Maybe when you were growing up you dreamt of changing the world. You dreamt of having great influence or even power. You wanted to travel and explore like the earliest pioneers; to see new lands and meet new people.
We are praying for a movement of God among the young people here in western Hungary that will spread through and beyond its borders! Here in Hungary, you would join a pioneering effort as God is moving through His church. Your childhood dreams of changing the world can start here in Hungary. We would love to partner with you!
This internship will immerse you in a culture very different from your own with a people who desperately need to hear from a God who loves them and redeems their lives. Romans 8:11 says “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you!” What greater power is there? In this internship you will see lives changed because of the Gospel and one of those lives will be your own. It starts with stepping out in bold faith and join God’s plan for the summer.
You’ll be located with us in Veszprém, Hungary, about 15 minutes from Lake Balaton. Veszprém is a city of 65,000 people with only two small evangelical churches. Plan on three summer camps experiences (English, Adventure, Soccer), weekend excursions/retreats, connecting with students at their strategic places (school, sports, coffee shops, city gathering places), and investing deeply in the local church.
We live and minister together as a team, so this is a high-community, high-impact summer. Join us!

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.
