John and Tanya were children of revival that took place in the 90s in Ukraine where they first met when they were 13 years old. They had served in Ukraine for 10 years, before they came to Redding and completed three years of BSSM. Through some bizarre confirmations to prophetic words they received, in 2014 they knew it was time to return to Ukraine and be part of the fulfillment of a long-time prophecy about Ukraine being “a bread basket to the nations.” John serves as the senior pastor of Father’s House church in Kharkov, and oversees a number of churches in the Kharkov region. John has a passion for raising up new worship leaders and musicians who are in the process of birthing new songs that will reverberate throughout nations of the former Soviet Union. Together with an ever-growing team of young revivalists, they lead a vibrant ministry to the poor in their city, and organize an extravagant Feast of Love event for the poor every Christmas. They have multiple locations with “street churches” where they feed and minister to the poor. Equipping people in the supernatural, and raising up leaders to be missionaries, sent out to villages of Ukraine and beyond, is a big part of their vision.
