Rector of the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the village of Ivanovka, Belgorod region, Father Maxim Pastukhov took the third place in the bodybuilding tournament held in Stary Oskol. Priest Maxim Pastukhov was engaged in sports from his youth and was not going to tie with him even when he decided to devote his life to worship. The Holy Father cares about the physical preparation of his young parishioners. In the village he opened a sports Orthodox club named after St. Joasaph of Belgorod. Maxim Postukhov says that now about 20 people are engaged in the hall, while classes here are the same as in ordinary gyms. Sometimes a clergyman talks about faith with his wards, leads them on hikes, and recently the guys began to participate in various competitions.
