What is Youth Venture?

Youth Venture is a community based, Christ centered, guidance program open to all youth between the 6th and 12th grade. The teen center and Skate Park offer adult supervision and friendship, after school and on weekends. Youth Venture, a ministry of Foothills Christian Church, was formed to assist teens in learning the basic principles for successful living found in the Bible, and to help establish significant relationships for those teens with mature adults.
