CMI Ukraine Studio

Our partner in Ukraine, Paul Dudka, is a national pastor near the city of Chernivtsi. Paul was one of the very first preachers to travel to the United States and record programming here in our studios. After the very first trip here to record and upon landing back in Ukraine we already had him on television in his home country. As he exited the plane on that first trip we had already aired his program several times and someone in the airport had recognized him.

The Network

Ukraine has nearly 42 million people who need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and we are reaching a significant number of them with these messages. Paul Duka sent this message to us recently: God began to work and every week we are reaching millions with the Gospel. People started to call me from different areas and different parts of Ukraine, talking to them, and leading them to the Lord. I was trying to connect them to local churches and many people that watched my programs converted and became members of local churches. Praise God.

The Opportunity

  • 73%

    Although 73% claim some form of Christianity only 4% of those profess evangelical beliefs

  • 26

    26 out of the 78 various people groups within the country can still be classified as unreached. Lets pray that can be reclassified!

  • 45 MM

    The Ukraine has a very historic and religious culture with a potential reach of about 45 MM people

Today I got phone call from man ( central part of country) that was watching my TV programs and finely God touched his heart and watching my preaching on TV he said I just accept Jesus Christ as my own Saviour. So he has seen my cell phone number on screen and decided to call me and say THANK YOU for message. Ah it was great encouragement for me. Praise God. Please keep praying as we got new opportunity to go on new business channel and we together with CMI Eddie Wilson are going to sign new contract. Itโ€™s going be great opportunity to spread Gospel of Jesus to millions who donโ€™t know Jesus

Dear friends I am not sharing about each phone calls from people that are watching my TV programs but here is just amazing story from lady that just called me yesterday. So lady called me and said I have never heard such great message that just touched my heart. Thank you for your message. Then I asked her, can I ask you, are you saved????? Her answer was: I have visited as many as possible denominations and churches and also I am reading the Bible. Then I said, well we are not getting saved by visiting churches and even not by reading the Bible.... Then she said well God knows if I am saved. I said sure He does, but what about you dear??? And then I started from very beginning and explain her Gospel of Jesus and after one hour of phone conversation I lead her to Christ and she accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior. Praise God. Wonderful. By the way she said her family regularly watching my TV programs. But I never thought that media covers her region. Itโ€™s amazing to reach with Gospel potentially over 40 millions every week.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: NEW OPPORTUNITY Dear friends I just want share with you GREAT NEWS. Today I had meeting with owner of local business TV channel that covers three provinces ( like three states) on western part of Ukraine. Potentially over 2 millions watchers. They are on satellite and also in different internet packages. We got agreement that I can have my TV 30 minutes programs on their channel twice a week, which is very great. Also if we have contract for year and pay our programs then they are willing to give me 3 minutes extra for free for another short program, Gospel presentation almost every day just before local news. I THINK GOD WANTS PEOPLE TO HEAR GOOD NEWS FIRST, and then political news, that what it looks like. I AM REALLY EXCITED about new opportunity to reach lost people for Jesus. Thanks to Christian Media International for faithful partnership in Gospel. KEEP PRAYING ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
