My name is Alexa Pascari, and I am the pasor of the Baptist Church in the village of Dinauti, region of Cernivtsi, in South-West Ukraine.
I am married with Nadia Gogoman and together we have eight children, four daughters and four sons: Aliona, Adela, Slavic, David, Alina, Daniel, Iosif, and Lilia. Aliona and David are married, and we have four small grandchildren.
I grew up in a family where only my mother was a believer, my father was not. I came to know the Lord Jesus because of my godly mother, thus in 1978 I became a believer, and in 1980 I was baptized with the new believer’s water baptism.
In 1989 I was elected elder in the church in Dinauti, and two years later I was ordained as the pastor of this church. Since that time I continue to serve as the senior pastor, and I also serve in other smaller rural churches.
