Steiger Ukraine: reaching and discipling the young generation
According to press release, Steiger Ukraine is focusing on reaching and discipling young generation for Jesus. The teams are fervently working in 5 cities of Ukraine, responding to the need of young people and making an impact on our society.
The Life in Ukraine is quite challenging right now, war is still raging our heart aches to hear about the deaths of dear Ukrainians people on the East... But at the same time every Christian in Ukraine can testify of a special grace that we all feel and experience, and grace to do the work of Jesus and be His disciple.

According to Denis and Angela Tkachenko from Sumy, they focus on reaching and discipling the young generation.
By the grace of God they are able to respond to the events in our country, and able to send more than 230 MP3 players to the Ukrainian soldiers that are fighting in the Eastern Ukraine and also some of the players were given to the wounded soldiers in the hospitals. They pass around these players after listening, so we believe more than 1000 people listen to the gospel. The goal is to send 1000 MP3 players to the soldiers, also to help the soldiers with warm clothes and medical supplies.

On November 21-22 they were holding 8th Annual National Ukrainian youth conference in Sumy Ukraine, at our church Ark. Over 350 people from 17 cities and 40 different denominations gather together to embrace the message “My Life is My Mission”.
We had a great response from the people and our prayer is that many of them would go back to their cities and start Doing the Gospel rather than just Hearing it.
“Thank you for helping me to re-new my view on missions and my own life,” said Alex.
“I re-evaluated my life values and made decision to live wholeheartedly for Christ,” Alina.

“We feel very strong that we need to invest in this young generation helping them to look at their lives as their mission. Our goal is to help local churches by raising evangelists and young brave Christians. Our next dream project is - Community Art Center called “The HOME,” where we want to combine hostel, art-gallery and café,” said Angela.
Right now they are looking for the right facility in Sumy and as soon as we find it, we are going to launch the program. This will be a place to save and disciple the young people of Sumy.
The vision of Steiger Ukraine is to raise up Ukrainian missionaries to reach the secularized global youth culture for Jesus, particularly in the Russian-speaking world. The vision for Steiger Ukraine includes: Raising up a network of young Ukrainian missionaries; Forming a Russian speaking No Longer Music focused on the Russian world; Establish a youth center in Sumy that will reach young people through sports and the arts.
