We are a group of passionate, creative entrepreneurs who meet monthly to encourage each other to love God, and to love others through our daily work.
We talk business, have a topical conversation and take some time to pray for each other’s Joy Ventures.
We believe we are creative because He is creative. Creation is the means by which God chose and continues to express His love.
As image bearers of the Creator, we too have the ability to express God's love to the world by bringing beauty and relevance to even the most mundane parts of life. Through creativity we can make the world a better place. We can bring God's justice and mercy to earth. God does the heavy lifting, but his yoke is easy and his burden is light. We are all sitting, patiently waiting on the bench to be called to action. But we also need to be intentional, to keep practicing with the hope and knowledge that we'll be tapped to get in the game and play our role. As part of the JV Squad, we all get the opportunity to talk and walk this out -- together.
Who can join?
JV Squad is for creative entrepreneurs who are:
- Self-employed in a creative business. This includes writers, musicians, artists, designers, architects, photographers...if you create something you’re in the right place.
- Interested in meeting with others who see the importance of using their business to further the Kingdom of God through loving others and loving God.
- Open source about your business practices and willing to share practical insight on ways you have found to make your business run better to help each other along the way.
- Seeking a small community of Jesus-followers to pray with, encourage, share struggles and celebrate triumphs.
While the long term plan is to make this a monthly meet-up, we will be kicking things off with a 6-week, weekly small group to study “The Real Jesus” together.
All course materials will be included so please let us know if you can attend. This is for anyone to join. You do not need to attend Vineyard Columbus to be involved.

We meet 7:30am to 9:00am Every Wednesday.
