International Community

International Community

Join with people from all over the world who have a common heart for Venture Nias. People who have a desire to see the gospel of Jesus set people free and build people up. Our ripple effect starts in Nias island and will spread throughout Indonesia and beyond.

Our local church in Nias is the spearhead of the ministry, but our international community is the shaft behind that drives it. This international community comes from many different sources. Some people came to Nias to vacation, discover Venture church and stay connected even after they return home. Some are short term mission teams who travel to Nias to do ministry and continue to support us all year long. Some are people who have never been to Nias but have heard of us or met us along the road of life and have stayed in touch. Regardless of where you come from or how you heard about Venture Nias, we are blessed to have you. God is gathering an international community that gives support and gains inspiration. Together we are making an eternal difference.

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

~ Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20)

Let’s test an example link. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Omnes enim peccaverunt et egent gloriam Dei. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit.Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam.
