Young people were the primary energy and momentum behind the revolutions that broke the power of communism in Eastern Europe in the late 80’s. But a revolution that changes the government cannot change the hearts of people. The work is only half done. Young people must be reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The energy of youth must be mobilized into a mighty force for the Kingdom of God. The potential is clear. Eastern Europe’s young people have already proven they can change the course of history. Now they must change the course of eternity.


Our Vision

This is the vision of Josiah Venture, a vision for a movement of God among the youth of Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society. Our mission and calling is to equip young leaders to fulfill Christ’s commission by reaching and making disciples. More than just conversion, we want to see passionate followers of Jesus Christ, with a vision to reach and disciple their generation for Him.

We are committed to doing this through local church bodies since the church is the bride of Christ, and we have a responsibility to present her as a radiant bride. We want to build ministries that grow through multiplication not just addition, as leaders make disciples who are capable of making disciples. We long to see ministries base not just their content, but their philosophy and strategy as well on the Word of God. We are convinced that personal transformation is the first responsibility of any leader, since the image of Christ cannot be seen until it is present.

We value the bold faith we see modeled in the book of Acts, a dynamic community that functions as the body of Christ, excellence that draws attention to God, the kind of integrity that permeates unseen corners, and the empowering of indigenous leaders to reach their own people.

Types of Ministry

  • Youth Ministry
  • Church Planting
  • Summer Camps

Our passion is to reach the youth of Central and Eastern Europe with the gospel, and we are looking for men and women whoa are ready to partner with us in this high calling.
We know this will be a rewarding experience and will cause you to grow in your faith like never before. In the past we have seen God greatly use summer interns in the lives of many Central and Eastern European youth and have seen His blessings on these summer camps.
Your contribution will be incredibly important. You are needed to promote the camps and lead activities (conversational English, evening programs, sports,group discussions, etc.), but mostly we need you to love the dear students that God will bring into your life.
So, be ready to serve, give, share the good news and pray.
We looking forward to serving the Master with you,
