Our Mission

Our mission is to ‘Love People Better’. We equip people to help people. Through each of our programmes, we develop in people three strengths: the awareness to come alongside others, the presence to journey with them through thick and thin, and the passion to stick with people whatever happens.

Vennture’s passion is on significant, substantive, sustainable programmes that make a tangible difference for people facing considerable challenges. We have a pipeline of initiatives supported by team members from a diverse range of backgrounds, who we recruit carefully and train rigorously to become outcome focused. All of our people are united by a set of shared values.

Like John and Emelia Venn, we aim to show “The Power of Jesus’ Love” by living out the values that they both held as precious to them.

Our Values

Vennture’s values are derived from our founder John Venn. His values are timeless – we want them to be seen and felt in everything we do.

Faith
We live in the light of love and recognise that love can change everything – loving God and loving others as we love ourselves.
We value each individual as special; each has a unique mix of God-given gifts, talents and experiences.
We work with, serve and relate to all people.

Love
We recognise family is an answer no matter how messy it gets.
We encourage individuals to be and act as servant leaders in their lives, family work and community.
We never give up on people, encouraging them to take small steps that can lead to big changes.
We accept everyone as we find them and without condition; we encourage people to live a life rooted in love.

Endeavour
We accept we don’t have all the answers and in sharing in each person’s journey we are willing to share the changes we are making in our own lives.
We respect, nurture and promote a strong work ethic to build everyone’s esteem, resilience and resourcefulness.
We encourage enterprise to create more to invest in helping individuals to take responsibility for their future.
