Germany

General Description

Former East Germany is one of the most atheistic regions in the world, and less than one percent of people here have a personal relationship with Jesus.

Josiah Venture in Germany works year-round with several local churches and their youth groups in order to reach young people with the gospel. One of the key ways we connect new students to these youth groups is through English camps in the summer.

Josiah Venture interns in Germany can expect their main focus to be helping support local youth groups, largely through helping facilitate summer English camps. After an initial week of training, interns will spend the first month of their internship connecting with different youth groups and promoting and preparing for camps. The rest of the internship consists of several English camps and follow-up events where interns are expected to help with everything from training Mission teams, to leading games and discussion groups, to teaching English.

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.
