21st Century Church & School
Prague - Czech Republic
LIGHT FOR LIVING PASTOR OLEG GRICYK
Pastor, Oleg Gricyk, who planted the 21st Century church of Prague in 2009 has a long-term vision to start Christian preschool and elementary school. Moving toward his vision he graduated with honors in preschool pedagogy. This education has prepared him teach and administrate the school. In Prague the government is willing to support private schools (even those with a Christian emphasis) by subsidizing the teachers' salaries.
Word from Pastor Oleg
"Being a church planter and pastor in Prague, I understood that evangelistic outreach should be our main goal. With deep regret, I realize that in today’s Prague personal witness is simply not enough and that the Gospel should be proclaimed on a daily basis and not just to the church members, but to the world! That is why I felt God’s calling to get an education degree that will eventually allow us to start an elementary and secondary school. Previously, I never thought that a pastor would need to have an elementary education degree, but now I understand if we really want God’s Kingdom extended, we must begin a Christian educational program to teach children the Gospel along with their normal school curriculum “.
