Venture International was founded in 1986 by Leonard and Pauline Rodgers, then known as Venture Middle East. Their goal was to establish a small, yet effective, Christian agency to provide humanitarian relief and development to the poorest of the poor.
Cherrie Dickerson began her tenure with Venture International in 2003, having served bi-vocationally in business management and her local church as a youth and family director. Cherrie has a genuine passion for continuing the great work that Leonard and Pauline began nearly 30 years ago.
Venture International is an international Christian relief and development agency that serves as a bridge between those in need and those who want to help God's people through:
- Strategic Partnerships
- Special Projects
- Emergency Relief
- People Development
