About Nadia Ayoub's ministry
In November 2010 Nadia Ayoub began a new appointment serving in the Ukraine in early childhood education. She has been under appointment of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) since 1997, serving in Central Asia first as a long-term volunteer in women’s ministry and then as a mission co-worker with various responsibilities in social services.

Country context
The Christian community in Ukraine is more diverse than in any other nation of the former Soviet Union. The country is home to Orthodox, Catholic, Reformed, Lutheran and Baptist traditions and also newer Christian groups.  The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is engaged in a close mission partnership with the Reformed Church in Carpath–Ukraine and relates to other Reformed denominations as well as to the German Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Union of Evangelical Christians-Baptists of the Ukraine.  The Reformed Church of Carpath-Ukraine is a largely ethnic Hungarian community in the Transcarpathian region of western Ukraine. This denomination has over 100 congregations in both village and city settings. A primary thrust of mission work in Carpath-Ukraine is sharing the gospel with Roma people and addressing the discrimination, poverty, and social separation experienced by the Roma.

About Nadia Ayoub
Born into a Christian family in Egypt, Nadia and her family immigrated to the United States in 1985. “By age 10," she says, "I was aware of the loving friendship I have with the Lord Jesus Christ and I trust him as my Savior.”

Before she left Egypt Nadia had earned her Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture from Ain Shams University in Cairo and also her Bachelor of Science degree in Christian theology from the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo.

Read the article "School daze" about Nadia's ministry with Roma children

In the Ukraine Nadia is developing and assisting the Reformed Church in Carpath-Ukraine to implement church-related early childhood education programs for Roma children in marginalized Roma communities. This pre-evangelism outreach will steadily improve the self-esteem and status of Roma children and their parents in the eyes of other Roma and of those in the larger Ukrainian society. In addition, she is working with international and national full-time volunteers to develop a comprehensive early childhood development program that can be used by other communities in Central and Eastern Europe.

Nadia was ordained as a minister of Word and Sacrament on October 24, 2010. She is a minister member of the Presbytery of Elizabeth. Her home church is Central Presbyterian Church in Summit, New Jersey.

Birthday: December 23

  • Nadia, you are invited to help me in late March, early April when we are installing the solar-powered water system in the Szernya Roma School. I know you have other responsibilities and travel, etc., is difficult, but I would love to work w/ you. Is there something particular you want me to bring you for your work? by Mary Beth on 02/27/2012 at 11:55 a.m.
