Missions and Outreach

Journey Church exists to reach people who are disconnected from God and lead them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Missions and Outreach

At Journey Church we believe it is about expanding God’s Kingdom. Jesus came to seek out and to save the lost. We have a passion for our community, our nation, and our world. By sharing the love of Christ in practical ways, we desire to see people who are disconnected from God and church to be connected with God. We desire to be involved in God’s activity wherever he leads. Our vision is not just to grow Journey Church, but also to be a part of reproducing his church throughout the world.

Current Missions:

Journey Church has partnered with Compassion International to help fight poverty and hunger in Africa. Guest speaker, Owen Githanga, a graduate of Compassion testified to the wonders of God. How through Compassion, God worked miracles in his life and his family.  

As of September 2022, 162 children have been sponsored in a remote part of Ethiopia. We are excited about the gospel going forward and lives forever changed.

Local Ministry

There are many amazing ministries in our community. We have partnered with several of them to share the hope of God’s love to our neighbors. We also have opportunities throughout the year to bless those in our community with simple acts of kindness. It may be giving away a Hershey’s bar at valentines or a Popsicle in the park during July. We want to be a church that is out loving our community and letting people know how much God loves them. We want to be there for people in the good times, so when the hard times come they know we are here for them.
