Natalia Avramenko (branch administrator, Skadovsk)

Greetings, beloved in the Lord! Our hearts are filled with gratitude to the Lord and to you for the great things He is doing today! The Skadovsk Branch 09 congratulates all workers in God’s field at the Vision International University on its 20th anniversary!

Our branch first opened its doors to students from Hallelujah Church in 1996. Leading the students were our pastors Vladimir and Alla Kukharchuk. It was at their initiative that the training and equipping of God's people began. During this time 41 people became Bachelors of practical theology, 4 people became Masters of practical theology and 2 of them are teaching at University now.

Education in VIU provides a good biblical foundation for future life, growth and service to God. Many of those who have completed their studies are in active leadership positions in the church in worship and missionary ministries, as ministry leaders and children's ministers, deacons, teachers, and mentors. It is a joy to see how God's children become a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, people belonging to God, “so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you…”

We thank God for this miracle that you can get high-quality, versatile and systematic education without having to leave your home! We are thankful for great anointed teachers! We say thank you to all who work at the Vision International University! God bless you!

To Him be the glory forever! Amen!
