About My Family

I was born in Ukraine (when it was USSR) in a family of third generation ministers in an evangelical Baptist church. The Lord saved me when I was 16 while I was reading the Book of Romans in my room. The Lord gave me the best partner in life I could imagine in my wife, Angela. Her love for the Lord and for people, especially for lost people, made our ministry much more effective.

Our family is blessed with three sons: Ievgen (26), Alex (23) and Timothy (21). Ievgen is married now, and we have a beautiful daughter-in-law, Lily. They live in Charlotte, N.C.

While in Charlotte, we were reaching Russian-speaking people for Christ. We heard the Lord's call to come to South Florida to start a disciple-making movement among Russian-speaking people. Our goal to start churches for Russian and Ukrainian speaking people in South Florida.

About My Church Plant

Right now, Angela and I minister as missionaries and church planters trying to start the Russian-speaking church from scratch in West Palm Beach. We have a small team of people, some of them new believers, some older, but together we are praying and going through training to be more effective in making disciples. During the week, we spend time on the mission field trying to find and connect with Russian speakers. On Sunday we meet as a Russian-speaking class for Bible study and fellowship.

I mentor several potential Russian-speaking church planters whom the Lord has provided so far in South Florida. We are praying every day, according to Luke 10:2, for the Lord to send more laborers to His harvest in South Florida. Please join us in this prayer.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.
