A safe Place to Connect

Journeys offers a variety of Christ-centered life groups for adults and children dealing with life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. Leaders offer Christian H.E.L.P. -- Hope, Encouragement, Love and Prayers. At Journey’s, individual paths merge, forming mutual support as the journeys continue, immersed in God’s love and grace. 

“I will lead by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” ~Isaiah 42:16

Throughout this ministry, we explore the valuable journeys that many people from the Bible experience. By using examples from God’s Word, we can learn how to navigate our own struggles in life and look to Jesus for strength in all things. For grades K-5.


Journey’s Youth is a program designed to walk Jr. High and High School students through the same process outlined by Celebrate Recovery’s 8 Principles and the Christ-Centered 12 Steps.  This ministry is open to any student that struggles with any sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit and helps provide tools for students to process emotions, deal with past and current hurts, and find freedom from struggles within their lives. By focusing on the biblical principles of conviction, conversion, surrender, confession, amends, forgiveness, prayer, evangelism, and service students will deepen their relationship with God and experience emotional and spiritual healing.
