Josiah Venture has grown from three couples in 1993 to over 190 staff today.


In the Gospels we see this process of discipleship modeled in the way Christ challenged his followers from their initial positions of unbelief to a point of spiritual maturity and fruitfulness.



A movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society.



The sweeping changes that followed the removal of the Berlin Wall in 1989 opened new doors of ministry to Central and Eastern Europe as the region became accessible for summer missions projects.



Josiah Venture has grown from three couples in 1993 to over 300 staff today. Located in 14 countries in Europe, along with a support team in America, over half of our staff are nationals.


I have had the privilege of working with Josiah Venture in Romania and have always left so encouraged by their heart for youth. Josiah Venture is boldly standing on the front lines of ministry in a spiritually dark place and seeing lives transformed.
