MISSIONAL FAMILIES

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17 ESV)  


We desire our groups to be gospel-centered in everything we do, making much of Christ and His mission. The Gospel of Jesus calls us into deep community with other believers and into a life of mission for His Name and glory to be known.


As you encounter the people of Venue, our desire is that you can expect to receive authentic relationships with broken people who together form a beautiful mosaic and desire to point people to God. Missional Families are not just Bible studies. Through intentional relationships as we live life in community, our goal is to encourage each other to live a life consistent with the teachings of Christ and to use these relationships to reach the unreached around us.


"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Matthew 28:19


Our calling as followers of Christ is not just to do missions, but to live a life on mission. We are to be a sent people, going out with a message of love for the world. At Venue, we believe this is best done in community. The mission of God unites us into community and becomes the lens through which we view the world. This means our groups drive partnerships within the community, as well as around the globe, to make disciples.

dna groups

Discover Jesus. Nurture truth in our hearts. Act in repentance and faith. A DNA Group usually consist of three people—men with men, women with women- who meet together regularly to be known and to bring the gospel to bear on each others lives to grow into maturity in Christ. 


DNA Groups are not about seeking the approval of people; God’s approval - the only approval that matters - is already ours because of Jesus’ perfect life, death and resurrection which makes us perfect. (Galatians 1:10; 2 Corinthians 5:21) A DNA Group consistently prays for and is proactively involved with those that are not yet reconciled to the Father.
