At Venture Church, we believe in creating ways to gather people together and grow them in a relationship with God and with others.

Community at Venture is primarily built through
Groups, Next Conversation Gatherings, and Events.
We are convinced we really are better together.


Groups are small groups of people meeting in and around Venture all year long.
Along with our weekend services, groups are the core of our ministry.
Venture uses 4 classifications of groups, the descriptions below should help you choose the right group for you. Through groups, we hope you will grow in relationship with God and with others with our end goal of developing lifelong followers of Jesus.

community groups:

Groups in this category are primarily focused on friendships developed in shared activities.

focus groups:

What's next groups:

Groups in this category are primarily focused on fundamentals; the foundational beliefs and practices of Christian faith.
Be sure to visit  the What's Next page of the app for new content  & resources  each week.

discipleship groups:

Groups in this category are primarily focused on framework: building faith on the solid foundation built in our What's Next groups.
Deeper Focus groups are aimed at digging deeper into any topic of life or faith to build something lasting.
Groups in this category are primarily focused on developing and deploying life-long followers of Jesus. These groups are usually a greater time commitment & include deep relationships, a firm grasp on the entire story arc of the Bible and intentional practices of faith that deploy believers to lead others to this same intentionality of growth in faith.

Next Conversation Gatherings

Another way we gather people together to grow, outside of traditional groups, is through podcast-style conversations. Our Next Conversation podcasts are filmed approximately once per month with a live audience that engages in the conversation topic.  These tackle a variety of spiritual, biblical, and culturally relevant subjects while targeting honest discussion and difficult questions.
Check the events tab to be part of the conversation live or click below to listen to a recent Next Conversation  podcast.

A large part of connecting people to people begins with gathering them together. Fun events give us a simple way to gather people into groups that are smaller than our weekly services and allow them to begin to connect to each other. Events cross all lines from gender to age to season of life, and are regularly advertised across all of our social media platforms.
