Richard & Denise Baggett

Richard and Denise have worked with ministries among the Ukrainian people for more than two decades. During that time, they networked with numerous ministries and kingdom organizations across Ukraine. They have an understanding of the people, their culture, and their needs.


God called R&D back to Ukraine to be a part of  planting churches, ministering to orphans and children at risk, and assisting other organizations in multiplying their efforts. God has prepared them for this time and this mission. In over 30 years of service, He has given them the tools, skills, connections and resources they need to help in bringing this nation to Him. He has prepared the hearts of the Ukrainian people and they are open and ready to hear the transforming message of Christ. R&D are ready to answer His call to deliver the good news!
