The mission of Josiah Venture is to be a movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society.
In Croatia specifically, out of 4.5 million people, less than 0.5% identify themselves as evangelical believers. The majority of those believers come from Baptist, Pentecostal and similar backgrounds. Both communist and Catholic environments have pressed the evangelical church to turn inward thus weakening its ability to lead spiritual transformation in the country.
In light of the small number of believers, Josiah Venture's primary focus in Croatia is evangelism and discipleship of youth. They partner with local evangelical churches to equip and develop young people in their faith.
Their prayer is to see the existing churches revived and new churches planted through the infusion of young believers and reproducible youth ministries. New forms of church could bridge the gap between young people disillusioned with traditional religion, yet hungry for something real and genuine in their lives.
This trip is a highly relational trip to engage with high school students in Croatia. We will be assisting with various aspects of an English camp, but the main focus is evangelism and discipleship.
