Alabama pastor returns to US after evacuating Ukraine

WINFIELD, Ala. (WIAT) – An Alabama pastor who was helping churches in Ukraine is now returning to the United States after being evacuated amid the Russian invasion.

Mark Posey, pastor at Winfield Church of Christ, was on a mission trip when the Russian invasion began. He was able to travel to Poland over the weekend and on Monday he flew to Miami.

Posey was scheduled to arrive late Monday evening, but his family said he may not return to Alabama until Tuesday due to a flight delay.

At around 5.15pm on Tuesday evening, Posey arrived at Birmingham Airport and was greeted by family and friends.

Posey has served as a pastor at Winfield Church of Christ since 2018, but has traveled back and forth from Alabama to Ukraine and parts of Poland for more than 30 years to help establish churches.
