Venture Mission Trips
Compassion knows no bounds, and neither do we.
Making a global impact means being catalysts for God’s will to end suffering for all His people. We do this by working hand-in-hand with organizations already established in countries around the world. Mission trips are a vital part of what God calls us to do as a church and the driving force behind our desire to exhibit the tangible love of Christ to people in our region, our country, and our the world.
Upcoming Mission Trips
Venture is sending out teams to invest in the lives of men, women and children who are being served by our global ministry partners. You do not have to physically travel with a team in order to be a significant part of our mission trips. It takes a much larger team of prayer partners and financial donors to make the journey possible. Check out these trips to learn more about the missions and how you can be a part of or support these teams.
Antigua, Guatemala: March 10 - 17
Serve the poor in Guatemala. In Antigua we will visit a church plant, work with families in poverty on home building/remodel projects, and give a gift to orphans, all in one week! We will not only serve in Guatemala, but also equip each of you to lead a Venture mission trip in the future.
Nepal: May 13-24
Encourage Nepali leaders with the love of Jesus. Venture Church is serving girls and women who were slaves to the evil of sex trafficking.
