Our Strategic Partners
Love INC stands for Love In the Name of Christ. As a part of a nationwide movement (Loveinc.org), this organization is dedicated to seeing lives transformed out of poverty. Love Inc meets basic needs like food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and money management. When urgent needs come into Venture, we partner with Love INC to help provide immediate care and support through emergency housing, food, clothing, etc. To help this great organization continue its work in the community, Venture provides monetary support including fundraisers like Christmas Crack-Up.
Carriage Town Ministries
Flint has a myriad of needs, and Carriage Town is at the epicenter of ministry in Jesus name. Our life groups have traveled north on 23 to Flint to serve with Carriage Town. Carriage Town is for those who are hungry, they provide something to eat; for those who are thirsty, something to drink. For those who need a place to stay, they provide a home; for those who need clothing, a coat to keep them warm. And for those who are sick, a free walk-in clinic is provided each week. The gospel of Christ is taught daily through word, deed, devotionals and church services. Check out their website for more (http://www.carriagetown.org/).
