Live in Community

A great community can change your life. 


At Venture, the primary way we live in community is through Life Groups. They are usually 8 to 15 people who meet weekly or several times a month, throughout San Jose. Some discuss the weekend’s message, others are focused on a phase of life, interest, or cause. But all are sharing in each other’s ups and downs and pursuing the way of Jesus together.

Why Join a Group? You were created to have meaningful relationships. These relationships offer a safe place to find encouragement and support on your lifelong journey of finding and following Jesus. Jump in and join a Life Group!

Mid-sized Communities

These communities are typically offered seasonally, gathering weekly at Venture in groups of anywhere from 20 to 100. They are a great way to get more connected to Venture, receive guidance in particular areas of life, and connect with people like yourself.


Join us on Thursday mornings to find strength in friendship and become more the man you are meant to be.
