Paul Logan

Paul met Christ at a Billy Graham Crusade while still working as a business man in 1987. Soon after, he felt God calling him to leave his work, sell his home and other belongings and study to become a missionary. Paul and his team preach the gospel throughout the nation.

Julia Ekgardt

My main responsibility is bookkeeping which I enjoy because I’ve always been good with numbers. My favorite part about serving with Arise! Ukraine is seeing how much the ministry helps people meet their immediate needs but most importantly their need for reconciliation with God.

Edik Prokopchuk

I am a National Co-coordinator for the “Fire of Hope” ministry in Ukraine. I met Paul at a conference. He invited me to be his interpreter at a “Fire of Hope” School of Evangelism event. I love the fact that I can use my skills and experience for God’s glory and help others become more active in sharing the Truth!
