Ema has been serving in the local church in Zagreb, Croatia as a youth leader for over a decade now. She first heard of JV and their ministry in Central and Eastern Europe at an English camp in 2006 and she was captured by their vision for young people. She didn’t know how God was going to work things out, but somehow God used her experience as a high school teacher, and her passion for investing in a new generation of young believers and brought it all together. It has been a burning desire for her to see many desperately lost young people come to Christ, find their hope in forgiveness and new life in Jesus, restore the face of the church in Zagreb, build God’s Kingdom is Croatia, and glorify God with all that he has given her. It is her vision to see young believers being discipled and then actively involved in spreading the gospel and building his Kingdom. She is going be joining the JV team in Croatia after she graduates from Southwestern with her Masters in Theological Studies, and she will continue working in the local church and developing Exit Tour in Croatia.
