New Song Alert! • Worthy Of It All

Worthy Of It All was written by David Brymer and Ryan Hall in 2012, but did not gain widespread popularity until the 2021 release by CeCe Winans.

Venture Missions Update on Sudan

Venture supports Sudan in word and deed….but why?  What it means to “support Sudan” has shifted dramatically over the past three months, but the efforts of Venture Church have remained actionable.

New Song Sunday • You’ve Already Won

This song supports the overarching narrative of our upcoming series on Joshua. God promised the children of Israel the promised land and at every turn of their journey, He faithfully provided for them.

Holy Tuesday • Taking Up the Cross

Read Mark 8:27-9:1 The Gospel of Mark takes a very serious and somber turn beginning with these verses. Jesus begins to reveal what it truly means for him to be the Messiah. Even though Jesus has not himself preached that he is to be a popular political figure and miracle worker, many of the crowds as well as his followers …
