The vision of playing an aggressive part in fulfilling "The Great Commission" remains the heartbeat of PJMMI. Establishing 1,000 home churches in Ukraine, with expansion to Russia and finally China, has remained their dream!

PJMMI are witnesses! Because of this, their influence has reached past the Ukranian borders into Russia, Belarussia, Uzbeckistan, Siberia, the Russian Far East, and China. In doing so, PJMMI carries out their Pentecostal heritage of "Turning the world upside down" (Acts 17:6).
