About Students

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.

What We Do

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]
