About Journey Students

We believe that students are a part of the church. They are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today. As such, we do not believe that students should be largely segregated from the rest of the church. At Journey we do not have a “youth church” or a “youth group.” What we do have is a Student Ministry which seeks to provide adequate and appropriate environments for our students to help them follow Jesus. 

We do recognize that students have a particular set of needs and interests that we have a responsibility to meet with the understanding that contextualization is necessary with every generation and every culture. But we are not a separate entity simply owned and operated by Journey Church. We are Journey Church, and our vision, mission, and goals are the same. We want to help people follow Jesus. The strategy is connect, grow, & serve. So as a Student Ministry we seek to provide adequate and appropriate environments for our students to connect, grow, and serve.

What kind of church is Journey Church?
Journey Church is an independent non-denominational church. Our body of
believers is diverse and comes from many denominations and backgrounds.
Journey does partner with denominations, groups, and organizations that
offer vital help in assisting us to accomplish our mission. For
example, we partner with the Southern Baptist Convention for the
purposes of world missions. We also partner with the Willow Creek
Association and the Fellowship Church Network in the area of leadership
development.

What are we all about at Journey Church?
Our mission is to help people follow Jesus. We define a follower of Jesus as someone who gets to know Him and responds.

What can I expect at Journey?
You can expect a
group of people that will love you and welcome you for who you are. You
will see all different types of people from all different walks of life
looking to move forward in their journey with Christ. You will find
worship that is alive and relevant, teaching that is helpful and
inspiring, and an environment where you can come as you are and be
accepted for who you are. In short, you will find a place where you can
be comfortable just being you.

The Lion and The Lamb

See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.
Then
I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain.
Revelation 5:5, 6

In reading the devotions of Jonathan Edwards this morning I was suddenly struck with the simultaneous majesty and abject humbles of Jesus. As you read through this, take time to pause and reflect on the excellency of Christ.

    We see that Christ is in the text compared to both (the Lion and the Lamb), because the diverse excellencies of both wonderfully meet in him.

    There do meet in Jesus Christ infinite highness and infinite condescension. Christ as he is God, is infinitely great and high above all. He is higher than the kings of the earth: for he is King of kings and Lord of lords. He is higher than the heavens, and higher than the highest angels of heaven. He is so high that he is infinitely above any need, above our reach that we cannot be profitable to him, and above our conceptions that we cannot comprehend him.
    Christ is the creator and great possessor of heaven and earth: he is sovereign Lord of all; he rules over the whole universe, and doth whatsoever pleaseth him; his knowledge is without bound; his wisdom is perfect, and what none can circumvent; his power is infinite, and none can resist him; his riches are immense and inexhaustible; his majesty infinitely awful.

BUT

    Christ is one of infinite condescension. None are so low or inferior, but Christ's condescension is sufficient to take a gracious notice of them.
    His condescension is great enough to become their friend. It is great enough to become their companion, to unite their souls to him in spiritual marriage. It is great enough to take their nature upon him, to become one of them, that he may be one with them. Yea, it is great enough to abase himself yet lower for them, even to expose himself to shame and spitting; yea, to yield up himself to an ignominious death for them. And what act of condescension can be conceived of greater?

How do I even respond to such a one as this? This morning silence was my only response. Then humility. Then worship.
