He is author of numerous of articles on Holistic mission, human trafficking and social justice and co-author and co-editor of a few books. Vladimir and Yulia build teams, which are involved in integral mission. Together they raise their daughter Anna.
What motivates Vladimir?
Peace in unity – these are God’s desires for His people. The world is destroyed by misunderstanding, hate, conflicts and wars. The Church is affected by the same phenomena, and instead of being an agent of reconciliation, suffers from misunderstanding, hate, conflicts and wars. Together we need to come back to God’s original intent for His creation and for His people. WEA/PRN provides this platform for churches to remind about God’s design; reaches the most unreached places in the world and creates space for dialogue. Personally, I want to be a part of this movement.
