Sasha & Nataliya Dubovyk
Diana & Yuliana
Sasha grew up in Eastern Ukraine, spending the first twenty years of his life in Kharkiv. In 1999, he heard God's call on his life to become a missionary in Rivne, 800 kilometers away from his home. There, he joined a team that planted a new church called Skelya, which means "Rock". In 2002, he met and married his wife, Nataliya, and since then they have together been serving the youth in Skelya Church. Since 2010, Sasha has led their youth ministry. The Dubovyks' relationship with Josiah Venture began back in 2003, when Skelya Church began partnering with part of the JV team from Poland. In 2013, Skelya Church began serving directly with JV in Ukraine by doing English/European summer camps for youth. Later in 2015, Sasha started to teach WALK 2:6, JV's leadership training material on Christ's strategy of ministry, to youth groups across Ukraine. Sasha and Nataliya have a vision and passion from the Lord to equip youth leaders to follow after Christ. They officially joined Josiah Venture in 2016 and continue serving in Rivne with their two daughters, Diana and Yuliana.
