Be reminded that nothing at Venture happens without you. We are the church together as we are equipped to do works of service, being built up in unity and maturity (Ephesians 4). The impact of your leadership in your Life Group cannot be overstated! People are cared for, encouraged, and built up in ever-increasing ways.

If your group is open for people to join make sure you pay attention to Texts/Emails and respond within 48 hours.

We can’t wait to hear how your Life Groups are going, and we are eager to continue together to be part of God’s work here in San Jose.
