Decisions AND Disciples: Why Both are Essential

Here at New Venture, one of our motto's is REACH... TEACH... RELEASE.  What does this mean to anyone?  I'll explain!

As disciples of Christ, we are always looking for ways to Reach others.  That could translate to partnering as a greeter, host, prayer team, etc.  Other ways include 'venturing in the park' (we @ NV are doing that THIS weekend!) which is an amazing time for all.  As the weather warms up, New Venture brings church to local parks in the community.  We have food, music, and games for the kids.  This is an excellent way to reach others because the fun and games at the park attract folks in nearby neighborhoods, and it becomes a spiritual filled atmosphere in a non-church setting!

After we Reach, we Teach. New Venture has so many ways that we teach.  We have Starting Point classes which cover the basics of christian foundations as well as in-depth Bible classes.  We also have Discovery classes which teach about the specifics of New Venture, ways to partner, and benefits of being a church member. 

Once we have reached people, taught them, we then Release them.  This is where people are encouraged to truly be disciples of Christ by venturing into the community and spreading the Love of our Lord through actions.  Some examples that we do at New Venture are beach cleanups, cooking for our military Veteran, visiting seniors in the community, as well as Thanksgiving dinners for the homeless.  The possibilities are endless as there is always something going on at New Venture.

We encourage you to get involved... take the first step by signing up to Partner with us.  Bring a friend or neighbor with you to church.  It's the little things that truly add up to the most monumental outcomes!
