Prison Ministry

We do prison ministry in the Donetsk and Zaporozhye regions. In the territory of the Donetsk region, which is beyond Ukraine's control, there were 13 prisons. Already for 8 months, in this territory evangelical believers are not allowed to visit prisons.

However before the war started, churches were planted and leaders were raised in each prison. Team members and volunteers of the prison ministry keep in touch with these brothers by phone, and pass them parcels and materials from the correspondence Bible school. There are practically no obstacles for the convicts and believing leaders to hold meetings inside the prisons. Administration is favorable towards the believing leaders, therefore, the brothers, in almost all prisons, have the opportunity to come together for fellowship.

Moreover, we continue to actively develop the Prison Ministry in Zaporozhye region and on the controlled by Ukraine territory of Donetsk region.

Since 2017 in two prisons we started to visit prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment, also we resumed our visits to the prison in the city of Berdyansk.

The number of volunteers is constantly growing and we already have more than 50 people who are divided into teams and assigned to specific prisons. In addition to weekly meetings in prayer rooms, we try to regularly conduct general evangelistic events in large rooms or in the open air.
