Ministerial leader training for new church planting

According to statistics a large number of people in Ukraine are not covered and there is a great need for new churches, especially in the eastern and central parts of Ukraine.

The Assemblies of God and the Union of Christians of Evangelical Faith have a vision of opening in Ukraine 400 churches in 5 years. The first need is the training of ministers. The Evangel Theological Seminary (ETS) is in partnership for the implementation of this plan as a basis for minister training and improvement.

Over the last ten years more people have come to God than over the previous 100 years. We live in the last time and the news about events happening all over the world confirms this. Therefore we must work more and more intensively for the opening of new churches and leader training.

In spring 2017 at the ETS a program on new church planting has been opened for the students of the missionary Ark school. The students are learning the main basis – Christian ethics and church doctrines, how to build properly the relationships with people and communicate important truths, to talk about the foundation of faith and how to evangelize.

The studying is important for every student for a number of reasons, but even now they are planning to open new churches in various parts of Ukraine.


Ruvym Labets, Rivnenska oblast, Sarnynskiy region

‘This is an opportunity to prove yourself and glorify the Lord, to serve Him. In future I am planning to become a minister and pray a lot about this. Now I am aware of how to open a church in my village.’







Irina Shevchuk, Volynska oblast, Manevytskiy region

‘The mission of church planting itself calls for ‘going and teaching all nations’. We must open more and more new churches so that people would be saved.’








Tatyana Dobrynskaia, the city of Zhitomir:

‘When we tell about Jesus, there will appear the people wanting to serve Him and they will need the ministers who would teach them, interpret the Word, help to grow spiritually. To be exact, we are learning in order to spread the Word in villages, small settlements and towns…where no preacher has ever set foot.’







We are especially focused on work with the youth and plan to make evangelization among students. This new generation of Ukrainians who will become future lawyers, doctors, economists, academics, journalists, politicians, and when being Christians they will carry the Gospel into different areas of life. Every ETS graduation ends with the words from the Scripture, ‘You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.’ (2 Timothy 2:1, 2) We have already been working for 16 years in this direction.
