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 programs and discipleship.
You will be involved in leading evangelistic English camps for high school and university-age students. The English 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, as well as visiting schools and traveling to different youth groups to promote and prepare for English camps and participate in a variety of youth ministry activities. At the camps you will teach conversational English, 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 you partner with.
You will experience a balance of evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training of national students and youth leaders. 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!

As a result, interns are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to departure from their home country. An up-to-date tetanus shot is also recommended. Basic overseas health insurance coverage will be provided by Josiah Venture for all US interns.
