On The Journey

Pastor Michael

Proverbs 29:18 says:  “If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.”  It’s exciting to me to see what God is doing in the life of Journey!  After over a year of prayer and research and conversations, there has been a clear sense of discernment of the direction God has revealed for our church!   And if our church attends to it faithfully, I’m certain we will most certainly be blessed!


The 2025 Strategic Plan for our church was presented in worship on Sunday.  It’s both inspiring and challenging!  It lays out Journey’s vision and priorities and goals for the next six years.  Click here to download a copy of the strategic plan.


Every person who is a part of our Journey family is urged to commit to the fulfillment of what God is leading us to accomplish as we seek boldly and with genuine commitment to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to transform lives by the power of Christ’s love!  As we dream big and live generously, God is calling us to a faith life of adventure and creativity that is much bigger than we often imagine!


Already people have started to “step up” and say they want to help in leading some of the new ministry initiatives envisioned in the strategic plan—for example, Celebrate Recovery and DivorceCare and GriefShare!


Adopting a strategic plan is a vital step for our church.  The next step is developing teams of people who will champion and guide the accomplishment of the plan! 


I ask that you read over the entire strategic plan.  Pray over it.  Ask God to show you how you are to actively participate in the fulfillment of this vision God has given to Journey.  Then call or email or write on a Connection Card that you’d like to be contacted about your involvement.


I look forward to each of us saying “Yes, God, I want to:  Connect People, Strengthen Families, Develop Leaders, Empower People, Leverage Resources!”
