Who We Are
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little more about Venue Church! When Venue Church officially launched it’s campus in 2013, we knew Avon didn’t need just another church. So we spent some time dreaming about the kind of church we would want to be a part of. The kind of church where “Everyone’s Welcome” because nobody’s perfect, but we believe that anything’s possible.” Venue is a church that is focused on communicating the timeless truth of God’s Word in a culturally relevant and applicable way. You may also notice that Venue is more than just a church, but a network of Life Groups. It is a church made up of the kind of dynamic relationships that God created us to have. It is a church full of vision about the future and excitement about finding our place in His story. We look forward to meeting you!
We get it – your kids are kind of a big deal. Not only do we value their safety just as much as you do, but we also get the fun factor. Venue Kids is an environment designed just for your children! While you’re in service, rest assured that your kids are receiving top-notch, age-appropriate care with an experience rooted in the truth of God’s radical grace. Now that’s something worth getting excited about!
VISION AND MISSION
We want to draw people closer to Jesus regardless of how far away they are from him. Venue’s vision is to “lead people to become fully engaged followers of Jesus Christ”. We do that through our six R’s. The first three speak to how we become Fully Engaged.
REACH – Lost People Found
RESTORE – Found People Free
RELEASE – Free People Empowered
The second three speak to the culture of how that happens.
REAL – Be authentic at all cost.
RELEVANT – The most relevant language is love.
Cover everything in it.
RELATIONAL – We need each other.
The word Venue is defined as somewhere that action takes place. We have that decision to make at church, or at work or at home. The people are the church. It’s God’s Love in Action. We filter everything we do through that. Are we reflecting Christ’s love? Because it’s his love that’s radically transformed our pastors and compelled them to live by radical faith.
