Nashville First has the extraordinary opportunity to hear a first-hand live account of the work and ministry in war-torn Ukraine from Slavik Pyzh, the president of the Ukrainian Baptist Theological Seminary (UBTS).  Pyzh will be preaching alongside Dr. Gwaltney this Sunday, November 6 at 10:30 a.m. during Worship in the Fellowship Hall. Earlier in the morning, he will also speak to The Encouragers and Crossroads Connect Groups.

Nashville First members have generously given more than $80,000 to the UBTS as a part of war relief and ministry efforts. Thank you for helping UBTS continue its mission to train leaders and guide people to Christ.  See video below for more information about their work:
