This outreach to international students and young families in Kyiv desires to see a healthy multinational church grow through people coming to Christ. The church plant is contemporary in nature and seeks to create a safe environment for people of all backgrounds to come and explore their spiritual questions. Special attention is given to reaching internationals from closed countries, in addition to reaching Ukrainians. 

International student interns apply to study the Russian language at a local university, build relationships with other international students, and work closely with the SEND team to reach out to international students. Interns may live in a dorm with other students.

This is one of SEND's internships that may qualify for academic credit. Please contact us for additional information.
