Who We Are

Founding Pastors — Vasiliy and Lyubov

The church was founded in 2001 by Pastor Vasiliy and Lyubov Parkhotyuk shortly after immigrating from Ukraine to Tri-Cities, WA. Pastor Vasiliy, being a missionary to Russia, came to the USA with a burning heart to bring the good news of Jesus to the community.

He started to intentionally focus on the youth, pouring into them a vision to reach the world with the gospel, and empowering them to preach and minister at a young age. This allowed for God to raise up young leaders that now make HungryGen the church that it is today.
Lead Pastors — Vlad and Lana

Vladimir and Lana Savchuk pastor the multi-cultural and vibrant community of HungryGen. Alongside pastoring, Vlad extends his ministry through the written word and digital media as an accomplished author, YouTuber, and traveling preacher. He also offers free E-Courses through his online learning platform, VladSchool, making theology and Christian living accessible to a global audience.

Born in Ukraine into a Christian family, Vlad moved to the U.S. at 13 and began his ministry journey early, becoming the youth pastor of HungryGen at 16. After faithfully serving as youth pastor for 14 years, at the age of 30, Pastor Vlad was ordained as the senior pastor of HungryGen Church. Under his leadership, the church has grown considerably, with salvations, healings, deliverances, and a thriving student ministry that extends into public schools. HungryGen’s core mission is soul-winning and disciple-making, effectively carried out through small groups. Pastor Vlad and Lana are committed to reaching thousands locally and millions globally with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Love God.
Love People.
Change the World.

Our History

Hungry Generation was birthed from a vision in the heart of Pastor Vasiliy to help people who: don’t know God, have had a church experience void of a connection with God, and for those in need of freedom and healing from their past. The church was founded in 2001, shortly after Pastor Vasiliy immigrated from Ukraine to Tri-Cities, WA. In August of 2003, we purchased the property in Pasco, which became our home base.

From the beginning, Pastor Vasiliy has had the vision to raise the younger generation. He poured into teenagers to become ministers at a very young age. Vlad became a youth leader at the age of 16, and for 14 years, that youth group became the church that we see today. In 2016 at the age of 30, Pastor Vlad became the lead pastor of HungryGen alongside our dynamic pastors and leaders team.
