This mission is committed to reaching former republics of the Soviet Union with a special emphasis in western Ukraine. A church established in Ternopil, Ukraine, the Old Park Church of Christ, is the base of operations for spreading the gospel throughout the region. The church reaches out through Bible Camp, VBS, and other outreach programs. The ministry began through Stephen Bilak’s desire to bring the message of Jesus Christ to his homeland. Since his death in 2004, the ministry continues through efforts of the Minter Lane Church of Christ in Abilene, Texas.
