“I learned about the ministry of CCX Ukraine from my wife, who repented in her student years, for which I am immensely grateful to CCX staff. For me, CCX is a unique and exciting point that intersects the lives of young people, including future leaders of Ukraine, at the crossroads of the most important years in the formation of their outlook.

I decided to become a member of CCX’s board of directors because I believe in the strategic importance of this ministry to reach the culture with the Gospel. I want to support it in every possible way, not only as a speaker at various events of CCX, but also through direct concern for the employees of the organization itself.

I hope that I will be able to introduce a pastor's point of view and the experience of many years of service to the board of directors of CCX Ukraine.”
