The History of Project 29:11

Project 29:11 is one of the programs operating within Josiah Venture. The vision of Josiah Venture is:

“To see a movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society”.

Who is Founder of Project 29:11? 

The main founder of Project 29:11 is Iwona Eifling.

The experiences of her life have awakened in her a great desire to help the wounded young generation find healing. She deepened her knowledge and desire by studying at Denver Seminary in Colorado, USA, where in 2001 she obtained an MA in Christian Counseling.

From beginning
to now


Project 29:11 started in 2008 with small groups for teenagers who had experienced their parents’ divorce. Iwona has been offering these weekend experiences all over Poland for 4 years.


God chose to stop Iwona and say: “It is time to broaden the platform. There are many other young people experiencing tremendous pain other than divorce. They need my healing too.” After a year of prayer and seeking God, He gave the vision for a new stage of Project 29:11 – Reveal, Restore, and Refine.

One of the first events that was born out of this new vision was a weekend conference called “Escape – From Pain to Hope”


2018 was a year of multiplication. This year we saw:

REVEAL | 4 Escape weekends in 4 different regions of Poland.
RESTORE | Creating and implementing a strategy for helping local churches be places of care for the broken.
REFINE | Strong focus on training leaders.


Time of prayer, purifying, training, and preparing.

Scripture that God gave for this season was Isaiah 43:19: „See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”



Our weekends Escape – From Pain to Hope from its genesis in 2013, through this last year of 2020, have helped us reach over 1,300 young girls from all over Poland! Starting in 2020, young men will join the fruit through X Ray and 29:11 ER.

God has been faithful in transforming the lives of people all across Poland through our different ministries. Many individuals and churches have been moved by Him to be part of this movement of bringing healing to the brokenness of the next generation.
