Team Praha is working on-site with Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Farnik, missionaries with over 27 years of experience in the Czech Republic, who will serve as their guides and translators for Czech culture and language.
The 3-week long ministry includes a VBS for children; an adult course taught by Rev. George Scipione; a Czech "Mountain Adventure" hiking trip focusing on friendship evangelism and discipleship with Christian and non-Christian Czech teens and young adults; and neighborhood outreach to children ("Ready, Set, Go" camp), teens and young adults in Praque, where the Farniks are seeking to plant a church.
