Journey Church, a non-denominational community of faith in Roanoke, Virginia, is seeking the person God is calling to become one of our pastors.
Journey is composed of imperfect people seeking to connect with Jesus and with one another in life-transforming ways. This is how people in the Journey family have described our church . . .
Accepting. Loves, welcomes and encourages people of any race, socioeconomic level, marital status, age, spiritual background; does not embarrass or condemn or beat people down emotionally; is not cliquish.
Celebrating. Has incredibly talented musical, multi-media and dramatic persons leading in worship.
Discipling. Leads unchurched people to Jesus; connects them in meaningful community for learning and fellowship; intentionally moves them from wherever they are spiritually toward becoming more fully devoted followers of Christ.
Missional. Tithes to missions initiatives and serves in the community where there are needs, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.
Transforming. Empowers people to use their gifts in transforming lives for Christ, always ready to be the hands and feet of Jesus, seeking no reward or recognition.
Truth-telling. Biblically-centered teaching; sensitive in a relevant way to issues facing people in today’s world; does not back away from hard questions; shares the gospel message to people who may have never heard it before; does not compromise what’s expected of Christ-followers to serve and develop spiritually.
