Many of you knew us when we were known as Journey Church of Haines City. So, you may be wondering what the deal is with the new name.
Well, Journey Church started out a desire to serve the people in and around Haines City. We started doing that before we launched our Sunday morning services and we continued to do so while also having our Sunday morning gathering. In September of last year, as many of you know, we felt led to end our Sunday morning gather. So, on September 29th, 2019 we had our last Sunday morning worship service.
But, our desire to serve the people in and around Haines City did not end when our Sunday services ended. As I’ve thought about what the future meant for Journey Church and my own ministry I just couldn’t let go of the idea that my work here was not done. After prayer, thought, and counsel from some close Christian friends and family members, we decided that we would keep Journey Church open as a legal entity.
So, what does that mean? Well, strictly speaking, it means that, while our Sunday services ended, the organization never did. However, since we were no longer gathering, we felt that a name change might be in order. Since our mission has never really changed, then we thought that keeping the Journey name was a good move and, therefore, we became Journey Ministries.
We still don’t know what all God has in store for us or this ministry. But, we know that we are committed to serving the people in and around Haines City. So, check back often as we share more about the vision we believe God has given us for the coming months and for the latest on what we are doing right now.
