What to Expect

We are a non-denominational ministry that loves the presence of God and loves the people of God.  You can expect to encounter the love and presence of God through warm fellowship and intimate worship.  Pastor Ryan is a Word-based preacher, teaching the importance of understanding the finished work of the cross, healing the sick, raising the dead and casting out devils. The work of the Holy Spirit is alive and moving through every believer that is willing to co-labor with Him.  Also, we dress casually here at Journey Church so come as you are.
