The movements in Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia and Moldova have grown significantly in recent years. Today students are engaging boldly in evangelism and are organising annual mission weeks on their campuses. But other students in Eurasia enjoy less freedom. Many have to navigate tightening restrictions in their universities, along with opposition to their faith from family and friends.
IFES is supporting students through regional conferences and Formación discipleship – events that speak of gospel unity in a region where many countries are hostile towards one another. Graduate ministry is growing, students are finding innovative and creative ways to reach their friends, and groups are being pioneered in new cities and countries.
A number of countries in the region are seemingly impenetrable, but universities in some of the most closed nations in Eurasia are now sending their students to other countries for a year or more to study. In this way, many have had the chance to meet believers and hear the gospel.
