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 ā€œVenture Church Network.ā€ 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.

3 Things You Can Do

Pray for your church

It sounds so simple, but it can be easy to forget to pray for the church. Prayer is powerful, it unifies people and it makes a difference.

Be intentional and take the time to pray about what God is doing and will do in your church.

Connect to Your Region

A healthy and effective local church is a catalyst of positive change in a community. We believe that our regions are the key to helping church achieve health and effectiveness.

Support the Work of VCN

Your support can make a big impact on the work we do serving regions and churches around the country. Please consider partnering with Venture Church Network.
