Enter the Mission of READ.
The seeds of READ started in 1999 with George Johnson, through an organization called The Shepherd's Foundation. Shepherd's was a humanitarian and partnership ministry which saw a huge need for Pastoral Leadership inside the emerging Ukrainian church. This task was beyond the scope of Shepherd's ministry, but it inspired George Johnson to find a way to supply Christian growth resources to these leaderless churches.
In 2002, READ was officially born.
Since that time, READ has worked diligently to supply resources to help young leaders learn to lead, pastor, and grow churches throughout the countries of the former Soviet Union.
The needs have proven to be almost endless, but READ is making a serious dent through the passionate and dogged pursuit to make sure every believer, in every church throughout the region, can truly grow in faith and bring the gospel to their communities.
Please consider joining forces with READ to accomplish this amazing mission set before us.
