To fund The Journey’s 2020 Benevolence Ministry to help those in our church facing a financial crisis or emergency.
We are a church that comes alongside those in our church who are struggling financially and emotionally. Since 2005, our church has served hundreds of individuals and families during their time of greatest need. The Benevolence Ministry has allowed us to come alongside people in distress due to difficult financial times, a loss of a job/apartment or a death in the family.
To provide quality Christian counseling to families and individuals in our church who need biblically-based guidance or emotional support.
We are committed to being able to provide help for those who need professional Christian counseling. Dozens of marriages have been strengthened in the last few years through Christian counseling because we were able to help.
Because of your generous giving to the special offering, so far in 2019, we have been able to approve all valid requests for benevolence and counseling funding. We look forward to meeting these needs again in 2020!
To teach the next generation about Jesus in Journey Kidz
We’re a church that loves to invest in children and families. In 2019, we saw our Journey Kidz ministry expand in so many different ways and we made big improvements (including our upgraded kids space on the Upper West Side and Upper East Side). And as we grow – in 2020 we want to continue investing in and expanding our ministry to children and their families.
We’ve designed a fantastic experience for children on Sunday in all four of our locations. And we’re planning improvements for next year that will help take this ministry to the next level and continue to spiritually invest in our families. When you give to the SHOWING WE CARE Special Offering – you help strengthen our families and assist them in raising their children in a godly way and assist our team in teaching our kids about Jesus in creative and engaging ways.
To continue to enhance our 4 Journey Manhattan locations and other new ministry initiatives that God provides.
As of November 2019 – The Journey is a church with 4 vibrant locations in Manhattan – Union Square, Upper West, Upper East, and our 6pm service in Midtown. As 2020 approaches, we hope to enhance the Sunday worship experience at all of our locations through improvements to our equipment, signage and other important strategic upgrades – as well as provide any needed equipment for our newest location – Journey – Union Square.
In addition, we also want to continue to offer the best opportunity for the people of New York City to become fully-developing followers of Jesus! To do that we want to use the best resources, offer the greatest opportunities to grow spiritually, and create unique and creative settings to consider a relationship with Jesus. In 2020 we will need to stay ahead in our equipment, facility setup, transportation, and resources to see this happen. We want to be prepared to respond to any new ministry opportunities that God presents us in the coming year!
