The Research Education and Light Center, known as REALIS,is an interdisciplinary center that trains Christian leaders and special­ists and develops projects for strengthening the Christian witness to contemporary society.

The mission of REALIS is to help people to integrate the reality of Christ into the reality of their everyday life.

REALIS came into being as:

(1) a tool for building a communication bridge between the church and society,

(2) an answer to the request of several Evangelical national lead­ers from Ukraine and Russia to build a seminary for Christian leader­ship training,
