Mel & Amy Ellenwood

Hannah & Joseph, Hayley & Austin, Noah & Jill

Mel and Amy, along with their three children Hannah, Hayley, and Noah, have been serving with Josiah Venture in the Czech Republic since February 1998. During the 12 years they spent working in stateside youth ministry, their hearts were continually challenged by the need they saw worldwide to reach and train the next generation. During a brief trip to visit the ministry of Josiah Venture, their hearts were captured by the innocent honesty they saw in students they met. They were deeply inspired by JV’s vision to work through the local church and disciple young leaders who would transform their countries. After serving locally in the Czech Republic to develop a model youth ministry, they helped to grow JV’s English camp ministry. Today, Mel is the Executive Vice President of Josiah Venture. In this role, he leads the Barnabas team which serves the entire JV family by providing access to care, support, and resources. Amy works alongside Mel, disciples young female leaders, teaches and speaks, and works with the women's and Third Culture Kid ministry. They live in Frydek-Mistek, not far from Josiah Venture headquarters, where they are also involved in building up their local church.
