The pastor of American church “ House of bread”, the author of the famous Christian program “ Corner” Alex Shevchenko invited for the birthday of his church several partner missions working in Ukraine and Russia. Among them there was the charity fund “ Pilgrim”, well known outside of Ukraine.
Everybody who was at the holiday, according to the witnesses, could provide themselves with a big amount of useful information and blessings. The presentations of partner ministries, testimonies of people, bright sermons – have become an excellent gift to “House of Bread” for its birthday.
Pastor Gennadiy was a basic speaker of the conference on Sunday, he told to the auditorium about the mission of “Pilgrim” and spoke about alive God in his message and that today in the world the external Christianity dominates but it is not exactly what God wants from us.
"Go and teach all the nations" – is one of the latest instructions of the Christ walking on the Earth. The church is not called to be a candle in a hidden place, which alights just a small area around it. Its light must be accessible and as bright to alight even the furthest corners of the room. The Gospel it carries cannot be easy, shallow and comfortable. It mustn’t be theoretical and expressed in eloquent words. The Good News the church is to spread up to the corners of the world - has to be practical or to be put in practice. The ministry to people who need support and help, love and care, warmth and light – that is the true Gospel.
Among the invited people there was a famous Christian singer and composer Sergiy Demidovich who represented the TV channel TBN. The Charity fund “ Pilgrim” densely cooperates with the TV channel, having supported and participating in the national action of adoption “ You will be found”, which is called to find home and parents for each child.
