Manifesto: Together We Are God Chasing
A manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer. So throughout this three week series we focus on why Venture Church strives to be God Chasing, Grace Shaped, Love Agents. We look to The Bible as always and see the clear principles on which Jesus taught and apply those to our church vision. This week as we kick it off we dive to an unordinary story of two kings and how their story unfolds of chasing God and not chasing God.

    Conversations With Jesus: Chase What Matters
    Venture had a guest speaker, Neal Alligood, come in and share a conversation we find in John chapter 6. A powerful conversation to say the least because Jesus feeds over 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread, 2 fish and his miraculous power. He takes what was given and multiplies it to feed 5000 people! Wow. This week Neal brings a hard driving question that we truly need to ask ourselves, "Are we chasing what really matters?" Jesus truly has the power and many times the things we seek lie about the power they have. Take time to listen up to the ending of Conversations with Jesus.

    Conversations With Jesus: Feed My Sheep
    99 percent of you listeners probably don't have sheep... and that's okay. As for the 1 percent, you rock. Now certainly the passage Chris is talking about this week is not referring to literal sheep. They need to be fed as well but this conversation we look at today will show some of Jesus' true character and great responses to questions. Check it out!

    Conversations With Jesus: How To Start A Conversation
    There are many conversations that we find with Jesus in the Bible, but this week we went over the thought of, how did those conversations get started? Not even how but why? Why did people even want to talk to Jesus? Patrick Harrison, our Youth Minister, talks about the importance of the content of the conversations had but also how they were started. We hope you enjoy!

    Conversations With Jesus: Empower The Diligent
    Conversations with Jesus didn't always happen when He was walking this earth. He indeed speak to people after he died, used His own power to rise from the grave, and then ascend into heaven. Yes, your eyes didn't deceive you. He did all those things. Not only was his death and resurrection important but one conversation he had with a bitter hearted man changed the history of the Church. We have record of that conversation and the revolution that sprouted from it. This week our very own Dylan Owney, a missionary through "Surfing The Nations," shares this conversation and the importance of the dialogue. You can see more of the mission of STN while also supporting him in sharing the light of Jesus here... https://surfingthenations.dntly.com/fundraiser/3684#/donate We hope you enjoy.

    Conversations With Jesus: Nicodemus
    Real talk. Jesus was a real man but also a real God at the same time. He came to this earth to live life among His creation and we have reliable record of His conversations with people. During this series we are going to take six weeks to look at six conversations during the life of Jesus. This week we get a birds eye view of a conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus. With an answer to the question "What does it mean to be 'born again'?" you don't want to miss out on why this conversation is important!

    wisdom: From Smart Mouth to Wise Mouth
    Our mouths have more power than we give them credit. Generally we accept the fact that we can't unsay our words, but why do we continue to be okay with slander, gossip, and lying? Why do we allow our words to come out the way they do? Well, out of the heart, the mouth speaks. This week we learn about why Solomon wrote 1/6th of the book of proverbs all about watching what we say. So join in with us to become a generation that seeks wise words from a pure heart than easy words from a burdened heart.

    wisdom: It Doesn’t Just Happen
    When learning about what true wisdom is and how to apply wisdom we also have to talk about how to gain wisdom. This week's title nails it on the head, "It Doesn't Just Happen." When it comes to wisdom there needs to be action not only to apply what we've learned but to seek wisdom in the right places. This week our youth minister, Patrick Harrison, shares not only his take on how to seek wisdom but we also see in the book of Proverbs how.

    wisdom: The One About Sex
    When talking about wisdom, there are areas of life that cannot be brushed under the rug. Oh wait, that's what our society has done for years now on the topic of sex. Yes you heard it right. The only truthful place to learn about this topic is from the wisdom of the bible. This week we learn about how to overcome temptations. Not only sexual temptations but this message can be painted with broader strokes towards your own struggles. Join in listening this week to why our whole population on this earth needs to know what is really going on behind the scenes when we give into temptation. Jesus is greater.
