My Personality

It’s often said that growing in faith involves becoming a lifelong student of God. That’s true. But you also need to become a lifelong student of yourself. If God designed you uniquely, then the more you understand your own strengths and weaknesses, the better you can connect with your heavenly Father and use your gifts to glorify him.

This video-based exercise is designed to help you identify your core temperament. It’s not intended to give you a definitive and comprehensive picture of your temperament, but it is provides a great starting point for future discovery.

Watch: Stepping Up Stories – Rick Ricciardelli

Watch: Stepping Up Stories – Rick Ricciardelli

"I have discovered that there is no greater joy than watching God work through my finances. I get to see it here in Florida at our own church; I also get to see it in Haiti. Some people think my wife Maggie and I are crazy for spending so much time and money on mission trips to Haiti; but we are not. See, we found no better way than of building God’s kingdom and spreading His word. I have never experienced this much peace and satisfaction on all the things I purchased over the years; most of which are all gone. Giving has changed my life and changed my prospective on life. I love being generous because I know my God will use every penny to change others just like he change me."

2C – Hurricane Matthew

2C – Hurricane Matthew

Our community has come to know when there is a time of trouble, we are there for them. Instead of taking away the help, we just changed the focus." This is how 2C Director Cindy Tocci described the Journey's efforts to provide relief to those effected by Hurricane Matthew instead of canceling the previously scheduled 2C Fall Community Project. The community project is designed to show our neighbors how the Journey wants to make an impact in their neighborhood and their lives. What better way to show the love of Christ than to offer relief after a hurricane has passed.

Latena Petry's Story

Latena Petry's Story

Latena's life has been hard. Starting at a young age she had first-hand knowledge of pain. “One of my first memories was of being molested at the age of three by my half-brother who was seven years older than me. The abuse continued until I was nine years old,” Latena remembered. “I lived my childhood in fear because every day I would have to endure physical, mental, emotional or sexual abuse."

Hurricane Matthew was one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit this area in recent years. The storm's fierce winds and pelting rains hammered the nation of Haiti and then moved on to damage our area of Central Florida. Many of you have asked how you can help bring relief to the victims of Hurricane Matthew, both in Haiti and in our local communities. We want to give you an update and an opportunity to help.

Celebrating Sundays This Summer

Celebrating Sundays This Summer

Sundays This Summer was a step forward for our Sanford campus, with more people finding a place to worship God and connect with each other. From June 19 through September 4, we wanted to give anyone, no matter when they normally attended, a chance to worship, then have fun together. Instead of our normal two services at 9 and 11 am, we did something special and moved to one service at 10 am. We wanted this summer to be a time we grew deeper in community and connection. One service was the way to do it.

Review: 2C Challenge

During the month of July, the Journey focused on it's 2C Ministry and encouraged everyone to take a specific step each week to reach the local community. 2C stands for Compassion and Care—two ways the Journey is showing the love of Christ and changing lives each week of the year.

What does it mean to be prepared to worship?

What does it mean to be prepared to worship?
I wonder and dream often about what would happen within the church if the people of God came ready (prepared) to worship our God each week as a family. 

I was reading this morning in Exodus 19 about the people of God meeting with God to get His instructions (the 10 commandments). The level of preparation that went into this corporate gathering between God and His people struck me. The LORD commanded Moses to have the people "consecrate themselves" for 3 days to gear up for this encounter with Himself. 3 days. 72 hours of preparation. Think about that.
