You will be involved in facilitating evangelistic sports (mostly soccer) camps across central and eastern Europe. The camps are a great way to bring the gospel to youth in a relevant and fun environment. They are also significant for our local church based, year-round sports ministries.
At the camps you will lead drills and workshops, build relationships with non-Christian students, assist in leading evening programs consisting of music, 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 of national students and youth leaders. This is a high-energy ministry that requires a massive love for students!!!

$3,200 (includes training, administration, in-field travel, food, and lodging) plus airfare (approximately $1,400-1,600). You will additionally need to secure international health insurance coverage. 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 Josiah Venture 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. Costs differ, depending on your departure city. A visa is not required.
Basic overseas health insurance coverage will be provided by Josiah Venture for all US interns. An up-to-date tetanus shot is recommended.

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.
