Monthly Ministry Visits to Far-Eastern Ukraine
JV is partnering with a team of local Christians in bold faith to equip existing churches and to start new ones that are willing to work with the next generation in this difficult place. The JV team is taking monthly trips across the country to the areas that border the war line between Ukraine and Russia in order to bring encouragement, training, and supplies for youth leader and church development.

Reproducing Churches Conferences with M4 - Ukraine
This donation will go toward the cost of a sound system and projector needed for M4 Church Planting trainings. This will include 2 speakers, stands, microphones, cords, and the projector. The amount needed is $2,000.
MORE ABOUT M4: M4 is church planting training unique to the European context. Participants in their leadership teams will go through 5 modules (M0 through M4) to be trained in this God-honoring church planting training that is making a difference across Europe. Josiah Venture Ukraine is working in partnership with M4 and a Ukrainian seminary in the hopes to see healthy church models started and multiplied. In 2019 we helped 9 teams start new churches; in 2020 eleven more new churches have signed up. In addition to training, these leadership teams will receive mentoring and personal visits from JV Ukraine's Reproducing Churches team for ongoing support and encouragement.
Youth Ministry Training in War-Torn Eastern Ukraine
This project will support the shared training projects Josiah Venture Ukraine is launching in Eastern Ukraine. The purpose of these trainings is to join like-minded church leaders who are thinking about church planting, healthy churches, youth ministry, and the unique context of Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine suffering from the Russian occupation of the far eastern parts of Ukraine.
