Venture Church - Hunt Club Campus
Despite great beginnings as an entertainment venue, the Hunt Club soon became a place of poor reputation and disrepair in Hattiesburg, Miss. Venture Church envisioned a new chapter for the location and purchased the property. What had been a place of brokenness would be a place of hope. Where lives were once destroyed, they could be rebuilt. Through collaboration and dedication, Live Design Group made the vision a reality.
