Breaking News


Christian Outreach International Ukraine missionaries, Alex and Patrice Dmitriev live in the far Western part of Ukraine, in a town called Uzhgorod. Right now in that town, some believers have come together to help newly arrived refugees, some children, that recently left everything they had and fled Crimea to try to start their lives over in Uzhgorod.

Alex Dmitriev is part of a team helping oversee the project. The refugees are sincere about eventually finding a life and work, but they need help to get on their feet…and, of course, the Ukrainian government won’t be able to assist them all, and probably very little. The churches don’t have much either to give, but everyone is pulling together to help.

COI will be involved in serving the refugees, by helping raise funds to minister to the physical needs of Crimean Refugees in Uzhgorod…clothes, food, rent, etc. We will be hands on in sharing and showing love and care to them, buying and directly taking them goods that they desperately need, and praying with them as God opens the door. It’s a blessing to be able to help people start a new life after crisis, trauma, and life altering events..an opportunity for Jesus to shine.

If led to be involved, click on the donate button, and put Refugees in the notes line on Paypal, or 89, on a check memo line. God Bless you and remember Jesus is Lord over the Ukraine, as we continue to pray for His work there.

Dominican Republic

The beauty of the Dominican Republic stands in contrast with the physical and spiritual poverty of many on the island. Many nominally claim Catholicism as their religion but have no understanding of a personal relationship with God. The evangelical church is growing, and many are coming to know Christ as their personal Lord.

They are anxious to have mission groups come and encourage them. Medical and sports teams, vacation Bible schools, sharing at our schools, construction projects can all be part of the work God is doing in the Dominican Republic. Outreach opportunities are endless! Come join us in this exciting, very popular, mission field!

COI’s 16 years of hands-on experience pioneering Central Florida missions gives us expertise at making your Florida outreach a success! In 1997, COI started receiving teams in Indian River County. Because there was nothing like it in the area,COI’s influence in Florida grew. Our faithfulness and experience has created an impact affecting the entire region.

Over the years,hundreds of volunteers and mission teams have been blessed, serving with COI in Florida. We have found that doing outreach and community service here (domestic missions) is safe, warm, economical, fun, and a great way to touch lives in our own country!

Today, COI is building and strengthening our legacy of outreach and service in Florida. Our International HQ remains in Vero Beach. There are lots of good ministry opportunities in Florida, so we have expanded to include Orlando, and we are working on Tampa-St. Pete area for 2015.
