Our Home Lifestyle Center & School, a ministry supporting the Seventh-day Adventist Church, is located in Central Ukraine approximately four hours from the capital city of Kiev. It began its operation as a medical missionary school in 1999. The wellness center was built soon thereafter and received its first guests in 2002. It was the second of only two Adventist health care institutions in the large post-Soviet territory. The team’s goal has always been to reach the people of Ukraine and other neighboring countries with the gospel message by ministering to their health needs and providing them with healthy lifestyle education.
More than 50 dedicated workers run the lifestyle wellness center. They have received roughly 13,000 guests since opening their doors, of which nearly 60 percent are not Adventist. This allows the staff fantastic opportunities to mingle with people of all backgrounds, helping them combat non-communicable diseases and presenting them with the joy of knowing God is a winsome manner.
Our Home’s medical missionary school offers one- and six-month courses with the option of extending training to one year with a practicum in the wellness center. Both programs run all year round. The medical missionary training program was welcomed by the leadership of the church in the Ukrainian Union Conference, offering courses for lay people and ministers. The project’s goal is to train lay people for medical missionary service inside the church and also for outside work in their communities.
Each year nearly 300 people make the journey to Our Home for the annual camp meeting. In the last nine years Our Home has motivated hundreds of people to be involved in active service ranging from individual missionary work to health organizations throughout Ukraine and Russia.
The staff members at Our Home envision the expansion of medical missionary work deeper into the territory of the former USSR. They are committed to doing their part in the proclamation of the Three Angel’s Messages to the world.
