Alison Giblett - Ukraine

Due to corruption, conflict, economic instability and high levels of drug and alcohol addiction, many Ukrainians struggle to find hope. The recent violent conflict has resulted in about two million displaced citizens.

The Genesis ministry that I lead has eight trainers who lead four-month support groups, helping people identify things that are hindering their relationship with God and others. Prayer, scripture confession, forgiveness, mutual support and practical action are all part of the healing process.


To encourage people to trust Jesus with their lives and their pain in exchange for his fullness.


I lead the Genesis ministry which helps people replace their destructive beliefs and behaviours with God’s truth and freedom. I also help facilitate evangelism with the Holy Spirit Mission in Ukraine and abroad.

More about Alison Giblett

I was born in Thailand and grew up in Papua New Guinea, so I had early exposure to mission and different cultures. I responded to God’s call to mission at 16, but never expected to go to the Soviet Union. In 1991 God used a Russian pastor to challenge me to move there. So I left my computer career in London and have been serving since 1993, initially doing evangelism and discipleship in the Urals. Later, God brought me into drug rehabilitation ministry and Bible teaching, linked with the International Substance Abuse and Addiction Coalition (ISAAC), first in the Caucasus and then in Kiev from 2004.

Now with ISAAC part time, I support people recovering from destructive habits. I also work in evangelism and church planting with Ukrainians locally and abroad through Holy Spirit Mission. Teams serve in Ukraine, India and Europe. Through the power of God’s spirit, we reach out through evangelistic concerts, youth and children’s ministry and personal prophetic prayer to bring people to salvation. In Kiev, I am part of a church plant called Tabernacle of the Living God.

I am grateful to be sent out with the vital prayer and support through Church Mission Society. CMS is a diverse network of ministers and lay people who strive to share Jesus’ love and truth in a wide variety of practical ways. Though we come from different backgrounds, as we serve Christ together we become friends.
