God’s Covenant Reformed Evangelical Church
Rivne, Ukraine
Serhii Terentiev

Pastor Terentiev serves God’s Covenant Reformed Evangelical Church, which joined the CREC in 2017. This congregation oversees a Christian school “Svitlo” (meaning “Light”), now in its second year. Serhii played a big role in starting the school, which is a cooperative effort between the two Rivne CREC churches. Serhii currently both teaches at Svitlo, and also serves as an administrative official. This is breaking new ground for the CREC in Eastern Europe, and JEEP is providing financial support for this work.

Since COVID restrictions were implemented in Ukraine, Svitlo classes have been moved to online only. Pastor Stuart Bryan’s daughter Julia has been working at/with the school since January, and reports that despite the lockdown, Svitlo’s virtual classes are going well, and students are progressing. Please pray for Serhii, Julia, and the other teachers, and for this ministry to thrive and grow.

There are also many ministries in Ukraine, including Svitlo Christian School, the “Tsehla” Christian Youth ministry, and Nazareth House. Find out more on our ministries page.
