History of Involvement in the Region- From 1994-2000, NC Baptists had a full partnership with Ukraine Baptists. NC Baptist Churches sent hundreds of volunteers to purchase and renovate the seminary in Kiev, construct many churches across Ukraine, do medical, church planting and many other projects in Ukraine. There were many relationships that were established with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters and we grieve and pray for them now.
Through the Roma Partnership, Baptists on Mission have worked in the Carpathian region of Ukraine since 2008 and are now responding to the urgent need brought about by the ongoing conflict. Working with our partner organization and in-country personnel in Hungary, we are preparing to provide temporary housing for displaced families and providing food and essential supplies to families in Ukraine.
Today and during your Sunday worship services, we are asking you to pray for Ukraine. Please pray:
- For Ukrainians. They are understandably scared. Yet, they remain hopeful for an end to this situation. Their faith is strong.
- For leaders around the world. Crucial decisions will be made in the coming days. Pray leaders have wisdom in those choices.
- For Christian leaders in the nations surrounding Ukraine. As people flee into these nations, they will have significant needs. God, give churches there the heart and resources to meet those needs as Christ would.
On faith, we have sent a significant amount of funds to assist people in the region. These funds are being used to assist displaced Ukrainians. Your gifts to Baptists on Mission will provide non-perishable food, toiletries, medical supplies and other essential needs for temporary housing. To Give by Check: Baptists on Mission, P. O.

God has opened doors for us to send volunteers into Hungary and Poland to assist with refugees who have left Ukraine. Because of the war, things change often. Right now, we are sending volunteers to assist displaced refugees and we are keeping a list of potential volunteers who have a passport and would be willing to go and assist in relief efforts. We have had many more people to volunteer then we are able to send. Signing up will put you on a list of potential volunteers if this was needed.
