When faith meets work
all the hours of our lives can be
infused with meaning

Vennture is bridging the gap between Sunday and the other six days of the week.

Do you find your work meaningful? Do you feel like you are able to use your God-given gifts to benefit others and promote flourishing in the world? Sadly, many Christians respond that they see their job only as a means to an end. Too often, Christians divide their life into the sacred and the secular.

We are inspiring and motivating individuals and groups to reflect God’s image through creative and innovative daily work and mobilizing Christians to join God’s redemptive mission in the world through their work. Vennture is part of a growing group of God’s people who believe transformation can happen when faith and work intersect. Our goal is to stimulate conversations, build connecting points and incubate new ideas about living out our faith, seven days of the week.

As followers of Jesus, our work matters to God and has eternal Kingdom value. Our work is a gift that provides us with an opportunity to participate in God’s redemptive work in our communities and our world.

HOW WE WORK

Vennture works in three strategic ways:

Formation

Through Vennture’s network of partners, we focus on teaching, training, coaching, and mentoring a biblical theology of work that seeks to close the sacred | secular divide and aligns with CBM’s commitment to Integral Mission.

Creation

Vennture works within a network of partners, and in a spirit of mutuality, to assist in the creation of transformational businesses that lead to human flourishing, provide people with meaningful work, and glorify God.

Mobilization

Vennture is building global networks and providing unique opportunities for God’s people to accept their role of helping to heal a broken world through word and deed, by join God’s mission in the world through their daily work

Support
Global Entrepreneurs

Whether here in Canada or somewhere around the world, operating a small business is not easy and there are many challenges to overcome. In the Majority World, one challenge many aspiring entrepreneurs must overcome is a lack of access to financial capital to enable them to start or grow a business.

Supporting entrepreneurs to create transformational businesses that alleviate poverty by creating lasting and meaningful jobs and have a positive community impact is one of Vennture’s primary goals.

With our partner, Flourish Financial, we are pleased to be able to provide greater access to equitable credit and loans to Global South entrepreneurs.
