Teams that come to Central and Eastern Europe help with English, music, and sports camps. These camps provide a relational environment where Central and Eastern European teenagers hear the gospel, often for the first time. Less than 1% of young people in Central and Eastern Europe are believers. You will have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with students that have probably had little or not contact with Christians, the Bible, or the truth of Jesus Christ.
You will partner with a national youth group to put on a camp that empowers them to share the gospel with their friends and students from their city. Your team will model relational evangelism. Additionally, you will give Europeans an opportunity to speak English with native speakers through conversational English classes, playing sports, or music workshops.
We need short-term teams from North America and the UK, so we can continue to do camps throughout Central and Eastern Europe. We want more and more young people in this part of world to follow Jesus and youth ministries to become out reach focused with a passion to reach their non-Christian peers for Christ. Please consider joining the work God is doing in this region.
As a summer intern you would partner with national church youth groups to lead evangelistic English, sport, and/or music camps for Central and Eastern European young people. You would be responsible for teaching, building relationships with students, following up with those students, and facilitating a variety of training activities related to youth ministry. You would serve on a team of four to eight interns under the leadership of an experienced JV staf f member.. Prior to the start of camps, these teams undergo a week of intensive training in Europe. At the end of the summer, they debrief with a time of testimonies and reflection. Interns are required to raise their support as faith missionaries.
