USA & CANADIAN BOARDS
RITE-Ukraine is a joint effort of United States' and Canadian Presbyterian and Reformed churches to operate a seminary in Ukraine for the purpose of training pastors, missionaries, and teachers to carry out the Great Commission in that country and its bordering countries. To do this effectively, RITE is organized into two cooperating boards of directors, one in the United States and one in Canada. Each board has one member from the other board to ensure effective coordination.
