BY FAITH, WE GO.
"By an act of faith, Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place that would become his home. When he left he had no idea where he was going. By an act of faith ... Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations—the City designed and built by God." (Hebrews 11:8, 10)
God has given Venture Church a vision to go and reach 10,000 people in the next ten years. Talk about a faith-stretching exercise! Much like Abraham, Venture's journey of faith has required following in obedience before knowing where we are going.
“Great gifts mean great responsibilities; greater gifts, greater responsibilities!” (Luke 12:48)
To equip us to go where God is leading, we are launching a new initiative called “Venture Out.” Venture Out is a movement. It is a movement to go in faith to unknown places to reach 10,000 lives - one person at a time. It is a movement ignited by your generosity and defined through your acts of love. It is a God-led movement to reclaim the lifeless and repurpose them for life.
We are asking that you and your family prayerfully consider giving a one-time gift to the “Venture Out” journey of faith, then committing to give once a month - above and beyond your tithe - to "Venture Out" over the next three years. No matter how big or small, God wants to write every person who calls Venture Church their church into this story.
In obedience, we follow. By faith, we go.
WHAT WILL "VENTURE OUT" DO?
Stone County Campus
In 2015, we knew God was leading us to Stone County, and in the spring of 2016, we began to “venture out” in faith. This resource initiative will allow us to purchase property in Stone County that includes a former bowling alley consisting of approximately 20,000 square feet and situated on approximately 2 acres of land.
With a vision to reach 10,000 people across south Mississippi, we may not know the destination where God has called us to go next, but we know we have been called to go in faith.
Assets for Existing Campuses
Venture Out will allow us to update existing campuses to ensure we keep the Venture experience fresh, relevant and consistent across campuses.
Expanding Local Missions
“Venture Out” will allow us the financial resources to expand our partnerships with local ministries to impress the love of Jesus into the lives of other people through acts of service.
