Ukraine Crisis Response

In response to Russia's February 24th invasion of Ukraine, Avant churches in Poland, in the cities of Gdańsk and Poznań, are doing all they can to provide relief for refugees as they enter both cities. They are providing shelter, food, clothing and other essential needs. The churches are also sending teams with supplies across the country from west to east to transport refugees back to their cities. These churches need our support in prayer and resources in order to care for their neighbors in distress.

Avant's crisis response extends beyond the current efforts of these two churches in Poland as refugees make their way to other countries in Europe as well. Avant has workers and ministries in quite a few other countries in the region who are positioned to respond to needs as this crisis continues to unfold.

Ways to Pray

  1. Pray for believers and churches in Ukraine and Russia to be strengthened in this challenging time.
  2. Pray that the Ukrainian people will place their hope in Christ rather than in governments or diplomacy.
  3. Pray for believers and churches in Poland and other countries in the region as they reach out to Ukrainian refugees. Pray they will have many opportunities to share the hope of the gospel.
  4. Pray that the hope of the gospel will comfort those who are grieving and hurting amidst the brokenness and devastation around them.

About Ukraine and this Crisis


  • Ukraine is one of the most populous countries in Europe, with 43 million people. It is 70% urban. The church is growing in Ukraine, but the country overall is only 3.8% evangelical.*
  • The country underwent a revolution in 2014 and has been in a sustained conflict with Russia since then.
  • More than 3 million Ukrainians have fled the country since the invasion began on February 24, 2022. Half of them are children.
  • It is anticipated that millions more (some estimate 4+ million) may become refugees in countries like Poland, Romania, and elsewhere in Europe within the next month or two.
  • Avant has had a ministry presence in Eurasia (Ukraine and surrounding countries) for 15+ years, and other countries in Europe for much longer.
  • Avant workers and churches in the region are committed to short-term crisis relief as Ukrainians flee conflict, mid-term support as additional needs unfold, and long-term outreach to plant and develop healthy churches where there is no church.
