February-March 2019

Our strategic priority is to equip the national Church with the training and tools where needed. We develop training courses, seminars, media, printed and online resources, etc. to meet the most pressing challenges the Body of Christ has to face in the post-communist countries. Yet, over the last two months our resources were in demand more often than ever before.

 Due to the aggressive atheistic propaganda that lasted for several generations, the relationship between the Church and society was difficult but straightforward – complete isolation. That solidified into a tradition, so much so that even two decades after the nation’s Exodus from the Egypt of communism the status quo was never seriously questioned. However, the current political and military crises in Ukraine are forcing the Church to revisit its prophetic role in distinguishing justice from lawlessness. Given the upcoming presidential elections in Ukraine, increasingly the Christians ask: what is our role in the political processes we are involved in?

 Of the resources that we develop, two topics are in highest demand now – Practical Christian Ethics (making well-grounded decisions in searching for God’s will) and Bible and Politics (the role of Christians in the development of civil society).

Fool’s Golden Rule seminar Lutsk

 As a result of decline in religious freedom across the former Soviet Union – especially in the restricted areas and occupied territories – we focus strategically on media and Internet. Our goal is to produce an online video version of every course and every seminar we provide. We are receiving excited feedback on the online video courses we created focusing on Crosscultural Evangelism and The Biblical View of Civil Society. That encourages us to continue in that direction with great enthusiasm. Whatever happens to us, the country or the society, the resources uploaded to the Internet and downloaded by many users will continue to work for the benefit of the Kingdom. Incredibly, our main website was accessed from 79 countries last year only! Praised be the Lord for the gift of technologies that allow to spread, deliver, access and proclaim the truth effectively! The message of the Lord should be broadcast widely according to His commandment to proclaim from the roofs what is whispered in ears!

 On behalf of the Joint School of Christian Apologetics, we arranged two Practical Christian Ethics courses in Kiev and in Kherson back to back (see the pictures attached) and produced its video version accessible online to everyone. In addition, we made the video versions of the seminars “Fool’s Golden Rule” focusing on how the Biblical ethics principles is distorted by the health and wealth gospel, “Live by the Spirit” on the proper motivation of Christian life, “Christian at the Crossroads” on the choices we face daily, and “Laying the Foundations” on how to be properly rooted in the faith. All of these are available online now . Please join our prayers for those who will use them in line with the approach set forth in 2 Timothy 2:2. May the Lord be praised!

 The Apologetics course taught at the Ukrainian Evangelical Seminary was another big event (see the pictures attached). During that event we recorded the videos for several more online seminars – “The Biblical Strategy of Evangelism,” “The Biblical Principles of Christian Leadership,” “Science and the Bible,” “Informal Logical Mistakes in Apologetics and Evangelism.” All of them are in post-production now. Please pray with us about these projects.

 The “Science and the Bible” course was also a part of the Christian Worldview School – the new project started in partnership with the Kyiv-based team of “Youth With A Mission” (see the picture attached). Young missionaries from Moldova, Poland, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and United States attend this intensive training program. We are going to provide several more courses there. Please keep them in your prayers.

Shaping the worldview of schoolchildren - Dubno

 In the town of Dubno, we were invited to offer a seminar for school teachers and the regional department of education officials on the role of science and the Bible in shaping the worldview of schoolchildren (see the pictures attached). This is the first occasion where the church has some real influence on the public education. Please pray with us for spreading this influence all around!

 Yet, a discussion topic stirring the greatest interest proved to be “Bible and Politics”. We organized a big conference on it in Lutsk, which was even attended by the mayor and members of the local Councils from several towns. We also provided seminars in Dubno and Kherson, interviews at Trans World Radio, and held a round table at UES (see the pictures attached). The upcoming presidential elections will test the civil society’s maturity – will it turn to the solid biblical foundations, or decide to turn back to “Egypt”? The proponents of the totalitarian past are interested only in one its outcome – the chaos that will make more people turn back to the “stability” of slavery (Numbers 11:5). But we know: whatever the outcome, the Lord is on His throne and we did not elect Him, but He elected us! May He be praised in everything we do!
