FULL-TIME MISSIONARY IN PARIS
My name is Anatoliy Solodovnyk and I am a pastor-missionary.
I was born on 06/18/1985 in Dnipropetrovck region of Ukraine to a family of evangelical Christians. My father, third generation pastor, started planting a lot of churches when I was young, so I grew up in a pastor's family.
When I was 6 years old, I attended a big revival, there I was baptized with the Holy Spirit. Shortly after in 1997, I had my water baptism and by the end of that year I became a home group leader, that was a time of second wave revival in Ukraine.
The church consisted of 300 members in 1997 and grew to 2700 members by beginning 2000. Only just a year later in this ministry I became responsible for four home groups!
Between the ages of 13 to 22, I was ministering in the church as home group planter. At age 18 I was ordained as an elder of the church!
