Over the past year I have felt ready to jump on board with Josiah Venture but after being here these past few days...
I can confidently say, “I can’t wait to get to Croatia and see what God is going to do!”
I arrived here in Czech Republic on Saturday evening and immediately jumped into a couple days of meetings with the JV Council. No time for jet lag recovery or naps, it was go time. Here is a little snippet of my travels.
What is JV Council? It’s a collection of thirteen leaders, each representing a country that Josiah Venture is working in. They work to determine how the mission and vision of Josiah Venture is practically carried out in each country. It was both amazing and overwhelming to watch this group made up of national and North American country leaders discuss and pray about the work that God is doing in Central and Eastern Europe. It is a high privilege to be among this group of leaders. There are decades of ministry experience and wisdom.
As I sat and listened to everything I caught myself thinking, “What am I doing here?"
That's a good thing, because this is so much bigger than me and my vision. The God things always are. It is a reminder to keep my eyes on Jesus and follow his lead. We can't change a city, a region, or a country. But God can, and he is.
Josiah Venture is about seeing a movement of God in Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society. And that’s exactly what’s happening.
As I write this hundreds of missionaries are arriving here in Czech to attend Josiah Venture's fall conference this week. People who have been impacted by the gospel and are now serving in their own countries to reach others.
Disciples making disciples!
It's an honor to be able to move over to Croatia and assist the local church in reaching out to young people. But also to be a part of something much bigger, a movement of God amongst the youth of Central and Eastern Europe.
