We are a married couple serving in L’viv, Ukraine, who are dedicated to the spread of the Gospel. We love what we do, and we want to share that with you, allowing you to join us in prayer and other ways.
Our vision is to strengthen the local Ukrainian church and reach those outside of church with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Why is this so important?
Less than 2% of Ukraine is protestant. Ukrainians, especially youth, are starting to loose hope in many things, including the church. Many young people and millenials see it simply as a place of rules and dead religion.
The good news, however, is that people are searching for answers, particularly millennials. To us, though, these are far from statistics. They are our neighbors, our friends, and the people that we talk with in our everyday lives.
What must be done?
This is a spiritual epidemic. Ukrainians need local Christians and churches to take a Christ-centered outlook and bring them the Gospel in the everyday. They’ve had enough of “religion” from the churches and cathedrals that they were dragged to as children.
What is God already doing?
We see God at work in the local church. Many churches here are becoming more and more Christ-centered, making the Gospel itself the key issue above all. This is, little by little, leading to revival. In our church, God’s Love L’viv, things are getting more and more shaken up. In our ministry, Katya with the young women, and David with the leadership team, God has given us a unique opportunity to be a catalyst for change.
We also see God at work in cutting-edge media ministry. Online video is having more and more of an impact, as it is currently the most powerful medium of communication of this generation. We are taking part in that, creating evangelistic shortfilms based on different aspects of Ukrainian culture.
