Student Ministries at CBCVentura exists to:

  • be a place where students feel they belong and are safe
  • be a place where students are given opportunities to meet Jesus, develop a lasting relationship with Him, and are encouraged and equipped to live out His words in being Jesus to all we come in contact with
  • be a place of fun, where students can be themselves and can create lasting memories that spurn them into deeper relationship with each other and the Lord.

If you are searching, if you are lost, if you have no clue about who Jesus is, you are highly encouraged to join us on Sunday mornings, at one of our midweek programs, or at one of the amazing events we do monthly to connect!
