He started a church in his home town of Ivano-Frankivsk where he became Bishop of the region. The church thrived and grew during his time there and today is one of the largest churches in the area. Pastor Eugene moved to the United States in 1999 with his wife  and seven children and began his pastoral ministry here shortly afterwards. He pastored SFG Church for over 20 years, during which he trained young leaders.
