyndale Theological Seminary in Holland (M.Th), and also completed EMF's School of Biblical Studies in 2018. He served as a youth pastor for three years in his hometown (Larissa) and as an assistant pastor for a year, before taking on the role of pastor of the Third Evangelical Church in Athens in 2018.

Ruth also had the privilege to grow up in a Christian household. He father was an elder in the church she grew up in, and had many positive influences by her family, and the whole church family. Ruth is a certified nurse (University of Thessaly, BScN) with a Master's degree in Health & Social Care Management (University of West Attica, MSc). She is serving as an International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) councillor, while also leading in the worship in the church.
