CONNECT+DISCIPLESHIP

Life can’t be done alone. The church is a place for people to connect with God and others. We strive to be a place where you can find friends to support and encourage you along the journey.

We are a gathering of what the Bible calls disciples. Disciples are people who want to know Him, study His teaching and apply His character and love in their own lives. If church were a restaurant, discipleship is the main course. That’s why we are committed to providing tools and opportunities for you to pursue Jesus and grow to be more like Him.

JOIN THE FAMILY THROUGH MEMBERSHIP

Unlike membership at a gym or a country club, church membership is relational. It’s an individual commitment to be a part of the whole church body. Together, we pursue the unique mission that God has given Journey Bible Church. There are four steps to becoming a member of Journey Bible Church.

The membership process includes a 3-week membership class called Join the Journey, a complete membership application and an interview with two of our elders. C contact John Blackburn regarding becoming a member of Journey Bible Church.

SMALL GROUPS FOR ADULTS

Discipleship works best when we learn alongside others. Life Groups meet in homes and workplaces around the area to study the bible and develop and nurture relationships with other Christ-followers – because we all need someone in our corner as we live life. Interested in connecting in a Life Group near you? Contact Colin Murphy.

Life Group leaders and members can now access your group information and study resources through the Groups portal.

Take advantage of our partnership with Right Now Media for additional resources.
