ECM requires
The church in Ukraine has increased rapidly, opposite to the trend in most of Europe. In the meantime, others forms of religion or spirituallity have also become popular. In addition, the culture and economics of Western Europe greatly affect the religious attitudes of people.

The church of Ukraine especially needs equipment for church planting, church leaders, and pastoral work. ECM may contribute in these areas. ECM desires churches in the Ukraine to become strong and independent and to multuply themselves in order that Ukrainians will see the life contained in the Gospel.

Facts

Economy
Rich in mineral deposits (especially coal and iron ore) and highly arable land; Ukraine has great economic potential. A sustained postindependence economic plummet was reversed by several years of growth, but many Ukrainians hover on the edge of poverty. Transition to a market economy, while holding hope for a brighter future, has thus far been blighted by corruption, cronyism and uneven progress (cities grow while smaller towns wither and fade). Ukraine is dependent upon Russia’s oil and gas.
