Adult Ministries


“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.” Acts 2:42

The Adult Small Groups Ministry offers dozens of small groups that meet in homes and other locations all over Hamilton County. Groups typically are gatherings of 8-12 people that meet to build friendships, discuss the Bible, pray, and serve together. The groups typically meet two to four times a month. For more info, please contact Jon Vance at

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach…one another with all wisdom.” (Colossians 3:16)

The goal of the Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) ministry at Venture is to help men and women experience God’s transforming power by equipping them with a solid understanding of God’s Word. You can experience real life-change in one of our Sunday Bible study communities. In an ABF, you will not only learn the Bible, but also live it out with other like-minded people.

If you are ready to experience God’s life-changing power, check out the communities that meet every Sunday morning during one of our service times. For more info, contact Discipleship Pastor David Smith (
