Purpose #2: Sharing the Love of Jesus with a Lost and Broken World

  • By continuing our partnership with The Moscow Seminary to help them equip and train new pastors to share the gospel in one of the most unreached areas of the world – the nations of the former Soviet Union (Russia, Ukraine, and more).

  • By reaching the people of NYC with the love of Jesus through outreach, Servant Evangelism and other creative evangelism efforts across our city.

Purpose #3: Serving Those in Need in our City and Around the World

  • By continuing our missions partnership in South Africa to help children living in poverty and impacted by COVID/HIV/AIDS through First City Baptist Church and their growing Christian school – Hope Schools.

Purpose #4: Supporting Our Journey Church Family by Meeting Spiritual & Physical Needs

  • By investing in the next generation through the spiritual growth of our children, teens and families as we reach and serve more families, children and teenagers than ever before.

  • By funding the 2023 Benevolence & Counseling Ministry of the church (to assist those facing a personal or family crisis or emergency and need assistance).

  • Providing necessary upgrades for our in-person services in Times Square and Church Online and funding for any new ministry initiatives.

Why Now?

The Journey Church began as a church here in New York City in 2002.  As we reflect on all that God has done in and through our church – including over 3,200 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 and beyond.

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
