Team Size: 4 participants
The Mennonite churches of Indonesia invite you to the island of Java for service, worship and discipleship while exploring the diversity of a nation with over 17,000 islands. Youth Venture team will experience Jakarta, the capital city, and engage with the ministries of a number of Mennonite churches across Indonesia. The team will help with the ministries of these churches, tutoring in a school for the blind, teaching in a preschool, playing soccer and other games with children, and helping to teach English.
We look forward to youth from North America and Indonesia coming together exploring rain forests and bustling cities, studying the Bible and sharing their faith, serving in the ministries of local churches, and enjoying amazing food and hospitality. Your service will likely include tutoring in after-school programs, playing soccer and other games with children, and helping to teach English. There may also be some physical work supporting Mennonite Diakonal Service responding to disasters and preserving the environment.
Travel to location
You will meet your team for orientation in a major U.S. city (yet to be determined). You will need to make your own travel arrangements to the departure city. Details will be forthcoming. Youth Venture will make your travel arrangements from the United States to Indonesia.
If you do not have a passport, you can download an application at www.travel.state.gov/passport/forms.html. Please allow ample time for passport processing.
Youth Venture is asking each participant to raise $2,300 USD to help cover team expenses. This amount covers the cost of orientation, travel to the assignment, in-country travel, lodging and food. Participants will need additional funds to cover their health insurance, immunizations, passport, and travel to orientation. Expected contribution is subject to change in the event of significant airline price increases. All gifts are non-refundable and will be used to fund the Youth Venture team ministry in Indonesia regardless of individual fundraising goals.
