Missionaries around the world are discovering that biblical storytelling is a powerful way to win the lost and plant new churches. In this workshop you will be introduced to biblical storytelling and actually learn to tell several Bible stories. You will discover a uniquely different window of understanding and insight into the text as Bible characters come to life.
Learning to tell Bible stories is an easy way to commit large portions of Scripture to memory. No matter which ministry you feel called to, storytelling will empower you to communicate with unchurched people and disciple them effectively using the same method that Jesus used.
Over the last 15 years, Dr. Paul Koehler and his wife Teresa have seen hundreds of new congregations planted in highly resistant areas by training indigenous workers to simply tell the stories from the Bible.
SERVING IN : Ukraine, Europe
MINISTRY FOCUS : Evangelism, Mercy Ministry
We are the Perekotiys, a Ukrainian and American family! We have been entrusted with four beautiful children: Chambers (2013), Lev (2015), Mila (2016), and Remington (2019). Our story began when we met in Ukraine in 2008. After living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, we packed up our gang in 2018 and moved to Odesa, Ukraine, a beautiful, historic port city on the Black Sea. While visiting family in Alabama in 2022, the full-scale invasion broke out in Ukraine. We decided to remain in the US for the 2022-23 school year while supporting our partners in Ukraine through the War Relief Fund. In August 2023, we launched back overseas to share the Gospel among Ukrainians. We are based out of Bucharest, Romania, where we can serve refugees and be close to the Ukrainian border.
Through the War Relief Fund we have sent medical aid, vehicles, food, and education supplies to those in need. The needs of the vulnerable will only increase as this crisis continues, and we are committed to partnering with our friends and partners to meet those needs. We pray to use these resources to rebuild Ukraine when the war ends.
Our heartbeat has always been caring for the vulnerable and fatherless. Our vision is to see Christ proclaimed as we serve vulnerable children and families with national partners and churches. We also serve the unreached deaf community, and provide training and trauma resources for families and volunteers. Thank you for journeying with us!
