All of Poland‘s 40,000 professing evangelical believers (approximately 1 out of 1,000 of Poland’s population) would fit into a large sports stadium. As a majority-Catholic culture, many Poles view protestant denominations as strange sects.
Fala, Josiah Venture in Poland, has a strong history of partnering with local churches to equip young leaders and to organize evangelistic camps. As well as that, we continue to innovate and explore new possibilities of reaching young people with the hope of the gospel.
The summer is a crucial time for interns to work alongside JV missionaries and local churches to prepare and run evangelistic summer camps. As a result, Polish youth leaders are equipped for ministry and through relational evangelism young people are challenged to become disciples of Jesus.
Poland’s summer internship is for people who have a passion for Jesus and want to share him with the young generation of Poles. 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 Christian love for students. Be prepared for a very busy and stretching schedule that will be one of the most rewarding experiences in your lifetime!
