About

Michael Massa

Michael Massa was raised in a strong Christian family with consistent parents whose confession of Christ was lived out in everyday ways. This provided a healthy base from which the family could pursue the Lord.

Michael graduated magna cum laude from Tennessee Technological University in 75’ with a Bachelor’s degree in History. He graduated from Christ for the Nations Institute (CFNI) in 77’ and served there as a worship leader and teacher until 81’. From 1982- 2010, he was pastor at Church of The King in Dallas.

He has ministered in 25 nations, composed worship songs for Integrity Music and authored three books. In 2020 he concluded 12 years as an adjunct professor at CFNI.

Venture Heights is the result of a vision the Lord gave him and his wife, Nancy. The desire to effectively make disciples motivates him to provide the ministry that has resulted in the long-lasting and beneficial impact in people’s lives for the last 45 years. Michael and Nancy have four children and four ‘grands’.

It is their dream to train leaders through Venture Heights and strengthen you in the Lord’s assignment and purpose for your life.

“I believe all true leadership is to be established in a “supernatural living union” with and in the Lord. Leadership ought to be robust, servant-hearted, fearless, and filled with an obvious divine vitality.”

Many leaders in all kinds of vocations are personally aware of the Lord’s hand on them.  The problem is that they do not know how to connect with and draw on that and then see the supernatural hand of God expressed in their lives. They sincerely long for that kind of fruit, and it is a problem far more common than you might imagine. 

Often our decisions are made with the sincere hope that it is right and wise, but many do not know for sure that it was the best pathway. The Lord wants you to be competent and confident in hearing Him. Venture Heights will help you discover and develop the spiritual foundation to connect with His voice and hand on you.

I have known Michael Massa since the late 1970’s, he has had a profound impact on my wife’s and my life. I have met few people over the past 40 plus years who have the intense integrity and joyful heart that Michael has. I have seen him stand in Godly grace in the best of time and in the most stressful and evil situations. His teaching is drawn out of a very deep well of wisdom that comes from a strong life of prayer and study of God’s word. I would walk through any spiritual battle with Michael.
