Venture is a community of people
and we’d like to introduce you to a few of them.
From heading up mission trips to organizing our Sunday Experiences, our leaders have some incredibly unique gifts. But, the one thing that all these leaders have in common is leading by serving.
Venture Teaching Team
We believe in delivering the incredible message of Christ through diverse voices. The team includes Terry Prisk, Venture’s Lead Pastor; Scott Crownover, Lead Pastor @ the greenroom; Greg Williams, Venture’s Executive Pastor Ministries and Groups; Jason Raitz, Lead Pastor of Thrive Church; Melissa Miller, Trained Speaker and Volunteer Leader; and Shea Prisk, Connection Pastor at Mile City Church.
Meet the Venture Leaders
“I serve because it is my calling. It is what God wants me to do at this time and the bottom line is this…it is a privilege! I love God and people.”
“Being up on stage and looking out over a sea of people giving up their hearts to Christ is always the most fulfilling thing for me.”
Director of Operations
“It’s rewarding being able to provide support to the ministry staff and truly a blessing to do life with such a fantastic group of people.”
“Every week I have the privilege and opportunity to work with highly talented and gifted production teams for the purpose of sharing the message of Christ with our church and community.”
Executive Pastor Ministries and Groups
“There is no greater moment than when someone you care about sees Jesus as he really is and says: I’m all in!”

“I have always loved working with the kids and getting to witness their simple faith, the kind of faith that God has called us to have.”
“I want to reach people who are hurting, lonely, or just plain stressed out. There is power in Jesus and it can change everything.”
