Our Story

Jesse and Sandra met in Seattle, Washington where they were both attending a ministry internship. After Jesse completed the internship he was immediately hired as a youth pastor at Marysville First Assembly of God. After a few short months of completing the internship and working as a youth pastor Jesse and Sandra got engaged and within the year moved to central California to tie-the-knot. After their wedding and some tearful goodbye’s to family and friends, Jesse and Sandra traveled to Texas to begin their first ministry position as youth pastors. During the five and a half years they were in Texas, Jesse and Sandra had a profound and long lasting impact on the 2 cities they served in Fort Worth and San Antonio, especially amongst its youth. Jesse had begun to grow as a speaker and leader and had grown and developed these youth ministries. During these years in Texas they had also welcomed their first two sons. In the winter of 2008 Jesse and Sandra felt a strong call from God to move back to California. They made the move and served in 2 exciting ministries in southern California. In the summer of 2010 Jesse and Sandra had an amazing opportunity to join the staff at North Point Church in Springfield, MO. Under the amazing leadership of Pastors Tommy & Rachel Sparger, Jesse and Sandra had one of the largest youth ministries in the Midwest. In the Spring of 2012 they welcomed their third and final child! In the three years they were part of the team at NPC Jesse and Sandra grew the youth ministry from 150 to over 600 strong and pioneered along with the church a multisite youth ministry with three campuses in Springfield. They also lead the 3rd and final campus of NPC successfully through launch and into new leadership before transitioning into the preparation phase of Church Planting. In the fall of 2014, Jesse and Sandra approached Pastor Ken Squires about starting a church in Seattle, Washington. Having never church planted before they both were hesitant about beginning this Venture but it didn’t take long before God confirmed the move. In the summer of 2015, Jesse and Sandra and their three kids, sold 95% of what they owned packed up the rest of their belongings into a small POD and moved to Seattle. On February 14th, 2016, Venture Church had its first service with an attendance of 150 people. In just the first 6 months Venture Church has begun to see the work of God unfold in a supernatural way. Over 100 people have given their lives to Jesus, countless families have begun to call VC home. Marriages are being restored, children are being dedicated, dozens of people have been water baptized and all of this is happening because God has called Jesse and Sandra to lead the charge of Reaching People who are far from God and Teaching them to Follow Jesus. Jesse and Sandra believe the best is yet to come and that as you visit with us on Sunday you will experience encouragement and the joy of being apart of a community passionate about Jesus and people. With the journey in Seattle just starting, Jesse and Sandra are confident in knowing that these days are only the beginnings of the amazing things that God wants to do in Seattle!

Our Mission

Venture Church exists to reach people far from God and teach them how to follow Jesus.

Core Values

Courageous Faith

In order to influence and empower people we must live with a tenacity and courageous faith. Thinking big, living big and taking big steps towards God watching Him move.


 In order to make a mega impact we will need simplistic focus. Cutting away clutter and busyness we have a singular mission and we will fight aggressively to keep that simplistic razor-sharp focus.


Everything is for God. We will embrace our limitations and strive to honor God and inspire those we influence, by never settling and always bringing our best.


We are held in place with integrity. Financial, relational, biblical and practical integrity will be paramount to our progress and without it we lose our influence.


Curiosity and innovation are central to our mission. We celebrate new, constantly changing and improving progress to better communicate God’s message.


We will never shy away and always lead the way in generous giving to our city, our church and our families. We believe generosity is the fruit of gratitude and it is more blessed to give than to receive.


We will do whatever is necessary short of sin to reach people who do not know Jesus. Doing what others will not, to capture and attract those who are far from Jesus.


People matter! We will honor those around us, above us and below us with sincere love understanding their value and potential in God. Placing others needs before our own.


Venture Church exists for the world, not for us. It honors God when we serve and we will serve without reservation to advance the potential of others finding and following Jesus. We are not here to consume but to contribute.
