Support our Poland Music Arts Trip

“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” –Isaiah 6:8

Did you know that all of Poland‘s 40,000 professing evangelical believers (approximately 1 out of 1,000) would fit into a large sports stadium?

On July 3-18 of this year, 10 ECC Worship Arts Team members will serve in Wisla, Poland, partnering with Korban and Tanya Miller.  Crazy as it sounds, Korban used to be the Worship Pastor at Blackhawk Baptist here in Fort Wayne!

 The Millers now serve with an organization called Josiah Venture.  The ECC team members are Dan, Shellie, Megan and Joseph Friend, Tim & Yvonne Yanes, David Dettweiler, Braydon Hathaway, Jessi Hott, and Brittany Blazier (from College Park, UB).

If you haven’t heard of Josiah Venture, here is a little about who they are what they do:

The world is changing, but the gospel remains the same.  Teams that come to Poland help with English and music camps.  These camps provide a relational environment where Polish teenagers hear the gospel, often for the first time.  Less than 1% of young people in Central and Eastern Europe are believers.  Teams have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with students that have probably had little or no contact with Christians, the Bible, or the truth of Jesus Christ.  Additionally, they give Poles an opportunity to speak English with native speakers through conversational English classes, playing sports, or music workshops . This is Josiah Venture-Poland. 

Please feel free to read more about this awesome organization on their website.

The ECC team will take part in a music camp offered to students called Fusion.  Dan Friend is leading the group and says,

We will be playing and singing songs that are popular to Polish teens to start the week.  One of those songs will be a worship song and one a Polish song. Each day, we will split up and teach approx. 25 students the instruments and vocals for each song.  As the week progresses, we will be sharing more worship songs with the students.  In the process, we will also have fun with the students, building relationships, and sharing the love of Jesus Christ.  I am really excited to see how God is leading the people of Josiah Venture and how God will move in the lives of these students!

The team would greatly cherish your prayer support in this mission trip and ministry.  

If you would like to support the team financially, your checks can be made out to Emmanuel Community Church.  (The names of team members cannot appear on the check. You may write Poland Music Trip or Josiah Venture in the memo).

We appreciate your prayer and support and we thank you for partnering with our Poland Music Arts team!
