this is us

We are a Gospel-Driven Church: The Gospel is ultimately what transforms us. Every service from beginning to end has been driven and motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

VENTURE’S MISSION: Pursuing Christ Together

God has ferociously pursued each of us from the second we were born. Our church exists to pursue Him back. The best way to pursue the Lord is to do it together. 


We believe It’s okay to not be okay. We believe God created a place where we can be transparent, open and authentic - the church. If you have had addictions, hurts, hangups, struggles, or simply are at the end of your rope, you’re in the right place! Church should not be a place where we hide our struggles, but where we reveal our struggles, so family can lift us up. Venture is a community where messy people are welcome, because it’s the only kind of person there is.

You can belong before you believe. You don’t have to agree and believe like us in order to be a part of us. God created each of us to belong to a community. We can even disagree on which college football team is the best - it doesn’t matter. As much as I love our church, we would be better if you were a part of it.

We believe everyone matters. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from. You matter to God - and to us. The person on stage does not matter more than the person in the crowd. 

We believe Church is a team sport. Everybody gets in the game! Nobody stays on the bench. You may feel you don’t have much to offer, but we believe God has uniquely gifted you to make a difference for others. We can only reach our potential when our faith goes beyond our head and heart - but it goes to our hands. 

We believe Jesus changes lives. Not our preacher, not any organization, not even our church can change someone’s life. Only Jesus can reach into someone’s heart and internally change them. If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation!


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 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.
