Supporting the church in an historic and still troubled region
Sergey and Lena Deynekin provide pastoral leadership at the Chernobaevka Church, near Kherson, Ukraine. With support from Mennonite Church in Canada, Sergey and Lena have been able to be a pillar of strength and positive Christian hope in their community. Besides pastoral care and church leadership, their ministry includes a summer camping ministry for children. In a region that has experienced tremendous economic difficulty and political conflict, the ministry of the church, and the Deynekins leadership of this congregation is a tremendous source of hope.
