Two new churches have started in recent weeks.
Venture Christian Church, Katy, Texas, held a four-week grand opening from Jan. 20 to Feb. 10 and saw 151 different people come to its services.
Lead planter Nathan Boldt wrote that Venture’s intent is to “reach people with no connection to a church.” He added, “If I were to share one stat, it would be that about 80 percent of our crowd are unchurched. . . . We are thrilled at what God has been up to!”
VCC is a plant by Nexus Church Planting and is also supported by several Texas congregations.
Further west, Luminous City church in San Diego launched Sunday after months of planning and 21 days of prayer and fasting. Eight people made decisions for Jesus at the inaugural service at City College. Carlos and Gina Isaziga are the lead planters, supported by Kairos Church Planting.
