About Team

About Western Ukrainian Team

In early 2022, the world watched as Russia invaded Ukraine, but that was just the most recent incident of a conflict that has plagued Ukraine for decades. The people of Ukraine are proud of their nation and willing to fight and sacrifice for their independence. But Ukrainians have a more significant need than freedom from political oppression; they need a Savior who can rescue them from the chains of sin and an eternity separated from their creator.

Our team works with Ukrainian believers to facilitate evangelism and church planting. We have undertaken three primary ministries: humanitarian aid, leadership development, and theological education. Through humanitarian aid ministry, we care for the people God has sent us to serve and introduce them to a loving Father who cares for them. In our leadership development work, we hope to raise up strong leaders among local churches who will teach and train their congregations to evangelize their neighborhoods and cities. In addition, we support a seminary to ensure sound theology is taught for generations to come.

Your support for our ministry will reach beyond the borders of a war-torn country to the deepest needs of people who are desperate for the peace of God. Partner with us to more widely usher in God’s kingdom across western Ukraine.
