Natasha Tsurkan

​​Country: Ukraine
City: Ivano-Frankivsk

Natasha remembers being invited to Young Life club many time​s before finally saying yes to attending a Young Life summer camp in 2001. Camp was an amazing experience for Natasha, and it was there she first encountered Jesus as a friend, not a strict and distant God.

After camp, Natsha began to attend club and volunteer, and by the next summer, Natasha was trained as a group leader. Natasha served in Chernivtsy for 13 years, focusing her ministry in the local orphanages. In 2008, Natasha answered the call to move to Ivano-Frankivsk to further develop Young Life ministry there. With a small team of leaders, Natasha reaches out to teens who have never attended church.

There is a great interest in starting Young Life clubs in new areas around this city, and there are many teens who need to hear of God’s love and care for them in Ivano-Frankivsk. Pray for Natasha as she continues to develop this team of leaders and as she builds relationships with church leaders, teens and volunteers.
