Religion takes us to a place, but relationship brings us to a person. As we encountered Jesus in our own lives and started following Him, He lead us to Ukraine. As a nation with a longstanding Christian history, one stumbles upon golden-domed churches at every corner. Yet many people arrive at a place without encountering the person. So we dedicated our lives to teaching the Word of God and training the next generation of Bible teachers in Ukraine, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia.
Our life and ministry changed drastically as Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24th, 2022. The love for God that once brought us to this nation led us to stay in this nation, even as bombs were falling around us in the capital Kyiv. We are committed to serving the Lord and reconciling people back to Him in season and out of season. Overnight our ministry changed from Bible teaching in a classroom to food distributions and evacuations in the midst of a war zone.
We are committed to being an answer to Ukraine’s immediate needs in this time of war, but even more to rebuilding this nation spiritually. Follow our journey into an unknown future, looking up to a known God.
