Tim’s Personal Invite
Note From Elder Board
The elder board has prayerfully journeyed with Tim Lundy in his return to the Bay Area as our new senior pastor!
We’re so excited to have Tim continue the Venture legacy that Chip has so faithfully served; Tim's arrival begins this October! Please join us in prayer for Tim as he prepares for the weekend teaching, for the Lundy family as they get settled, and for the kingdom work ahead for Venture.
This journey has been marked by a deep seeking of God's will for Venture Christian Church, Chip, and Tim, and we are excited for Venture to be arriving at this juncture. God has chosen Tim “for such a time as this” to help Venture reach our local Bay Area. Our prayer now is for a smooth transition between Chip and Tim as well as continued blessings for Venture church as a whole in this exciting new season.
The Venture Elders
Note From Chip Ingram
As I’ve passed the baton to our new Senior Pastor Tim Lundy, the words of the apostle Paul come to mind, “I thank my God upon my every remembrance of you all, Always offering prayer with JOY in my every prayer for you ALL, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now.” (Philippians1:3-5)
What a great journey it has been together; your love, support, and commitment to the Lord Jesus have shaped my life, Theresa’s, our family, and Living on the Edge beyond what we could have ever imagined. To say we are deeply grateful is a gross understatement.
As I pass the baton of leadership to Tim, the greatest compliment and encouragement you could ever give me is “that I hear that you are standing firm in One spirit, with One mind, striving Together for the faith of the gospel” under his leadership. (Philippians 1:27)
New seasons demand new leaders.
New leaders bring fresh ideas, different experiences, and new gifts in order to take Christ’s Church to new levels of depth and impact.
Pray for Tim, the staff and the elders!
Lean in and Refuse to Compare!
Be Open, look Forward not Back!
Serve, Don’t complain, Be Grateful!
Speak kindly, Love deeply!
Forgive, and Assume the best always!
God’s greatest work through Venture is in the days AHEAD, but that will require a fresh work in each of us.
Take your greatest steps of FAITH Now and make your LIFE count for the Lord and the Gospel...
Praying God’s best for you Venture-
October Teaching Series
Tim Teaches: Sat / 4PM , Sun / 9:30AM /11:15AM
Disruption: When God Disrupts Your Life
Join us as we explore this new 4-part teaching series of wholeheartedly following God in times when we don’t understand, can’t see ahead, or feel inadequate or have blown it. We’ll explore the lives of great men in the Bible such as Abram, Moses and Peter and see how God disrupts their common thread of failure for good. Are you open to God shaking up your world for Him?
