Dennis and Lydia Bowen will soon celebrate 20 years in the Former Soviet Union, first in Russia and then in Ukraine. Dennis is a clinical psychologist and Lydia is a nurse. We have been blessed with a team of 9 Christian counselors in Kyiv, Ukraine. In 2006 their ministry was registered as a religious mission, Восхождение. In 2010 we purchased a small office in Kyiv that is the site for our internship training and also a two year modular program of 8 courses in Christian counseling. Our counselors provide individual, marital and family counseling for children and adults. Since Russia’s war with Ukraine, we’ve been involved in counseling refugees, soldiers at a military hospital, and young widows of soldiers and their families.
