Social transformation for the “Bible Belt” of a former Soviet nation
Ministry in Ukraine
Due to the history of communism in the country, the prevailing mindset is still present in the population, especially the older citizens. There is a large battle for the hearts and minds of Ukrainians.
The recent political conflict has also produced a lot of grief and makes our ministry effort increasingly difficult.

Children's Ministry in Ukraine
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.
