Our hearts go out to the people of Ukraine

A Message from TWU President Dr. Mark Husbands

Dear Members of the Trinity Western University Community,
As a Global Christian University, our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people at this time. We are deeply saddened by the loss of lives and the destruction of homes and communities. Hebrews 13:3 calls us to "remember those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering."

The people of Ukraine are demonstrating extraordinary courage in defending their homeland against Russian forces. We invite you to join us in prayer for the safety, protection, and strength of the people of Ukraine.

Our hearts yearn for the end to conflict. May our gracious Lord bring about peace and the restoration of safety and freedom in Ukraine.

We are actively seeking to connect with TWU students who may be affected by this conflict. If you know of community members in our midst who need support, please encourage them to reach out to Student Life and Student Ministries teams who are here for assistance. Supports including travel assistance and mental health support can be accessed through the Student Hub at
Respectfully yours,
