Demographic: Silicon Valley, multi-ethnic, suburban
Statement Of Faith:

Venture Christian Church is a non-denominational disciple-making church located in the heart of Silicon Valley. We are a community of people who come from all parts of the world and from very diverse backgrounds. Our mission is to help people find and follow Jesus. Our passion is to serve our community, meeting people where they are, encouraging them to take a step in order to discover the Kingdom of God in real life.
The Venture internship program is designed to equip men and women in practical ministry skills while they are growing in intimacy with Jesus, becoming more like Jesus, and learning to do the things that Jesus did. Interns will experience weekly equipping along with the other interns, plus weekly mentoring from their ministry leader.
Launching in September 2020, the 9-month internship involves approximately 20 hours per week of training and ministry experience. This should translate into three credits per semester toward an internship class or ministry field experience.
What you can expect by participating in the Venture internship:
1. You will clarify your call to, and focus in, ministry.
2. You will participate with one of our ministry teams: family, adult, outreach, or weekend experience.
3. You will receive practical training in all facets of church ministry.
4. You will become closer in your relationship with Jesus.
5. You will develop new leadership skills.
6. You will grow in confidence in doing effective ministry.
7. You will have the opportunity to engage with leaders in a large church context.
Because housing expenses in the Bay Area are high, we will help to arrange housing in host homes for single interns who need it. Interns may seek outside employment as long as it doesn’t conflict with the ministry internship.
