BIO

Victor Kubik was born October 3, 1947 in Hannover, Germany, in a displaced persons camp, in the aftermath of World War II. He emigrated to the United States with his parents in 1949 and became a naturalized citizen of the United States. His educational experience includes attending the University of Minnesota and then Ambassador College in Pasadena, California. He graduated from the Bricket Wood, England campus of Ambassador College in 1969 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Since 1969 he's served in the ministry of the Worldwide Church of God starting in Sioux Falls, South Dakota church. My career took me to congregations in Rapid City, South Dakota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Paducah, Kentucky and then back to Minneapolis. In 1990 he was appointed assistant director of Church Administration for the Worldwide Church of God and worked from their world headquarters in Pasadena, California. His special interest is evangelism, especially being concerned with what local congregations could do to further the gospel. He regularly contributed articles for the church?s various publications. For the church?s Youth magazine he wrote a question and answer column for over three years. In April of 1995 he helped with the founding of the United Church of God that is now based in Cincinnati, Ohio. He served on the transitional board and directed Ministerial Services until December 31, 1995. On the Council of Elders he chaired the Local Church Building Committee and now the Media and Communications Committee. He also serve on the Education Committee. he was reelected to the Council of Elders in May 2001 to serve another three year term. He speaks fluent Ukrainian, also Russian and has traveled extensively around the world, particularly in Eastern Europe. He has developed contacts with broadcast management in St. Petersburg, Russia and currently doing humanitarian work in Ukraine, Malawi, Zambia and other places. He has worked with emerging religious groups in western Ukraine to which he has traveled to on many different occasions since 1992. In 1999 he founded LifeNets, a non-profit organization devoted to helping needy people in practical ways and helping them become self-sufficient. His website tells the story of this work at www.lifenets.org.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Our goal is to help people help themselves. We are committed to continue supporting the areas in which we are serving as the programs are bringing about meaningful results and opportunities in many lives. We are planning to build a secondary school in Blantyre, Malawi. Education is key, and government schools are lacking. The school will help impart a quality education as well as provide needed employment in construction, teaching, administration and other service jobs."
