James Venable - Minister to Youth

I’ve been in youth ministry for 6 years, and love what I do!  God has been amazing at reminding me over and over of His call in my life!  I graduated from Mary Hardin Baylor and shortly after received a call to my first church where I served for over 5 years. My family and I joined the mission here at Northside in June of 2017.  I married my High School sweetheart, Lauren, and have to say she is definitely my better half!  We have a two year old little boy named Mav.  He has been an incredible blessing to our whole family, and has taught us a lot about patience the past 2 years.  I am very passionate about Gods word and the Gospel He has charged us with carrying out.  I place emphasis on building community, because I believe Jesus modeled this behavior with his disciples.  A few things you might not know about me: My pinky toe doesn't touch the ground when I stand up, I was the 5th chair tenor 1 in all state choir my senior year of High School, I love anything outdoors and lifting.   I look forward to all the Lord is going to do through the ministry here at Northside and am blessed to be a part of it!
