Located in the former Soviet Union, Ukraine sits on the borderland between East and West. It is a country torn by the ravages of communism, corruption, and war with Russia, but God is using all these things to open people to the gospel. Across this ancient nation, MTW Ukraine has started a dozen churches that now form their own Presbyterian denomination and have their own seminary, buildings, and numerous ministries. MTW partners with this national denomination to see the church grow and reach further into their region and beyond.

In Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, the MTW team is helping nationals plant several Presbyterian churches, including an English-speaking international church. Additionally, the Evangelical Reformed Seminary of Ukraine trains pastors and other church leaders with a Reformed biblical worldview to minister in their context. Grounded in the gospel and working to plant Ukrainian churches and equip national Christian leaders, MTW Kyiv aims to foster the growth and expansion of the church throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Pray for two women, Monika and Andrea, who have recently come to faith against the odds in a hard-to-reach, largely atheistic European city.

Pray for Monika, that God would continue to heal her, give her a new purpose, and protect her life from physical harm, and for Andrea, that she would grow deep roots of faith and be a witness to those like her—unlikely subjects—of the reality of the grace of God.

Pray for the safety of believers in Ukraine. Pray for God to use the crisis to strengthen their faith and bring more Ukrainians to Christ.

Pray for believers in Ukraine during a time of political uncertainty.

Give thanks to God for believers in Ukraine who are standing strong and joining together across denominations for prayer.
