At Ventura Missionary Church, we place a high value on prayer. We believe it is a vital component of everything we do. As such, prayer undergirds our Sunday Morning Gathering, our Groups and our Missions and Outreach Opportunities to Go. We encourage all Christ-followers to spend time daily in individual prayer and also to participate in corporate prayer opportunities.
