Czech Republic Partnership
Although Czech Republic has a rich Christian history, years of communist rule has led to the this country being the most atheistic in the world. Most historic churches are now museums and the few churches that remain are small and often struggling with Evangelical believers making up a very small portion of the population.

Josiah Venture (JV) is a large multi-national ministry with it's base in Czech Republic. JV is led by Dave Patty, an American with a long history of ministry within Europe.

This ministry is large in scope and far-reaching in their vision. Evangelism in the form of small groups, English camps and music clubs are main stays of the ministry. (http://www.josiahventure.com/)

A Portland, Oregon native and reluctantly recovering hipster, Jered received a masters degree from Western Seminary and planted a church in the City of Roses for the last ten years. Being middle-aged it may seem as though several years are unaccounted for in his narrative, but they were mostly spent being a youth pastor, associate pastor, enjoying being married to his favorite person and raising three beautiful girls. He doesn't get what the big deal is about Portillos, but has acquired a taste for deep dish pizza, loves the church and loves motivating people to live transformed lives in Jesus.
