Below are current opportunities for you to GO. There will be many additional opportunities to be on mission in Ukraine as soon as the war ends.

Teams of 8-10 volunteers are serving weekly at a ministry center operated by the Baptist Union of Moldova near the capital, Chisinau. The center, which is a new facility, houses 150-300 refugees per day. Team members may do a variety of tasks, such as meal cleanup, laundry assistance, grounds work, landscaping, unloading and sorting incoming supplies, etc. Teams may also engage the children in organized games and activities, as well as meet and pray with the ladies. Tasks will change daily and team members need to be flexible to do whatever is needed. Our presence as Christian volunteers means a great deal. Simply meeting, sitting with, praying with, and encouraging these refugees will mean a lot. The team stays in one of the houses on campus, which includes 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, a large kitchen, and meeting space. Volunteers will be assigned two to a room. (Couples can of course stay in one room together. Singles will need to double up with a roommate). The center has washers and dryers that team members can use. Meals will be taken at the center dining hall along with the refugees. Sunday will be spent worshiping with a local congregation. Cost of the trip is approximately $2000, give or take, and is dependent on current airfare.

Please contact Mark Abernathy, BOM, (mabernathy@ncbaptist.org; 919-459-5607) if you can serve as an individual, a couple, or have a small team that would like to serve. Current open dates include: June 26-July 4; July 3-11; July 10-18; July 24-August 1. More dates may be scheduled after this as well.


Medical Teams of approximately 8-10 people are currently traveling to Budapest, Hungary and driving by van to work with internally displaced people (IDP’s) in Western Ukraine. Each trip is ten days long and covers a Monday - Wednesday or a Thursday to Saturday schedule. The cost of the trip is approximately $2000-$2500 based on airfare. Final pricing is not available until flights are purchased.

In addition to meeting medical needs, each team is encouraged to listen to the stories and offer the hope of Jesus to those who have been traumatized by the war. Team members should plan to minister and pray with the patients and their families as daily medical clinics are hosted each day.

We are seeking qualified physicians, family nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, interpreters (Ukrainian/English), chaplains and drivers to help with this opportunity. If space is available, we will allow others to join the teams to help out in the local warehouse managing supplies going to the shelters.

Some space is available on teams departing in July and August. If you are interested in serving on this project, please complete the online form. You may follow up by email to Teresa Jones, tajones@ncbaptist.org. Teams will be filled based on qualifications for the positions needed.
