21st Century Church
LIGHT FOR LIVING PASTOR OLEG GRICYK
We completed the first step in getting closer to our big dream by creating a multifunctional facility where the following events will take place: Sunday worship - the center of all other work for the Lord as everything starts from worshiping God. Daily center providing a hot meal for mothers and children who are refugees from Ukraine. Using this informal atmosphere, people from outside will connect to the place where Sunday worship happens as well as these programs: Introductory Bible group for nonbelievers. Kids club. Youth meetings. Bible study for Christians.
Pastor, Oleg Gricyk, who planted the 21st Century church of Prague in 2009 also has a Christian preschool in another location. Their long-term vision is to start an elementary school. Moving toward his vision he graduated with honors in preschool pedagogy. This education prepared him to administrate the school. The church was meeting in the preschool facility but outgrew that space. With the new church facility it can continue to grow meeting the spiritual needs of the community.
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 “.
