Timofey Dovgalyuk 

Founder & President

Facebook: @timofey.dovgalyuk

Timofey was born in Riga, Latvia and grew up in the Soviet Union. Timofey got this first taste of serving in the 1980’s when he and his family traveled throughout Eastern Europe as music missionaries visiting hospitals, playing in prisons, sharing the gospel and encouraging the persecuted church.

Timofey’s father was one of the founding members of the first non-profit organization in the former Soviet Union which was formed with the specific goal of serving the marginalized.

The Dovgalyuk family moved to the Washington DC area in 1991. Following his graduation from the University of Virginia with a degree in Architecture and a degree in East European Languages and Literature, Timofey and his wife Andrea founded a company in the Northern Virginia Area.

In 2014 Timofey’s father passed away after a long battle with cancer and the Lord called Timofey to take a more active role in ministry.

Timofey is a husband, a father of four and a business leader. He resides Washington, DC.
