pbsemenchuk_profile_sepAfter finishing high school, Paul graduated from the Russian Bible Institute in Toronto, received a BA degree from Bob Jones University, and studied at the Northern Baptist Seminary in Chicago.

In 1952 Paul married Elizabeth Leonovich and in 1953 they moved to Europe where they worked among Russian and Ukrainian refugees, who were temporarily living in most of the Western European countries. They have three sons and three daughters-in-law, seven grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.

Paul and Betty had an ongoing working relationship with Trans World Radio since 1960. While working with Trans World Radio in Monte Carlo, Paul held the following positions: East Europe Coordinator, Station Manager, Russian Department Director and TWR-CIS correspondent. Although they have lived most of their life in the West, Paul and Betty never stopped loving and serving their Slavic people.

This website is a library of Paul’s writings that include books, short stories, and quotes, which Paul likes to call, Soundbites. Most of his writings are written in English, but they also include writings in Russian and Ukrainian.

Paul was born in Malatyn, Ukraine (Poland at the time of his birth) on 17 March 1928, and went to be with the Lord in Lakewood, Colorado on 3 June, 2022. This library is an online presence of Paul’s material — an avenue to keep his work alive and accessible to others. 

I hope to have the satisfaction of seeing my material blessed of God in an extended way. And may the Lord be pleased because I am continuing to use the gifts he entrusted to me.
