A variety of resources are available in times of crisis. As you walk through difficult seasons of life, you will find care and prayer to meet your needs.



There is tremendous power in prayer. We all find ourselves in moments of crisis when we need others to join us on our knees before God. We welcome your prayer requests.

Pastoral Care



Marriage is a God-ordained institution, and a covenant commitment reflecting God’s unconditional faithfulness to mankind throughout all ages. We believe that marriage is for one man and one woman for an entire lifetime. As we help you enter into the oneness of marriage, we require pre-marital counseling for anyone married by a Venture pastor. This can be accomplished by attending one of the three Engaged Couples Seminars offered each year or by making special arrangements with the officiating pastor. Due to space and schedule limitations, we can only perform weddings for members of our church community.

It’s our desire to provide assistance to church families during their time of loss. Members have the option of using our facility to hold a memorial service for their loved one, subject to room availability. We charge a small facility usage fee to cover custodial, utilities and A/V expenses.
