The NExT Initiative

NExT is a 20-year initiative to raise the funds necessary to secure our future, double our ministry effectiveness, invest in a permanent ministry facility, position our church to respond to any BIG ministry opportunities that God might put before us, and continue to reach the people of Metro New York City for Jesus Christ.

Securing the Future of The Journey Church

The goal of the NExT Initiative is $20 million over the next 20 years (by December 31, 2042) – with an initial goal of $2 million by the celebration of our 21st Anniversary as a church in the Fall of 2023.

Here’s what we are asking you to do to be a part of the vision & legacy of The Journey Church...

(1) Pledge

It's NExT Pledge Month at The Journey.  Will you pray and allow God to stretch you to make an initial 5-Year Pledge to the NExT Initiative to help us reach our goal?  Make your pledge on faith based on what you believe God can do in your life.

(2) Give

Make a gift to the NExT Initiative today and help us reach our God-sized Year One goal of $2 million.  This gift will count toward your 5-Year personal pledge to NExT.  You can give by Credit, Debit, Paypal, Cash App, Venmo or Google Pay.  Just choose NExT Initiative in the drop-down menu or mark it in the memo line.  You can also give by text.  Just text the amount you want to give + the word "Next" to 212.730.8300 (i.e. text "50 Next" to 212.730.8300 to give $50 to NExT).

Why Now?

This year The Journey Church is celebrating our 20th year as a church here in New York City (2002-2022). As we reflect on all that God has done in and through our church – including over 3,000 baptisms, countless lives changed, thousands of needs met and millions of people shown God’s love in meaningful ways – it is time to dream big about what God might have in store for the NExT 20 years.

If not now, when? God has blessed our church and we have grown spiritually and numerically. Now is the time to dream big dreams and to begin preparing The Journey for ministry in NYC for generations to come. And a permanent ministry facility can be a big part of that.
“The people rejoiced over the offerings, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the LORD.”
- 1 Chronicles 29:9
