From the start of the Russian invasion, Multiply has been working continuously with leaders of our MB churches in Ukraine, led by Maxym Oliferovski, with Multiply’s efforts coordinated by Johann Matthies, Regional Team Leader for Europe & Central Asia. Together they have provided immediate financial assistance to churches inside Ukraine to fund their relief efforts, evacuated and resettled over 50 people, purchased vehicles used in relief ministry, and organized multiple convoys of food and medical supplies from Germany. The Multiply “Ukraine in crisis” webpage is constantly being updated with the latest info, prayer requests, giving details, photos, and videos as Multiply receives them from those on the ground.
In 2018, MB Mission embraced a new name: Multiply. The tagline of the new global mission agency was: together that the world may know. Still based in the Mennonite Brethren family, Multiply was called to facilitate church planting locally, nationally and globally. The vision was focused on making disciples, planting churches and growing partnerships.
