Salvation in Jesus Christ automatically includes a call to ministry. Every Believer is created, saved, called, gifted, authorized, and commanded to minister. New Venture has several ministries designed to allow every member of our church family to help meet needs throughout our region. Whether you are married or single, a man or woman, student or a child, we have a ministry designed just for you.

Do you have a gift in the area of Praise and Worship? If so, we’d love to have you consider being apart of New Venture’s Praise and Worship Ministry.

Join with other faith-filled believers meeting together to praise God and lift up the needs of our church, community and leaders, as well as individual needs of the saved and unsaved. We meet in these four different settings:

Pray up: The Prayer team meets backstage in the waiting room of the Counseling Offices on Sundays from 8:30am to 9:45am to pray for God to work through us at our services. Everyone is welcome and attendance is encouraged. More information is available at the Connection Center.

Prayer Partners: During Celebration Services, Prayer Teams meet at the front of the Worship Center on Saturdays at 5:00 pm

& Sundays at 8:30am & 10:30am. Register online using the Prayer Ministry tab at and choose the services and dates you are available to serve.

Prayer Tuesday: On Tuesdays from 5:00-6:00pm, we meet at the Connections Café to pray for individuals, families, the church, the community, the country and anything else God places on our hearts.

We welcome anyone and encourage regular attendance.

Prayer Online: A team of prayer warriors connect through electronic means to spread prayer requests and intercede together with the heart of faith in God for specific individuals, our families, and our community.

New Venture was founded on prayer, and it remains a core element to the church’s focus. Prayer is the way we communicate with God, and it’s effective in moving the Hand of God.

NOT FOR SALE works with organizations around San Diego county to help provide a safe place for survivors of sex trafficking and bring awareness to how rampant the trade is in our own city. Our goal is to become a positive influence on our communities for future generations to come.

We also hold training seminars with pastors, psychologists, and other professionals in this area of expertise. Our first meeting was uh-may-zing! New Venture’s NOT FOR SALE at its first Anti-Trafficking Training had near 100 in attendance!!! So blessed to be a part of a church that is involved in both Helping Humanity and Changing Eternity.

Connections Café

Some of the best fellowship happens in the kitchen! Partnering in the Connections Café involves setup & teardown, cooking, grilling, serving food, cashiers and general hosting in a fun and friendly environment of fellowship. Shifts start and end approximately an hour before and after services and there are spots for you during special events such as Discovery Weekend, Comedy Nights, Prayer Weeks and more! At home, some of the best fellowship happens in the kitchen. At New Venture, you can get in the center of the action every weekend in the Connections Café.

Welcome to Kid’s World!

New Venture Grace Church loves kids! We believe that church should be the most fun and life-changing experience for children every single week. Our Kid’s World ministries exist to meet the needs of kids and families in our region and to touch our world with the love of Jesus Christ. Each environment is intentionally designed so that kids can engage and learn at their age level. We are committed to making church such an exciting experience that kids are dragging their parents to church. Be our guest and come to see what God is doing!


Tips for First Timers: Each weekend dozens of first time families visit Kid’s World and find a church home where their children are happy and learning more than ever. On your first visit, we recommend that you arrive about 15 minutes prior to the start of service. We would love for you to meet some of our Kid’s World staff and partners, show you our kids’ environments, get your child’s info into our check-in system, and answer any questions you may have while still getting you to service on time. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend Kid’s World as often as you want. It’s fun to see your child learn and build relationships. Feel free to participate if you like.
