Men and Women
Are you hungry for a deeper encounter with God? Do you need deeper relationships to help you grow spiritually? You should join us at Bold Venture!
Bold Venture is not really a conference. It’s an organic network of men and women who believe we must have authentic relationships in order to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
Our three-day retreats are not just about listening to speakers, even though we have great ones. We build our events around intense worship, inspirational teaching and lots of fellowship around meals and in small groups. And we emphasize the importance of mentoring because Jesus spent most of His time discipling His followers. I hope you will join us this year for an event near you!
Director Bold Venture
Real disciples make disciples. They don’t just sit in pews year after year like spectators.
“When Jesus called His disciples, He appointed them “so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach” (Mark 3:14). Jesus’ first desire was for a relationship; the work of the ministry was secondary. Today we have switched this—our focus is on the work, and the importance of relationships is minimized.”
Devin Austin Ernce"I was deeply reminded of my need to rely completely on Holy Spirit. It made my day seeing Men going to the altar then sharing their freedom and love with their brothers, thats what it is all about. I love the connection you make with your brothers at these events!”
Vitaly Vitorsky"The last Bold Venture made a big impact on my life. With all the blessings that I got there, I also received my restoration as a man of God. The dog tag that I still wear always reminds me that I am not my own ... I belong to Jesus. I'm in His army, and for me there is no turning back. It is a privilege to serve and to be in the army of God.”
Kyle Hewitt"Such a powerful weekend, still trying to put into words what has happened. I know I was broken, and when I thought God was done, he broke me again. Ready and waiting to see what God has in store!!”
Ejenake Chris Oruese"When the father's spoke about their struggles and fears in their lives and Paul Ryan's message on how God can use you at any level to get supernatural breakthrough and salvation truly inspired me. But my most touching moments were with my cell group members, sharing, praying and loving each other and christ....boldest moments!"
Amanda Galvao"Last year I attended Bold Venture and when we broke into small groups, there were people who prayed and prophesied over me and to be honest I didn't know how fast some of the things would begin to happen…"
Discipleship Tips from Lee
“I invest a lot of my time in training and encouraging young leaders. I started these weekly texts as an extra way to stay in close touch with the guys and girls I’m discipling. Each week I give them a practical tip about some aspect of spiritual growth.”
