join the movement
18 years ago I would never have imagined leaving corporate America to equip the 1% in Slovakia to fulfill Christ's commission through the local church. Yet, today, God continues to call me to be part of his movement through Josiah Venture as the director of operations to equip our staff to reach the 99% for Jesus. And, make disciples along the way.
JV is a part of a movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society. There are 32.5 million young people in this region with less than 1% who have a personal relationship with Jesus. And, more than likely, they are first-generation Christians due to the affects socialism & communism had on their families - former genarations.
I believe God commands us all to love Him, and love others. And, calls us to make disciples looking to Jesus as our example. To help me equip our staff to make disciples on your behalf, will you join me through your prayers, encouragements and/or financial support?
I began serving with Josiah Venture in 2003. During my first short-term trip in the summer of 2001, I fell in love with Slovakia, the culture and its people. I left corporate America to work with the local churches and youth of Slovakia. Those first 10 years, working alongside our leadership team, we developed a model youth ministry, and was involved in several ongoing evangelistic movements throughout the country. I also served on JV's member care team by providing support and communication resources for our staff. The next six years, I mobilized others to serve alongside our ministry within our three JV mobilizing organizations. Today, I am living in Slovakia, where I am serving, empowering and equipping our Josiah Venture’s staff for ministry as the Director of Operations on JV’s International team.
