About Josiah Venture

Josiah Venture is part of a movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society. Our mission is to equip young leaders to fulfill Christ’s commission through the local church.

Over 25 years after communism, the Evangelical Church is still small and fractured. In our region, there are 32.5 million young people ages 15-28. Yet less than 1% of these young people in Central and Eastern Europe are believers. We serve in 14 countries: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine.

You will have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with students who have probably had very little contact with Christians.


Missions Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Leipzig, Saxony
“I loved getting to build relationships everywhere I went. This helped me in every aspect of my internship.”

Mission Intern Team Leader

May 2019 - August 2019 Limbaži, Limbaži Municipality
“I loved the opportunity to take on a more serious leadership role in mission work. I spent three months living and serving in Latvia, and although ministry there is not new to me (it was my fifth consecutive summer serving there), my particular role this summer was new and involved a lot more responsibility. Being responsible for a team of five college-age interns for three months in a foreign country is daunting no matter how you slice it, and being an administrator for multiple youth camps that brought together workers from around the world is a task I wouldn't have thought myself qualified for. I loved that this summer both showed me that I am more equipped and prepared for the kind of work that I love than I would have expected, and taught me to rely on God in my weakness and not to imagine that it is by my own great abilities that I am able to lead others. Essentially, this summer taught me more about leadership than the rest of my life combined.”
