Mission Centre in Southern Ukraine
In southern Ukraine, just a few kilometres from the border with Romania and Moldova, lies the town of Ozorne. Since 2012, it has been home to a mission centre where Christians from southern Ukraine and Moldova meet.
It all started in a garage
The Christian church in Ozorne started holding meetings in the year 2000. The church came together in a garage where the facilities were far from optimal. In 2008, plans were made for an own hall. On a purchased site, existing buildings were renovated in order to serve as a meeting hall.
In 2010, the project got off to a new start with the construction of a mission centre where the churches of southern Ukraine could meet. A conference hall was built where about 400 people can attend the Christian meetings (religious services) with good facilities for multi-day conferences. Thanks to the efforts of volunteers from the Ukraine and abroad, the centre was opened in 2012. The WEW Foundation made financial contributions to this project.
A place of edification
Today, almost 500 Christians from eight different churches in southern Ukraine and Moldova meet at the multi-day Christian conferences. Thanks to the good sleeping and eating facilities, there is, in addition to worship services, ample opportunity for the informal exchange of faith. The centre also offers good opportunities for Christian child and youth work.
