LCC WELCOMES REV. LARRY MYERS TO HELP DIRECT FINANCIAL AID TO UKRAINE
Lutheran Church Charities welcomes Rev. Larry Myers, retired pastor, and retired United States Air Force (USAF) Reserve Chaplain, Colonel on staff to help direct critical financial aid to Ukrainian citizens affected by the extreme violence and devastation that still continues.
Rev. Myers is highly-respected for both his mission work and military service throughout the world. He is the first reserve chaplain of any branch to serve on the Joint Staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and has served twice on the Air Staff in the Office of the Chief of the Chaplain Service. During his thirty years as USAF Reserve Chaplain, ten years were overseas in Pacific and Europe cross-cultural environments. Rev. Myers also brings a wide range of civilian experience working in the mission field, parish, classroom, and national staff work.

As the violence and devastation in Ukraine continues, the need for support to save lives increases. Lutheran Church Charities continues to get your financial donations immediately to Ukraine through our strong partnerships.
The families of the Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches in Ukraine (SELCU) pastors (their wives and children) have been evacuated from Ukraine to Romania, where they have received the assistance of the Confessional Lutheran Church of Romania, an alliance church of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. From Romania, they move on to other countries, especially Germany, where pastors and congregations of the SELK (Selbstständige Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche), a partner church of the LCMS, assist them. The pastors remain in Ukraine to provide Word and Sacrament, as well as humanitarian relief to members and their communities.
Pastor Verba and Pastor Oleksiy Navrotskyy have left Odessa and are currently in Mykolaiv, where Pastor Navrotskyy's congregation is located. This is very dangerous for them. Pastor Verba doesn't dare return to his city, Nova Kakhovka, which is near Kherson. Please continue to pray for their safety and that of their congregation members.
At the SELCU Mission Center, pastors and remaining members are busy every day feeding and clothing displaced persons and transporting refugees to the Romanian border. They assist approximately 100 people each week.
Rev. Oleg Schewtschenko (SELCU) shared, “Financial support is very crucial right now. We are trying to see how we, as the Church, can serve. We gather together to look at the resources we have—the funds, the vehicles, and even the people—to see how we can face a new day and what the priorities are for this new day. Funds also support medical care for families of soldiers.”
LCC has been and will continue to collect financial donations to be given out “Dollar per Dollar” to help the people of Ukraine to show the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ. We continue to work through churches, Christian Ministries, and leaders with direct connections to Ukraine, including these partnerships:
