We invite you be a part of the Discover Series, where you'll learn how to become a member of the Venture family, as well as move through a series of classes that will help develop you into a mature disciple of Christ.


Next Session: TBD

Discover Venture answers key questions about who we are, where we are going, why we exist… and how you can grow, serve and minister at Venture! If you desire to make Venture your home church, this is your opportunity to make a deeper commitment as a member. Discover Venture is a 2-week class that will go through the Catch the Vision curriculum in a facilitated small group format.



Next Class: TBD

Have you recently committed your life to Christ? Or are you a believer who has not yet been baptized by immersion? Take the next step and follow Jesus' example by being baptized here at Venture.

Water Baptism is an outward sign of what the Holy Spirit has performed in the heart of each believer. This class will explain what Baptism is, why we do it, how it is distinct from Christening or Infant Baptism, and what the requirements & procedures are for Baptism at Venture. At the end of the class, you will be able to decide if you wish to be baptized and we will assign a date & pastor to baptize you.

For more information, contact Roxanne Hopkins (408-997-4600) to confirm your attendance and to reserve childcare if needed.

Next Workshop: TBD

Discovering how God has designed and gifted you is essential for joy-filled ministry and service. Gain insight into your unique design as you look at and learn how to apply your top strengths and God-given spiritual gifts. This is primarily an online class, culminating in a workshop here at Venture (upon completing the online class you can sign up for the next workshop).



We believe every Christian is commanded to love God and each other. Our Discipleship Basics are foundational building blocks for the growth and maturity of every Christian. It's our desire that every Venture member go through these classes. These classes will be offered on both Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year.



Next Session: TBD

God is working out His redemptive story in your life. As a Christ follower, your story is a powerful tool in helping others encounter Jesus. Come to a six-week class where you will learn how to relate the “good news” to others. We’ll look at a number of approaches, and will wrestle with reasons why we don’t talk to others about Jesus. If you want to go “on mission” in your sphere of influence but don’t feel equipped, this class is for you.


Next Session: TBD

Are you a new believer or do you have questions regarding your faith? In this class we will discuss the major tenants of the Christian faith and how to live a life pleasing to God. Come join us for great discussion and an opportunity to meet others!

In this class we will explore the basic Bible study methods that will enable you to find your way around the Bible, read with understanding and interpret it with confidence. These simple concepts will transform your study and unlock the treasures in God’s Word.


Next Session: TBD

Explore the basics of prayer. Learn life transforming prayer skills based on Scripture. We will explore potential blocks to our connection with God and others. We teach prayer tools that enable you to live the abundant life and stay connected throughout your day regardless of the circumstances.
