What are we about?
Our goal is to ignite and encourage passionate followers of Jesus who impact others in their spheres of influence for the glory of God: in families and friend groups, among neighbors, at work and in school, and in their community.
Disciple- (n.) one who follows; a student; a learner
At the end of His ministry on earth, Jesus commisioned His followers to do something that would change the world-go and make disciples. He calls us to do the same; but what exactly is discipleship, and what does it look like today? Discipleship, in a nutshell, is walking alongside others as we follow Jesus together; "baptizing them...and teaching them to observe all that [He has] commanded [us]" (Mt 28:19-20). It's not always a program, and it's not always simple. Disciple making involves helping someone see his or her need for a Savior and then showing him or her what it looks like to live that decision out in everyday life together.
Discipleship is sharing over coffee what's been hard and what God has been doing in our lives. It's also BIble study and questions about how those lesson apply to life today. Discipleship is praying for people God has placed in our lives and also providing encouragement and accountability to reflect Christ in every moment, in words and actions.
Just think- Jesus' original twelve followers and others make disciples who in turn made disciples, who eventually made disciples out of you and me. What would our lives be like today had it not been for the obedience of a few ordinary guys several centuries ago? We are all called to make disciples of all nations. Will you join us?
Following Jesus where He's placed us?
TEAM Ukraine seeks to bring the life of Jesus Christ to the people of Ukraine by following Jesus while embedded deeply within society. We seek to show people Jesus both in our words and our actions as we live our daily lives and share His life at all levels of society as God opens doors. Our emphasis is on being and making disciples who love God with all of our lives, and on loving our neighbors with all the strength and compassion that God gives as Jesus grows His church here in Ukraine.
The majority of ministry takes place in our immediate community because we are called to be salt and light where God has placed us, and that starts with those who live next door. We (the Church) desire to bring the light of the kingdom of God into dark places, that Jesus would be glorified even there. TEAM Ukraine is utterly dependent on prayer, because everything we do depends on God's work in the lives of people.
We work in teams, because the church is a team. We seek to partner with all believers from various denominational backgrounds with an emphasis on knowing and following Jesus as He reveals Himself to us in the Bible and in our daily lives. Our team desires to see Ukrainians cross over from death to life in Christ as His Church lives their lives for His glory and follow Jesus together.
Team Ukraine exists to fill Odessa with the sweet fragrance of Jesus through growing disciples who passionately follow Him together and impact all layers of society.
