Missionary, Publications Director
Irina Volodarska was born in Kiev, Ukraine. Like most Jews in the Soviet Union, her parents were atheists. But, by God’s grace, Irina came to know Jesus as her Messiah at age fifteen. She served in several different ministries, focusing on translation of Christian literature and work with disabled children. For several years, Irina did translation work for Jews for Jesus. In 2000, she joined Jews for Jesus in Kiev as the publications director.
We are charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), a Christian watchdog group. This group requires us to comply with rigorous standards of reporting and auditing. As the old Hebrew National hot dog slogan used to say, "We answer to a higher authority."
88% of the money that supports Jewish Evangelism comes from donors like you.
Jews for Jesus is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We trust God for the funding of Jews for Jesus, and He has provided through caring Christians. Each missionary raises his or her own support. We ask our Christian friends to support their local churches first. Then we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to our ministry as well. We welcome the support of all Christians, though we particularly appreciate those who include our ministry in their regular missions giving.
