Due to extensive media coverage, most of us are probably aware of current events involving Ukraine.
However, this tells very little of their story. Years of Soviet occupation and artificial famine has given rise to some of the highest rates of alcoholism, divorce, abortion and suicide in the world. This has left most of the populace with an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. Since 2007, SON Network has had the joy of working alongside the remnant of the Lutheran church in Ukraine to bring the Light and Hope of the Gospel to this often overlooked and underserved country.View Opportunities
SON’s Work in Ukraine
English Bible Camps
SON Teams often come back to North America with a renewed sense of vision and understanding of what it means to do missions in their own context of ministry. Historically, English Bible Camps in Ukraine draw over 120 students at a time and are often held in local public schools!
Regional Learning Center
In Early March 2019, SON Executive Director, Pastor David Breidenbach; NALC Bishop Emeritus, John Bradosky; and NALC Assistant to the Bishop for Missions, Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba hosted the first Regional Learning Center conference, focused on discipleship, for pastors from all three Ukrainian Lutheran Denominations (DELKU, SELKU, and ULC). Plans for annual conferences have been well received and the second annual conference will take place in March 2020.
