Small Groups

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

At Ventura Missionary, we encourage everyone to be in a group, because we know that life is better together. If you have already been through Rooted, your next step is to get in a group! All of our groups include the following: connection with others, Bible study, prayer, and serving* opportunities.

If you have been a group for a while, your next step might be to facilitate a group. It not only will grow your own faith, it is tremendously fulfilling to come alongside those who are growing in theirs.

We host quarterly "Elevate" events to empower and equip our group leaders. If you're interested in taking this next step on your faith journey, complete the Facilitator Interest Form below.
If you already facilitate a group and have not yet registered your group, we encourage you to do so. This way, we will know to include you in training and equipping opportunities, share resources and more. Ventura Missionary groups connect in community, study the Bible together, pray together and serve together. Complete the form below to register your group.
