LOCAL OUTREACH

Impacting the World Around Us

At Ventura Missionary we have a deep passion for reaching and caring for our community, and all of our groups are encouraged to invest in local and global ministry efforts.

 

Please contact Tracy Maxson if you would like more information about outreach opportunities. She can help you or your group identify a local and global opportunity in which you can live and share the transforming love of Jesus. Some of the ways to engage are listed below.
