This team will have an opportunity choose compassion as you support our partner, Islands Christian Church in Kherson, Ukraine! Islands Christian is a church plant that set up and tore down every single week in a restaurant they rented for Sunday services for more than 10 years. Two years ago, Compassion Christian was able to help them purchase a permanent location to worship in! They are deeply convicted that Jesus Christ has the power to transform their country and that they can be a part of raising a new generation of Ukrainians who, with compassion, will lead their people out of economic depression, addiction and conflict. The team will use sports and community outreach to build relationships and invite people to fellowship at ICC as well as help to plan and host a youth camp for teenagers!
For more information about this trip please email the team leader, David Scott, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Oleg & Marina Shatalov
Oleg serves as the Teaching Pastor at Islands Christian Church (ICC) in Kherson, Ukraine. ICC was planted more than 10 years ago by our Partner Kherson Christian Church with the help of Compassion Christian. This church plant was purposefully located in a very oppressed area of the city. Unemployment is very high and alcohol abuse is rampant in the area. This church reaches out to hurting families in this community.
Please Pray for the Shatalovs:
- That Oleg would clearly hear the will of the Lord for their Church
- That Ukraine would receive mercy and protection from the Lord in it’s current conflict with Russia
- That ICC would strengthen in Spirit, have victory over sin, and that they would be bold with the Gospel and in their prayers
