You will be involved in leading evangelistic sports camps for high school students. These sports camps are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to the youth 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 music, drama, games, and testimonies, and encourage youth leaders in the local churches where you will partner.
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!

$3,200 (includes training, administration, in-field travel, food, and lodging) plus airfare ($1300-1600). You will also have the opportunity to raise an additional $2500 towards a stipend, which will be paid to you after the completion of the internship.
The support raising deadline is May 1. Once a $100 deposit is received, the JV office will open an account and the intern will receive a username and password to access their account online. The account will be updated once a week. These donations are tax deductible and should be made payable and mailed to the JV office. Donations made payable to JV cannot be transferred to the ministry of another organization or used for educational purposes, nor can they be returned to the donor.
International flights will be arranged through Josiah Venture after the first $500 of support is raised by the intern.
Basic overseas health insurance coverage will be provided by Josiah Venture for all US interns. An up-to-date tetanus shot is recommended.
The summer begins with a week of training in the Czech Republic. You will then be located at Josiah Venture camps throughout Estonia.
Cars, trains, trams, buses, walking, etc.
The $100 deposit will be refunded (application fee is non-refundable) if the JV office is notified before March 1. If withdrawal is made on or after March 2, the deposit will not be refunded. 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.
