About the author

Alexander Shevchenko was born July 7th, 1974 in Krivoi Rog, Ukraine. The city of one million became home to him for seventeen years; it was where his youth and teen years passed and where all five of the Shevchenko children, of who Alex was the oldest, spent their childhood. Nikolai and Maria Shevchenko raised Alexander, Vladimir, Sergey, Victor and Tamila in a good family atmosphere, imparting Christian values and traditions to them.

In 1991 Alexander, along with his parents, emigrated to the USA. After two more years, having studied for nine in Ukraine, Alexander finished school and left to Russia for several years (Vologda, Kostroma). There, through join efforts, they started several Christian communities.

It was during this time that Alexander’s mindset was changed, firm goals were formed and priorities derived from experience with a practical gospel were established. Working for these few years in the Russian expanses influenced the rest of Alexander’s life in a substantial way.

In 1996 he met a wonderful woman named Zhanna who was dedicated to God. She went on to become his wife and partner in the work of the ministry. Alexander and Zhanna have two children: Daniel (10 years old) and Victoria (6 years old).

In this same year, 1996, the young Shevchenko couple founded a ministry by the name of "Ugol", which in a short period of time obtained wide public recognition among the Slavic immigrants in the USA as well as in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The public could not help but notice the television programs with testimonies of people in whose life God had shown Himself in a supernatural way.

The young family was assisted by parents, siblings and a few dedicated friends in the establishment of this ministry.

The large demand for the discussions-seminars which Alexander began to record several years later brought about the opening of offices in Kiev, Moscow, Minsk, and Riga which distribute around one hundred thousand cassettes annually. Alexander receives invitations to different countries of the world and holds between eighty-eight and one hundred forty three seminars each year.

In august of 2005, after a long inner struggle that had lasted for more than a year, Alexander and Zhanna submitted to the call of God and a new Christian fellowship center by the name of "House of Bread" was opened in the city of Sacramento (California, USA) which held its first service on January 15th, 2006.

To believe in promises or in Love
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (NKJV Rom. 8:32) Then why do I fear? Why do I grab by Your promises more than by Your Love? What’s going on with me? I want to trust Love absolutely but It’s sovereign and It scares me. Does it mean I am not perfect in Love? Since “perfect love casts out fear”.

Recognize and announce the position
Spiritual position is a man’s place determined by the law of God in accordance with his inward life.  A man of  holy orders (a priest, a bishop, a pastor) must be able to recognize and announce the position, i.e.  make a congregation aware of  an individual church member’s position. “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your...

Create the waiting atmosphere
“Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had” (NKJV Jn. 5:2-4)...

Stay in your sphere
“…We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us” (NKJV 2-Cor. 10:13). The only things that appear as the respond to the Holy Spirit’s manifestation through us can be considered ministry results or success. God pours out His grace just on the sphere of His will. So, our main purpose is to be obedient and to keep the heart in the way it can be used.

The value of spiritual credo
“Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? … He who swears to his own hurt and does not change” (Psalm 15) People often ask how to enter God’s calling. Joseph, David, Mordecai, Daniel and other men of faith had the calling from God but they moved in it in an absolutely natural way. Being right in the middle of the worst situations ever, that had nothing to do with their calling, these...

Never return back
“ confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return”. (Heb.11:13-15) What road signs will determine our future? Are we still willing to prefer Egypt caldrons to the Promise Land today? Will we fail again in...

Features of a grateful heart
To praise someone else is absolutely alien for the flesh selfishness. It causes envy and exposes selfishness-based jealousy concealed inside. All the things must revolve around just one axis. Praising God pulls down the scale of flesh values and deprives my “Self” of any claims for the place in the sun. Admiration alone is absolutely shameless. So, worship is nothing else but admiration to the extend of deification!

Whatever is not from faith is sin
“Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin” (NKJV Rom. 14:22-23) To follow the Holy Spirit’s call doesn’t release me from the law responsibility. Not at all. On the contrary, the Spirit’s call challenges me to surpass a...

The price of the spiritual unity
At the initial stage sin leaven is less dangerous than the leaven of liberalism. The main thing is to infect the society with the tolerance bacteria. Whatever can be a subject to tolerate. "Thus says the Lord God of Israel: 'Let every man put his sword on his side, and go in and out from entrance to entrance throughout the camp, and let every man kill his brother, every man his companion, and every man his neighbor" (Ex....

Faith role and definition
Faith exists just in the present. Its formula is “is” since it’s bound to You Alone, and since You are I “am”, so faith is “is” as well. And as soon as You become I “was”, so faith is over. It means other profs are needed and the soul realizes it at once; so it’s threshes about seeking the own salvation evidence relying on the past experience of faith, baptism, covenants and so on, with no understanding...

A ruler or a manager
First of all, it's important to see an essential difference between a ruler and a manager. In Christian education institutions the majority of nowadays books and study courses introduce secular view on management and leadership, considering a goal-setting skill the most distinctive characteristic of a leader. So, the emphases is shifted from the REVELATION (which is God's guidance) to faith as the most powerful human...

Theocratic authority
Ranks and the seniority principles are typical of the spiritual realm. When it gets to the community, God picks out a mediator, one man from the nation, and anoints him for a certain mission. It's radically different from the democracy system when people elect President candidates to promote their interests. There is no happy medium, these are two world systems -- theocratic and democratic. "And the Lord said to...

The spiritual bareness curse
The spiritual bareness is a secret deception. The membership in the Church Body is determined by your function not your attendance! What do you do in the Body? What will change in the Body when you are removed? Will anyone notice that? Do you know why THE WHOLE BODY IS AGONIZING when one member is hurting? It’s because the whole Body is affected when one organ has failed it’s function. “For the earth which...

Shall we be led by the Spirit or by the Law
Any structure that governs the church abandons its mission as soon as it limits its vision. The church is an organism, and for that reason there can be no such thing as “the true church structure.” The church is alive, and that means that it grows, and that means that it changes. The process of change requires that all aspects of the church structure are constantly maintained and attuned to the needs of the moment. As...

Illnesses The causes and the consequences
People may name thousands of various “diseases”, but in most cases all our physical and social problems can be reduced to spiritual ones. It is established that up to 70% of stomach problems are directly connected with the mental stress of a person, his anxieties and his unwillingness to forgive. A person is a composed of the spirit, soul and body, but his spirit is the most important substance. “May God himself, the...

Ability to hear Rhema
How to create conditions in which the Holy Spirit begins to speak to the heart? What is spiritual intelligence? What is the revelation of the Word and understand the scriptures? And finally, that it produces in the inner world of man? "...the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen." (2 Corinthians 13:14) "...I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her" (Hosea 2:14)
