Peter thanks Dr. Kostiw for writing this book in 1965 (in Ukrainian, 96 pages) which provides a historical sketch, commemorations and statistics of the the first fifteen years of the Ukrainian Evangelical Baptist Church in Toronto.  Many past members do not even know it exists.  It contains 53 pictures and is invaluable for any person who has ever attended the Toronto church or have had a parent who was a member at this church.

This is one of the first books Peter would like to see translated into English.  Limited copies of this book are available, which Peter has distributed to several individuals who have attended the church in the past. In August 2009, in memory of Dr. Kostiw's life and contribution to the Ukrainian Baptist work, Peter started interviewing past and current members of the church, to preserve this special history, as many of them are 80 years of age and older.

Much of Peter's research on the Toronto church was started in 1999, when Peter started planning for a special 50th Anniversary Service which was held on Saturday June 3rd, 2000. [See 50TH ANNIVERSARY section]
