Our Story

Remington's Hunt Club in Hattiesburg, MS, was once the largest nightclub in the state. The club boasted big name bands and large events and was the center of late-night life in the Pine Belt.

After being forced to close, the building stood vacant for roughly 18 months; the once lively nightclub was nothing more than an empty and degrading building.

During this time, God was moving in the hearts of Venture Church's leadership team. He was showing them that it was time to renew our method for being a church for the unchurched. It was time to become a multi-site church. After much consideration for locations for our second campus, the church voted to purchase the old Remington's Hunt Club.

The building was completely transformed and became The Hunt Club Campus. The parking lot, which was once filled with overgrown weeds and beer bottles, now fills up with the cars of families who come each and every week to one of the campus's two worship experiences on Sundays at 9:30 & 11:00 a.m.

What was once filled with desperation is now filled with hope. What was once tragedy is now triumph.

The Hunt Club Campus is a testament to how God can take something so dark, dirty and broken and transform it into a place of life, of hope, and of victory.

Gray Strickland

A Richton native, Hunt Club Campus Pastor Gray Strickland first attended Venture Church in college with his future wife, Lauren, when it was still known as First Baptist Church of Hattiesburg. During those years, a passion for the unchurched grew in them. In 2005, they left Hattiesburg to help plant a church in Fairhope, Alabama. Their vision was to "be a church that unchurched people love to attend” -- a vision that was birthed from their time at First Hattiesburg! After pastoring in Fairhope for 15 years, God brought Gray, Lauren, and their son, Judah, home to serve where they started— Venture Church! In 2020, Gray joined the Venture Church staff through the LEAD Team Apprenticeship Program, and in 2023, he officially became The Hunt Club Campus Pastor. God has brought Gray and his family full circle, and they believe it to be a testimony of God's faithfulness and purpose for their lives.
