As you read this, our VP of Curriculum and Training is on his way to Ukraine to kick off a new location for our Foundations School in Lviv, Ukraine. He will get to personally meet the many pastors and leaders there who are hungry to receive training – not for the sake of knowledge, but for the sake of the lost and hurting around them.
Ukraine has been a political football since the Russian Revolution of 1917. From revolutions to civil war to the recent seizure of Crimea — the people and pastors of the Ukraine have endured many hardships. And that is one of the reasons we are there. We want to provide Christian leaders with the resources they need to lead their churches and change their communities.
Let me introduce you to Igor Grishajev. He is our director in Eastern Europe. And he has a vision to see Ukraine changed with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And he’s getting it done. In fact, right now we are making plans to invite leaders from other parts of Eastern Europe to receive our training. We are excited to see that there is so much demand for the leadership development we are providing.
Thank you for supporting Global Action! We are on the move and working to change the world.
