The Wicks: Chris and Ashley,
Tahlia, Mikaela, Braden, Karsten
Chris and Ashley Wick serve with Josiah Venture in Slovenia and have been supported by Scenic Park Bible Church beginning in 2012. Chris is the grandson of Mel and Evelyn Wick, charter members of SPBC, and Ashley is the daughter of Hal and Donna Lawson, who were SPBC members from 1996 to 2003.
Chris and Ashley met at The Master’s College in Los Angeles, California and they were married after graduation in 1999. Their four children are Tahlia (2004), Mikaela (2006), and twins Braden and Karsten (2009).
Josiah Venture’s vision is to see a movement of God among the youth of Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society. The Wick family is focused on discipling next-generation youth in Radovljica, Slovenia. They desire to see the next generation equipped to fulfill Christ’s commission – disciples making disciples! They are partnered with indigenous church planters, Sebastian and Gloria Forjan, who have planted a church in a region of Slovenia that had not seen a Gospel presence in over four hundred years.
The Wick family is involved in this church plant by ministering in many different settings which include: junior/senior-high school youth ministry, Bible studies, discipleship, preaching, summer camp programs, and leadership development initiatives and support.
Pray that the family will draw their daily strength from the Lord and not rely on self. Pray that the young people they minister amongst would have a passion for God's Word and God's ways. Pray for further Gospel opportunities with next-generation students. Pray for continued language acquisition. Pray for Tahlia, Mikaela, Braden, and Karsten as they study in the public school system, and pray that they will be bold lights of truth amongst their classmates. Pray that God will open up doors into marketplace and government enviroments in the years to come. Pray that the Wicks will have humility, courage, integrity, love, and faithfulness to God's Word!
