Empowering the post-Communist generation with Biblical values
Ministry in Belarus
Since the Soviet era, almost 80% of industry remains in state hands, with significant renationalization since 2005. Belarus has a strong industrial and agricultural base and it is heavily dependent on trade with its closest ally, Russia. The Church is growing in the context of persecution and state hostility, and often believers must meet in difficult circumstances.

Children's Ministry in Belarus
Children's Clubs are a bridge for churches to reach out to families. When children’s lives are changed, parents become curious. Children’s Ministry Workers build trust with parents as they show love to their children and provide a healthy, structured program for them.
The church planters’ only limitation in reaching out to the thousands of children waiting to join the exciting Children's Clubs is the resources available.
The Children’s Club consists of a five day module, in which the church planters strive to develop relationships with the children. This includes the following features.
Many of the children continue to attend Sunday School classes offered by the church planters. Seeing the change in their children, many parents begin attending church services and accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
One child can change a family, a community and a nation.
