This internship is for those of you who like the front lines. It’s for those who want to be a part of starting something new. We are looking for people who are highly relational, evangelistic, passionate and willing to do whatever is needed. Croatia is a nation that needs the gospel and there are young people who need the hope of Jesus Christ.
We have just begun to launch a ministry in Split, Croatia which means you will be a part of helping us grow and shape the ministry. In the process you will develop leadership skills, sharpen your evangelistic ability, and observe how overseas ministry functions. The great thing about a new ministry is that things can change at any moment and you’ll learn to adapt on the fly.
You’ll be based with us in Split, Croatia for the duration of your internship. It is a town of 300,000 people and grows even larger during the summer months. As a part of the local church you’ll help with camps, events, and disciple making. This is a chance to make an impact in a church that could have ripple effects throughout the city and country.

Regardless of the withdrawal date, the intern is responsible (through donations received or personally) for any airfare cost already incurred by JV for the internship. All these donations will remain with Josiah Venture.
