MJBI is transforming lives around the world by equipping leaders, like Olek and Hanna Shainoga, who are called to reach Jewish people. They met, trained, and married as students at the MJBI in Odessa, Ukraine. After graduation, the Shainogas stayed on to help at the school, serving faithfully under the leadership of Val and Tatyana Sviontek. They are now making history in Warsaw, Poland, coordinating the first ever EU accredited Messianic Jewish Studies program available in Europe—with an inaugural class of 28 students from five different nations!
