Pastoral Leadership Development

The Position

Ukraine is one of the largest and poorest countries in Europe and struggles with a lack of trained spiritual leadership, unhealthy churches, and broken families. While the needs are great, so are the opportunities to serve the church through leadership development and team building ministries.​

Together with our Ukrainian partners, we are currently:​

  • Training church members through local church-centered Bible schools
  • Developing church leaders through the Church Ministries Institute
  • Providing online courses
  • Developing church leaders

With more teammates, we dream of:

  • Developing an internship program for potential missionaries from North America
  • Offering ABWE training courses on the field
  • Maintaining a list of books and online resources for personal development
  • Having an experienced pastor do one-on-one mentoring
  • Offering courses exclusively for ministers
  • Designing a mentoring handbook for ministers

Does this inspire you?

The Need

Ukraine’s strategic location and volatile civil climate have uniquely prepared it to receive the gospel. Located between Europe and Asia, Ukraine has become a launching pad for missionaries to Eurasia and Central Asia, including countries like Russia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan where there is little to no religious freedom.

Ukraine, on the other hand, has experienced far greater religious liberties over the past 20 years, allowing for the cultivation of church-planting and, more recently, missions movements.

The opportunities to be a part of sending the gospel throughout the world by ministering in Ukraine are vast. Will you join our team?

The Impact

You can make a huge impact through developing new leaders on the mission field. Our missionaries spend enormous amounts of time and energy encouraging, training, and discipling men and women to become Christ-filled leaders to their own people and nation. We focus on providing leaders with practical skills to help them build healthy churches that embrace their own role in missions. Whether it’s teaching classes at one of our seminaries, mentoring a small group of believers, or providing one-on-one accountability, we need people who are committed to forming leaders that build healthy churches and embrace their own role in missions.
