New to venture?
A note from our pastor
If you are just getting to know VENTURE or you’ve been around here a long time, we’re glad to have you visit our website…we started it with you in mind. VENTURE’s primary emphasis is on our relationship with God and our helping more people get to know Jesus and live like him every day. In addition, we are blessed with the opportunity to get to know, love, and connect with new friends.
One of our primary goals is to extend the opportunity for these types of relationships to as many people as possible. That’s why we would be delighted to have you join with us whenever possible. There is a place for you at VENTURE Christian Church. Please accept this invitation to worship with us and consider making VENTURE your church home.
In January, Pastor Mark announced that he will retire in August, 2019 after 36 years in the ministry as a Lead Pastor. Our church and community will be forever grateful for Mark’s heart and passion for the lost, as he and his wife, Sarah have enriched so many lives within our local ministries and far beyond these walls. We know that our Father has great plans for Venture and the Wright family. Click the link below to read the announcement letter from Pastor Mark & Sarah.
Update: Venture Christian Church has announced that Stan Killebrew will be our next Leader Pastor, ensuring a smooth transition between Mark and Stan.

Pizza With The Pastor
If you are a new attender, we would love to have a slice of pizza with you at Pizza With The Pastor. This typically is a once a month gathering for new visitors to meet our senior pastor, get to know others that are new to the church, and learn more about the Venture family and how to get connected. We’d love to meet you at our next PWP!
Journey to Membership
This three-week class is for anyone wanting to take their next steps into church membership with us. We believe that fully investing yourself into a body of believers is what we are called to as a church. In these three weeks, you’ll learn about the foundation of the Christian faith, learn about our mission and vision, and figure out where you can best serve in the Venture body.
We truly believe that baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision. Whether it was Paul who went from being Saul, the persecutor of Christians, to Paul, the proclaimer of Christ or even Jesus, as he went from being a carpenter to embarking on his Messiahship…baptism was the sign of new life and new beginnings for each of them.
