Journey in the World
We plant churches nationally.
Journey was planted in China Spring to reach the people in this area. We are committed to expanding the kingdom through church planting. So, we send people out directly to plant churches.
Journey partners with Nexus (a church planting and planter care organization) and other churches to plant churches. There have been over 32 churches planted through the efforts of Nexus since 2005. Phil Claycomb is the Founder and Director. Nexus connects people, resources and places. Church Planter Care is also provided through Nexus.
Journey Lorena is our first direct church planting effort. Cory & Leslie Smith are the lead pastor team. They began meeting in their home in Lorena in July 2011. They quickly grew and are now meeting in the Lorena High School Commons area at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday. They officially launched January 29, 2012 and are now averaging 90-100.
Over the next couple of years, Journey Lorena grew, becoming healthy and fully independant. This growth allowed us to begin preparing to move into our second church plant. On Septermber 21st, 2014, we launched Journey Elgin in Elgin, TX.
