As the Russian war and atrocities continue, the Voice of Ukraine seeks to tell the story of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters and partner churches in Ukraine. The Voice of Ukraine seeks to respond to the crisis with truthful information about the war, to make critical needs known, and to assist by mobilizing prayer and resources to address these needs.
Ultimately, we want to make known the hope of Christ through all we say and do during this crisis. Thank you for joining us!
