Creative Community One-Days are a series of free creative workshops for those who desire to grow deeper in their gifts and stronger with one another. 

Every month from September to December, we’re offering unique workshops designed to develop your creative abilities while building community with fellow believers who have a passion for the arts. We look forward to seeing you there, no matter where you are on your creative journey. Come learn, interact, share and grow.

All workshops are FREE (and childcare is provided), so take a look at the workshop descriptions and register by clicking below!



December 7


In this class we will discover the heart of worship, as well as learn the practical, hands on skills you'll need to lead worship in small groups and large environments. This class is open to current worship leaders at Venture, as well as those with a serious interest in joining the team.

Lucas is an Aussie from Sydney, Australia who began writing and recording music at age 16. He moved to the USA in mid-2002 after meeting his wife, Jody, on a mission trip in India. His passion for worship has taken him across the globe to over 30 countries with songs recorded on CD projects by worship leaders, country bands and solo artists. He has also had the privilege of leading award-winning creative teams producing short films, concert productions, web technology and more.

Shep Gibson is a singer, songwriter, and composer from Western North Carolina who currently co-leads worship right here at Venture Christian Church. He graduated from Furman University (Greenville, SC) with a bachelor’s degree in composition and has been a part of many performing vocal ensembles. He enjoys traveling, being with friends, and acting goofy.

Lexi Hausmann was born and raised in the Silicon Valley, and has been leading worship since age 16. Leading worship is both a calling and a passion of hers, and she seeks to help others connect with the Lord in a new way through worship and expression. She enjoys songwriting and playing guitar, belting Carrie Underwood hits in the car, and roaming the aisles of Barnes and Noble. 



Everyone’s Posting or Blogging, Should I? Almost everyone is using Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Google+ to broadcast their latest experiences. But how can it be used to promote your business, church, service, or point-of-view? This class will be an interactive session designed to identify the best approach for your type of message. Whether you are a business person, supporting your church activities, or someone with an important message, you can use social media to advance your cause. There are right ways, questionable ways, and wrong ways to use it. We’ll start with three common social media platforms, Facebook Pages, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and dive into other platforms as well.
