Slovakia

General Description

Slovakia’s religious climate has a long history of emphasizing what a person does for God rather than who a person is to God, and less than 0.2% of people are involved in modern evangelical churches across the country.

Training Center Kompas, Josiah Venture’s national organization in Slovakia, exists to train, equip, and inspire the next generation of Slovak leaders as they forge a new path of grace for the youth following behind them. 

When interns serve in Slovakia, they are not only serving the youth of Slovakia but also serving local ministry leaders in local churches. Interns encourage leaders while helping promote, prepare, and lead evangelistic English, sports, and music camps. 

If you have a passion for sharing Christ through evangelism and relational discipleship, and if you desire to grow and be stretched in your own walk with Christ, then come to Slovakia! Be prepared to be faithful, adaptable, and teachable throughout the summer as you experience the life-changing rewards of cross-cultural ministry.
