A pastor for mission congregations

People gather to hear the Good News of the Gospel.

People gather to hear the Good News of the Gospel.

Unwilling to keep the Good News of the Gospel to themselves, the people of Concordia Lutheran Church in Nikolayev started ministry in two villages, Bogomazi and Yeleniy Yar, as well as in a local prison. In 2014 a church building in Bogomazi was dedicated and each Sunday afternoon a handful of believers meet for worship led by a Lutheran preacher from Nikolayev. But there is so much more that could be done!

People in Bogomazi need a resident Lutheran pastor, someone to work with the congregation by preaching, teaching confirmation classes and leading adult, child, and youth Bible studies. He would serve between 50-60 people. Currently, a seminary student, Vicar Valera Verba, is part of this ministry but what will happen when his studies are over?

Concordia Lutheran Church hopes to send a permanent full-time minster to serve the needs of these congregations and conduct outreach activities. The church has gathered support for transportation and a small salary, but it is asking you, through CLMS, to provide funding for a place for the pastor to live. The rent is only $150/month!


Your support for this project helps insure the growing ministry in this area continues.

I will help provide the rent for at least one month.

(Project 1519) Goal: $1800
