My wife and I have had the privilege of going on the ride of a lifetime - moving to Katy in the Summer of 2018 - then starting a new church in the Katy/Cypress area of Houston, TX in January of 2019.
A small group of dreamers have helped this church come together: from the NEXUS organization https://nexus.us to our financial and prayer partners, to a small group of people even packing up their bags and moving to Houston!
Our dream has been to start a church where diversity is celebrated rather than ridiculed; a church where it doesn’t matter where you are on the journey of faith, you will be welcomed with unconditional love; a church that walks with you through the deep valleys of life and rejoices with you when you’re on the mountaintop; a church that does not sit back and wait for people to come to us, rather we would go to the people; a church where it’s okay to be painfully transparent about how hard life is; and a church that takes big risks for Jesus.
Our goal is to bring people to Jesus, grow people in Jesus, equip people for Jesus.
We desired to start a church where everyone is involved and plays a role. We consider ourselves a head - heart - hands church. We don’t want the Gospel to just get to our heads, we want it to move to our hearts and then impact our hands.
We believe that God has been pursuing a relationship with you since the day you were born, whether you realize it or not.
We have a firm conviction that church should be the best hour of your week. As one Venturite whispered to me after a Sunday gathering, “I didn’t know church could be this fun!”
I agree! It’s been thrilling! As fun as our brief past has been, our best seasons are in front of us. The reason for that is because it has the possibility of including YOU!
If you’re looking for a perfect church, Venture is not it! We are imperfect people serving a perfect God. And we’re doing it together.
