Greater

November 24-December 16

It takes faith to be part of a movement of God, because faith is how God chooses to move His people forward into the GREATER things He has for them. God is working at the Journey. In 2018, more people have taken steps of faith than in any other time in the life of our Journey family. And yet, as amazing as 2018 has been, God has even greater things ahead for us. God is writing a unique story through the ministry of the Journey and He wants you to be a part of it. God wants you to join Him in the greater things He’s actively doing, rather than waiting for Him to do something on your behalf. God will do even greater things among us in 2019--that is not the question. The question is, will you move past your fears to be a part of it? Will you choose to step into the GREATER things happening around you? Join us, for the final series of 2018, as we set our gaze upon what our God has for us coming in the year ahead.

Abide

October 27-November 18

Jesus makes this pointed statement to His followers in John 15, that apart from Him, we can do nothing. Jesus could not have been more blunt in explaining the reality of how badly we need Him if we truly desire to live the fulfilling life He has promised us. The life that Jesus Christ invites His followers into is one of abundance and adventure. It is a life that is overflowing with love, joy, peace and goodness. Yet, so many people insist on living the Christian life apart from the power of Jesus Christ, and wonder why their walk with God seems so burdensome and weary—dried up and frail. The only way to experience the power of God is to abide in Him. What does it look like to walk in such intimacy with the Lord that your life is overflowing with godliness and power? We are invited to abide in Christ; we are invited to make our home in Him, and when we do, God promises to fill us with His Spirit and direct us towards His satisfying, abundant plan for our lives. Join us as we begin this series that will teach we can Abide.

How To Ruin Your Life

September 8-October 21

There are countless books out there telling us how to make our lives great or how to follow these 10 easy steps to the life we’ve been dreaming of. Instead, what if there was a guide detailing exactly how to do the opposite? What type of invaluable insight do you think you would find in this one book? This book could have the potential to offer a futuristic look at choices we make and where they take us. It could shed some light on how our impatience and selfishness can put us on the opposite side of greatness. It would be like having our very own map of what not to do if we want joy, peace and satisfaction in our lives. God has given us a perfect example, of this map, in the life of Saul. And we want you to join us as we uncover exactly how to ruin your life.

Prayerology

August 18-September 1

Inside all of us dwells a deep desire to be part of something greater and grander than ourselves. We all hope to influence the world in an extraordinary way and to leave a lasting impact once we’ve gone. This feeling isn’t there by coincidence; it is there because God has placed a specific calling on each of our lives. He has asked us to live a life that is radically different as a response to what he has done for us. Christ’s work on the cross sets us free to live with incredible hope, confidence and a purpose that is greater than any momentary pleasure or horrific suffering this world could possibly bring. Because of this promise, we can’t wait to dig into the book of First Peter and discover the ultimate and fulfilling aim that can be ours, when we know exactly who we are called to be.

It's About To Get Real

April 21–May 6
We all know the feeling, the feeling we get when we are smack dab in the middle of a messy situation. When it’s nearly impossible to hold our tongues, keep our cool or muster an artificial smile for one more second. These feelings are waiting for us right below the surface of an unacknowledged hurt, a heated conversation or a situation that seems to have zero chance of resolution. And, it’s at this moment, when we are pushed to the edge, that we have to face it, stand up to the tension, get messy and meet the conflict head on. But, we don’t want to simply charge in with harsh words and demands; we want to get to the bottom of the issue. Because, ultimately, what we are really looking for, is peace and harmony in our relationships. If you’ve ever been there or felt like this, make sure to join us for our new relationship series as we dive head first into the mess and find out how to handle life when It’s About to Get Real.

40 Days {2018} • the Invitation

February 17 – March 25

Jesus’ invitation to follow Him was, and still is, an invitation into a relationship. A relationship that is built on Christ’s love and desire to be with you and know you. Before you clean up your life, do better, know more or reach some level of perceived religious standing; Christ just wants to be with you! With this invitation Jesus asks us to leave behind our old way of life to experience amazing peace and ultimate joy. But, this relationship is also marked by self-denial and loving obedience. His call is one that is not necessarily audible but goes straight to the heart. The question is, will you listen? Will you answer yes to the invitation?

Centered

January 6 – February 11

Do you ever feel like no matter what you do, life always has a way of becoming unbalanced? Whether it’s work, family, friends or our own personal responsibilities, when we are busy, things can become off-balance pretty quickly. It’s not that we intended for things to be this way, but somehow we always get there. And at some point we realize that our priorities are completely out of order. This imbalance can cause us to become trapped in the urgency of today and we find ourselves longing to get back to a healthy balance. Join us on the weekend of January 6th as we discover what we can do to bring some clarity to the stress, frustration and panic we experience when our lives just aren’t centered.

Why God

November 16 – December 17

I think most of us could agree that out beliefs have the power to no only define who we are but also influence the trajectory of our lives. If we believe this is true, then wouldn’t it be imperative for us to know what we believe and why we believe it, especially when it comes to God?

Worth It

Over the past year God has challenged us, as the Journey, to step up in some big ways because he wanted to show up and do immeasurably more through us. Stepping up has been fun and amazing but other times it was down right tough. Through these ups and downs, we ultimately come away celebrating, not because of our strength or accomplishments, but because of God’s goodness.

IDK

I. Don’t. Know. Those three small words are words no one likes saying, because not knowing is a frustrating and scary place to be. It makes us wonder if things would be easier if we knew everything about our lives RIGHT NOW.

The Book of Mark

Biographies are written about people who have influenced the course of history or have done something spectacular. Countless accounts have outlined the lives of amazing heroes, scientific geniuses and creative revolutionaries. However, there is one biography that not only tells a story, but was also penned specifically to break the rules and push back boundaries.

Church Is A Verb

What comes to mind when you hear the word church? Maybe it’s a little wooden building with a steeple or maybe it’s creaking pews and a list of the Ten Commandments? But, what if the church is something else entirely? What if church isn’t a place or a building?
