Journey Christian Church

Journey is a church that has been around for just over 60 years. As a faith family we uphold the Bible as God's inspired, inerrant and sufficient Word. Our greatest aspiration is to glorify God to the World through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to be a church that affectionately follows Jesus and carries out his mission, revealed in Matthew 28:18-20. This is our mission for the glory of God, the good of others and the fullness of our joy as those who follow in our Savior's example and call.
We are at a very important point in our history at Journey, as we seek to clarify and more fervently pursue our mission as a faith family. We believe that one of the vital ways we must pursue this is by working to raise up the next generation of our youth to radically follow Jesus as a member of the body of Christ, His church. Hence, we are prayerfully looking for a Youth Pastor to take on this call and assist us as a church to take on this good work.
