Albania Camps Ministry

Using conversational English as the connection point, English Camps help unbelievers connect to the local church. Along with facilitating these camps, the team also trains and develops young leaders to serve as interns in these camps and in their local churches back home.

Dick Patty Memorial Fund

Dick Patty is a missionary pioneer and the father of Dave Patty, the founder of Josiah Venture. He was called home to heaven on July 14, 2021 at 95 years of age. This fund was created to honor his life and passion for advancing the gospel around the world.

Any gifts given to this fund will be used to purchase land for a youth camp in Albania where his grandson, Caleb, serves. Under communism, Albania was one of the most atheistic countries in the world; the church there is small but growing. This land in the mountains near the coast in Albania will be used to reach young people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Albania Youth Ministry Van

We started the Albania ministry only a few years back. Now, the Albania team is solid with growing camp and EDGE ministries. They are at a phase where they can utilize a 9-seater van for their EDGE tournaments, trainings, and summer camps. The van would not only help to transport EDGE teams and camp equipment but also would allow for the JV leaders to take more young people on trips to do on-the-road discipleship as they travel around the country training local churches.

The total budget for the van is $19,000.
