Our Main Ministry Opportunities at Journey
The greatest among you will be your servant. Jesus – Matt 20:26
At Journey, we take seriously the opportunity to be servants of the Most High God, and feel honored that Jesus would use us in His work. So we’ve tried to make sure every person is able to contribute to the family and participate on a team. We’ve also learned from our volunteers and leaders what basic disciplines make for a successful team, and have encouraged both leaders and team members to commit to those disciplines. Below is an outline of those commitments we make to each other as part of the Journey Team. We encourage every person to model these commitments, as a demonstration of the love of Christ to Jesus and to their church family. It’s just our way of loving each other – one at a time!
