Venture Students is a community of middle and high school students gathered together with the purpose of individual spiritual growth as a section of the body of Christ. We exist to see students become fully acclimated into their place in the body of Christ through discovering their God-given passions and gifts while engaging them in worship and transforming teaching.
Love With No Agenda - Every student that we connect with is an opportunity to pour God’s love and grace out into the future, radically loving them with no agenda. [1 John 4:16]
Empower the Next Generation of Christ-Followers - We believe that students hold the power to change the world through Christ right now, not just after they graduate. We will empower students as Christ’s best creation, as well as value students’ voices in the church and care about what Jesus is doing in the lives of our students. [1 Timothy 4:12]
Send Students Out - We desire to send students out from Venture Students so that they can continue their engagement in the body of Christ and further grow their devotion to God throughout college and into their young adulthood. [John 15:4]

We welcome 6th-through-12th graders, middle and high schoolers alike!
Fellowship with peers and student leaders alike, worship, and fun! Venture Students operates with a small-group-based environment so that students feel connected in a safe and educating atmosphere where they can be open about their walk with Jesus.
No! We want to encourage ALL local students to be a part of our gatherings, no matter where they or their families may call their home church.
You can join our Venture Students group on Facebook to directly keep up with the latest news and updates from Venture Church and our student leaders; or, you and your student can follow us on Instagram!
We’d love to hear from you. Please email Matt and Kacey at firstname.lastname@example.org with any other questions that you may have.
The spooky fun doesn’t end on October 31st — join Venture Students for a COSTUME PARTY on November 1st from 5:00-7:30pm! This special event will run one hour longer than our regular youth group gatherings so that students have more time to spend with friends; plus, we’ll have more food, special games, a costume contest, and AWESOME GIVEAWAY PRIZES! This is a great opportunity for students to invite their friends to youth group!
