Venture Connect OverView

Venture Connect is a member portal for Venture Christian Church attendees which provides a myriad of useful functionality that can help you connect in more meaningful ways with the Venture Community. In order to take advantage of Venture Connect you need to have an account that requires a username and password.

Some of the benefits of having an account include:

  • If you have an account that you can log in to first, then any event or class registration forms you’re attempting to complete will be simplified as the system auto-fills any relevant contact information directly from your profile.
  • An account is required for making an online payment for events registration
  • If you have children, and an up-to-date family profile, children’s checkin for weekend programs are a breeze as most of the necessary information can be extracted directly from your account.
  • Church staff can easily contact you using your profiles contact details if there is an emergency situation when your kids are in class.
  • Logging in to your account prior to volunteering simplifies the process by pre-identifying you as you submit an expression of interest forms.
  • You can maintain your personal profile and household information, ensuring contact details are correct and up-to-date should any Ministries or your group leaders need to contact you
  • If you’re a group leader, you have the ability to take group attendance and to update your groups profile (meeting locations and times) directly from your account profile.
  • With an account, you can view the results of any assessments (such as DISC) you’ve taken with Venture.
