Groups

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

To accomplish this goal, we offer Groups, Intensives, and Events, because we are convinced we really are better together.

Groups

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.

Deeper focus groups:

What's next groups:

Groups in this category are primarily focused on fundamentals; the foundational beliefs and practices of Christian faith.

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.

Intensives

We understand that groups don’t work in every person's schedule in every season of life so we provide an alternative way to help grow and connect people-to-people through intensives. The subject matter of the intensives we offer is limitless (worship, anxiety, conflict resolution, finances, blended families, adoption, suicide prevention, grief, and any topic in the Bible or book of the Bible). These are open and advertised to our church and our community.  Depending on the type of content we will offer one of the following types of intensives:

Half-Day Intensives

(e.g. a Saturday morning overview of the book of John)

One-Day Intensives

(e.g. a full day training on leadership, financial planning or parenting how-tos)

Two-Day Intensives

(e.g. a two-day marriage intensive)

Events

"i'm so glad i met you."

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.
