Bold Steps
in Helping Pastors

What if Pastors had the help they needed?

Pastors need better support

Pastoring is exciting, exhausting, tiring, frustrating, rewarding, lonely all rolled into one job. We were never designed to lead churches and ministries alone. VCN is actively working with pastors to provide better resources, encouragement and support so that pastors can work with others who know the unique challenges ministry brings.

After almost 75 years of ministry, we are now called “Venture Church Network.” We continue to embrace our historical heritage that took risks to move away from endangering the good news of Jesus Christ! And like a ship that is built for dangers of the ocean and not the safety of the harbor, so that gospel message, while needing a safe harbor of biblical truth, is intended to be propagated throughout the world, no matter the risks. Today, we continue to embrace our ethos of taking risks for the sake of the gospel by helping every church take bold next steps to advance Gospel-centered transformational churches in every community we touch.
