Everyone experiences times of struggle in life and a need for support. At Venture, our Care Ministry teams are here to come alongside you. From encouragement and conversation, to help around the home or a hospital visit, to financial support or someone to pray with you, we’re here to help… We want you to know that you are not alone.

Support & Recovery Groups

Warrior Men

If you are a man that is struggling with pornography or other sexual addiction issues, you are not alone. The Warrior Movement at Venture comes alongside men that are not experiencing God’s best for their lives and provides encouragement and support toward victory over their addiction.

Journey Women

If your spouse is struggling with sexual addiction, you need support as well. At our confidential women’s support and recovery group, you can find healing, hope, and restoration.

Living with Hope and Mental Health

If mental illness has impacted you or your family, you’re not alone. We provide spiritual encouragement and a place to belong. While our support groups are not a replacement for therapy, medication, or doctor visits, they are a safe place to find strength through connection with people on a similar journey. Our support groups meet every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month from 7:00-8:30pm – no need to rsvp.

Please contact for more information.

Joyful Rebounders

Please contact for more information.


This group provides a safe place for people to process their grief at the loss of an immediate family member. At GriefShare, we go through biblically based material that teaches how to grieve in healthy ways, as well as how to rebuild and move forward with life.
