Messages of Support from Dr. J.D. Greear & Dr. Gary Chapman
UPF is honored to count Dr. J.D. Greear and Dr. Gary Chapman as friends who enthusiastically support UBTS! We appreciate their inspiring perspectives on what God is doing in Ukraine through UBTS.
Dr. Greear is the Pastor of The Summit Church in Durham, North Carolina and President of the Southern Baptist Convention. In the following video, he shares his excitement about how UBTS is fulfilling its mission in Ukraine.
Dr. Gary Chapman is the well-known author of The 5 Love Languages and a sought-after speaker and counselor.
I greatly admire the commitment of UPF to the Ukrainian Baptist Theological Seminary, and how faithfully its board and donors have supported the Seminary’s mission and vision.
The Seminary is blessed with leadership, dedicated faculty and staff, and has seen tremendous growth in attendance and graduates flowing into churches throughout Ukraine and beyond.
It has been my privilege to help support a Pastoral Care Professor at UBTS. In today’s world, pastors need not only theological training, but training in practical skills in helping individuals who are struggling with real life issues.
And, having spent more than forty years as a pastoral counselor, I am excited about the new Masters of Counseling program. Never has the need for Christian Counselors been greater in the Ukraine and around the world. In supporting UBTS, Christians are investing in kingdom work that will greatly impact the world.
