Missionaries supported by
Church of the Savior
In the Ukraine
We, George and Sarah de Vuyst, are missionaries with Resonate Global Mission (formerly known as Christian Reformed World Missions). We have been serving in Ukraine since 1998.
We began in the western region of Ukraine mentoring local missionaries and planting a Reformed church in the town of Mukachevo. Since 2010, we have been using Timothy Leadership Training to equip church leaders in healthy church practices.
In 2013 we moved to the capital city, Kyiv, where George continues to train pastors in the Timothy Leadership Training and facilitates healing and reconciliation through “Healing Hearts, Transforming Nations” workshops and trainings for facilitators.
We have three children: Abigail, Matthew and Elizabeth.
Wycliff Bible Translators
Ann Kapteyn has worked with Wycliffe Bible Translators and SIL (Summer Institute of Linguistics) for close to 20 years, serving in Brazil and Cameroon. She and her family have recently relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she serves as a missionary-in-residence at Calvin Theological Seminary.
Steve and Chris Van Zanen
Our previous service at Lithuania Christian College was a time of rich and fruitful ministry. From the day that we left in 2003, we wondered whether God might someday open the door for us to serve there again. Now He has.
In the meantime, the college has become LCC International University. Our former students have taken up amazing opportunities in government, business and not-for-profit organizations in many countries around the globe, and the school’s makeup has changed. More than 60% of the students come from outside Lithuania.
Like their predecessors, many LCC students have little prior exposure to Christian faith. Not all become Christians, of course, but all experience some of the richness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which provides holistic Good News for individuals, communities, and the world.
