Our Mission

Journey Church exists to help the people of Crawford County begin the journey of following Jesus, and then to take the next steps in their journey.  Jesus commanded the church to "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you..." (Matthew 28:19)

 

To accomplish our mission, we at Journey Church have chosen to focus on three priorities:

 

The Lost.  We believe that God wants us to reach out to people that are not currently a part of a church family, so we try to design our worship service & programs at Journey church to appeal to those people who have not yet made a decision to follow Jesus, the spiritually lost (Luke 15:1-32).  

 

The Least.  We believe that God wants us to care for individuals and families that are currently struggling to have their physical and material needs met, so we endeavor to give benevolently to those in need and create programs in our church that meet those needs (Matthew 25:31-48).  

 

The Leaders.  We believe that in order to accomplish our mission, we need to help people grow and realize their potential as leaders in the church, in their families, in the community and in business, so we give individuals opportunities to grow in their faith and character (Philippians 2:12).
