John and Janet Hendy have served in ministry for over 25 years. 

John’s last pastoral ministry was at Wantage Baptist Church (WBC) from 1984-1996.  Their involvement with Ukraine began one evening in the early nineties when a Ukrainian Christian visiting the UK attended the Wantage BC service.  John got chatting to him before the service and interviewed him during the service.  When the congregation heard of the poverty in Ukraine, they responded by sending humanitarian aid.  As that relationship developed they discovered the Ukrainian Christians were seeking to build a church.  WBC responded by sending financial support, further deepening the UK-Ukraine partnership.  John, Janet and others began Ukraine Christian Ministries (UCM) in 1993 and John was released by WBC to fully develop the work in Ukraine.  During their ministry with UCM 26 churches were planted in Ukraine.  

We join with John and Janet in praying for the besieged people of Ukraine, many of whom are their spiritual sons and daughters.
