Helping You Take Your Next Step in Your Faith Journey

Whether you are just exploring faith, new to faith, or have been following Jesus for decades, there is always a next step opportunity in your faith journey. 


If you have accepted Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord, baptism is an outward expression of that inward decision. No matter how long you have been following Jesus, if you have yet to be baptized, that is your next step. Currently, we are hosting monthly baptisms. Sign-up for our next opportunity below.

The following are steps we encourage you to take that will help you grow and thrive on your journey with Jesus.



When you are ready to connect at Ventura Missionary, your first step is to sign-up for ROOTED, a life-changing discipleship experience which is designed to help you connect with other people, connect with God, and learn about your purpose. ROOTED takes place twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. 



If you have already been through ROOTED, or if we are between ROOTED sessions, we encourage you to get in a group. We believe that life is better together. We feature sermon-based series throughout several seasons during the year, and there are other group opportunities as well. All of our groups have four components:  1) community; 2) prayer; 3) Bible study; and 4) serving and investing in local and global ministry.



God has uniquely gifted each one of us to serve. We have created a process that will help find a way to serve that is a good fit for you and bless those in your church family. Click below to find out more.



Once you are participating in a group and volunteering, growing and thriving in your journey with Christ, your next step is to lead.  We are in the process of creating a leadership development opportunity for those who are ready to lead. In the meantime, don't be surprised if someone in leadership approaches you to take a step to lead a volunteer team or small group!
