Richard and Denise’s focus will be:
- To help plant, grow and strengthen churches
- To expand outreach to orphans
- To assist other ministries in multiplying their efforts
R&D will be in Kyiv, which is in north central Ukraine. Many refugees have relocated to this area after being driven from their homes by the conflict in the east. More than 2.9 million people now live in and around Kyiv and many are hungry to hear the good news of hope, healing and salvation in Christ. Kyiv is also conveniently located near other kingdom ministries and will serve as a central hub for Richard and Denise to partner with those organizations in reaching, teaching and serving the people of Ukraine.
Richard and Denise have initially given a five-year commitment to this mission, with plans to live in Ukraine eight to nine months each year. The remaining three to four months yearly will be spent fundraising for specific projects and ministry needs to further the kingdom in Ukraine.
Donations can also be mailed to:
Southside Church of Christ • 2101 Hemphill Street • Fort Worth, TX 76110
