Hey, my name is Tatyana! Thank you for checking out my website! I'm 22 years old, a recent Kingswood University grad, and I currently have the honour of serving at Eastgate House of Prayer.
I was born in Birobidzhan, Russia and was adopted at the age of nine months old. From there, I moved across the earth to Newfoundland, Canada.
From a very young age, it was noticeable that God had marked my life in a very special way. Passions for evangelism, preaching, and musical worship arose and were expressed frequently.
While attending a Christian summer camp at the age of 12, I radically encountered the presence and power of the Holy Spirit for the first time. Ecstatic about this new love, joy, and peace I'd found - I had no other choice but commit my life and everything to the Lord forever.
A few years later, I was awake late at night watching IHOP-KC's Young Adult conference that was live streamed. Mike Bickle was sharing on the Anna calling (Luke 2) - to spend one's life in the place of fasting, worship, prayer, & intercession day and night. I remember feeling such a stirring in my heart as I wept before the Lord - wanting to consecrate my life to Him in this way.
My teenage years were full of ministry opportunities - from leading worship, serving communities, to mentoring one-on-one. There were also plenty of moments of rebellion, where running from God's call seemed like a better plan.
Through the many up's and down's of the adolescent years. I strongly felt the Lord calling me to Kingswood, a Bible college in Sussex, New Brunswick, to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in ministry.
It was during my time at Kingswood that a close friend of mine invited me to lead worship with him at a 24-hour worship and prayer event that was being hosted at EHOP in March of 2017. As I entered the little white church, I felt so at home. The room was full of worshippers and the feeling of authenticity and freedom was so evident.
From that point forward, I began serving at EHOP on a regular basis - from music, to kids, to youth, to media ministry. My spiritual health increased dramatically and my character growth was exponential. I then had the honour of being a summer intern in 2018 and did my practicum (part of my KU degree) in the spring of 2019. I have been serving at EHOP as full-time staff since.
The vision for EHOP is to become a 24/7 house of prayer - the first to do this in Canada. We believe it is in the heart of God to see worship and prayer happening day and night from the Eastgate. Because of this mandate, we are asking the Lord to send a harvest of workers - one who have a calling to see this vision be established. Evidently it would be quite the cost for EHOP to support so many full-time staff. Because of this, all those who serve at EHOP are getting fully-funded financially.
This is where I need YOUR help.
God has so birthed in me a passion for people, ministry, prayer, and revival in this region.
I am boldly inviting you to partner with me financially to help me fulfill the calling that I believe God has placed on my life.
