What’s it all about?

Finding a local church:

We know how hard it is to keep a strong spiritual foundation while away at college. We believe that the best answer to this is the local church. There are countless on campus ministry organizations that can help and we’re a huge can of them but nothing quite replaces the power of finding an anchor in a local church. 
And we really don’t care if you attend Venture Church on Sundays! Our bigger goal is that you get plugged in SOMEWHERE. So, if Venture isn’t the fit for you, we want to help you find a local church that is.

Discovering Family:

The Church is a family. Venture schedules time each month for college students to hang out at the home of a local family. The family provides free food and the students get to build friendships with them. What better, while you’re living away from home, than to discover a Mother/Father-figure, a surrogate grandparent, or to meet younger kids to influence! This is family. This is Church. 
  • Need help working on your car?
  • Need directions to local store?
  • Looking for leads on weekend job?
  • Just need a safe place to hang out on a weekend? 
  • It’s so nice to have local church family!

Serving Together:

Part of finding an anchor in the local church is the built in opportunities to serve both on a Sunday morning volunteer team AND in the various outreach projects in the city. 

Home away from home:

College can be a lonely time of “finding yourself” why not make a home with the local church!
