Spring of Life Church

Spring of Life is our sister church in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. In the 1990's it was a “house” church of about a dozen people; now it has an attendance of over 265 and at least six daughter churches. First Baptist Church has sent a number of mission teams to Spring of Life to conduct Day Camps (Vacation Bible Schools) and to repair a building.

The Kremenchuk Bible College is attached to the church and Pastor Alex Zigalenko, was both pastor of the church and director of the Bible College.

READ Ministries also grew out of this relationship with a number of men taking the lead to supply machines and materials so a Christian printing operation could take place in Ukraine.

Spring of Life has supported First Baptist Church with much prayer and encouragement for us.
