Estonia gained its independence miraculously, but 99% of the nation is still in need to gain spiritual freedom and this can start with the young people.
Josiah Venture in Estonia (locally called “Koma”) is investing in the next generation of leaders in the local churches. Interns play a great role in working together with local churches reaching out to the youth– - especially during the summer as Koma carries out is carrying out a lot of programs and discipleship.
You will be involved in leading evangelistic Edge Sports Camps (soccer, disc golf, and crossfit) for high school students. These sports camps are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to young people in a relevant and relaxed environment.
During the first month you will be involved in a week of training and visiting schools and youth groups to promote the camps and participate in a variety of youth ministry related activities. At the camps, you will teach and play sports, build relationships with non-Christian campers, assist in leading evening programs consisting of games, testimonies, Bible stories and encourage youth leaders in the local churches you partner with.
You will experience a balance of evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training. This is a high-energy ministry that requires a great love for students. Be prepared for a very busy and stretching schedule that will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
