Ukraine Summer Outreach

The ongoing war in Ukraine has deeply impacted the young generation, as many Fathers are fighting on the front lines, and regular air raid sirens send families into the basements for protection. Over 8 million people are internally displaced and 7 million have fled to surrounding countries as refugees.

This summer, the Josiah Venture team is working to reach these Ukrainian young people through summer camps and outreach events. We are providing full scholarships for 2,000 young people to attend week-long camps, both in Ukraine and in the surrounding countries. In addition, we are initiating over 50 creative outreach events in 15 countries, with a goal of reaching another 2,000-3,000 young refugees with the good news of Jesus.

This is a unique opportunity to bring spiritual care to hurting Ukrainian young people. Would you consider giving a gift to help us cover the cost of outreach events or help us provide scholarships for Ukrainians to attend these strategic camps? Your donation today to our Ukraine Summer Outreach fund will directly support this effort.

Ukraine Crisis - General Fund

Josiah Venture is responding to the urgent crisis in Ukraine in two ways: by supporting the work of our team and local churches on the ground inside Ukraine and by assisting Ukrainian refugees as they move into neighboring countries.

Most of our JV Ukrainian national missionaries are currently staying in Ukraine to serve those around them. They are coordinating with churches inside Ukraine to provide desperately needed shelter, food, evacuation, medical supplies, personal care, spiritual encouragement, Bibles, and the hope-filled message of the gospel during this crisis. Some of our missionaries have even been put in charge of city-wide operations for emergency aid, shelter, and refugee care.

Our JV staff in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, and Hungary are assisting refugees coming across the Ukrainian border. We are prepared to provide full-scale accommodations for up to 400 refugees in and around our training centers in the coming weeks, as well as help them flow through to local churches for long-term care. Most of these refugees are women and children, many of whom had to leave their husbands in Ukraine since they are required to stay and defend the country.

Our team is making sure they have food, clothing, personal items, supplies for small infants and children, personal counseling, Ukrainian-language Bibles, and many other practical and spiritual needs.

We are supporting them throughout this crisis and preparing up a long-term program for providing assistance afterward. Your donations to our Ukraine Crisis Fund will directly support this effort.
