Despite being Europe’s second largest state, Ukraine is often considered a forgotten country. Once known as the “breadbasket of Europe,” its economy is largely dependent on the country’s rich agriculture and vast mineral deposits. The former communist state is often torn between its past and European future.
However, Ukraine enjoys a rich Christian heritage and was once known as the “Bible Belt” of the Soviet Union. Today, evangelicals are striving to reach their countrymen and Ukrainian missions agencies are taking the Gospel throughout the Slavic world. Still, over half a million people have never heard the Gospel, hailing from 38 different unreached people groups.
e3 Partners is working to ensure that a thriving local church exists in every community throughout Ukraine. We are equipping existing believers and training local pastors to identify unreached communities and share the Gospel effectively. As people come to faith in Christ, we are establishing small groups that help them take the next steps in their spiritual growth and serve as the seeds for new churches.
