Inspiring People to Live Big. Journey is a place for those who have given up on church or simply those who do not like church. Each week we seek to create environments that encourage people to live life to the fullest or as we say it, Live Big!

Journey Church began in January of 2006 and met weekly for the first five years at Lakota East High School. In the fall of 2010, an exciting opportunity presented itself. Journey Church merged with Hopewell Church of God. Hopewell had been in West Chester for decades and owned a 20,000 square foot facility on Barret Rd. As merger discussion began it quickly became clear that going forward, we were better together. It was a gift for both church communities. We believe God is only getting started with His plans in West Chester for Journey Church. It’s an exciting time to be a part of our church community. We hope you will consider checking us out some Sunday in the future.

Mission: to LIVE BIG ! We are committed to: The Great Commandment: the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind... Matthew 22:37 NLT The Great Commission: ...go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all of the commands I (Jesus) have given you. Matthew 18:19-20 NLT

Do you love a nice summer evening around the campfire? Come to the fire pit on the evening of June 30 to enjoy a time of hanging out, eating s’mores and singing campfire songs. If you want to bring your own instrument, great.

Are you excited to meet our Interim Pastor? Me too! Let’s have coffee and donuts before church on his first Sunday. Pastor Roy Maxwell will be teaching at Journey for the next three months. We’re thankful that Pastor Roy will be leading us during this transitionary period.

Hey Journey! We're excited to launch our own Journey Church FB Group. It's about connecting outside the walls of the church. Head over and join Journey Church People

Sunday was such a special day. We celebrated as a family the launch of our leader into a new adventure. Thank You and God Bless You, Mayeriks!

Thousands of years after its original writing, Paul's letter to the Ephesians still has so much to teach us. For the next three Sundays, Woody will help us take a deeper look at lessons in the letter to the Church at Ephesus.

God, You are mighty and able to conquer every challenge I face. Often, I forget to turn to you and your options are hidden from me, just like Gideon. Lord, you see hidden options. Give me your perspective and the courage to do your plan. Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Help us to see as you see and to have the faith to move forward.

Big Student Ministries

Excited for our students! Big Fun on Sunday!

Bring a friend!

Lord, so often I feel stuck, drowning below my safe line. Open my eyes to the faithful options You see, show me how I can write a different story, give me the courage to take the options You provide.

BSM just told us - LazerKraze tonight! Pass the word to your students!

Lord, help me to take a step this week. Lay A Zaccheus on my heart and help me make a step toward friendship. God may you multiply my efforts as only you can. Amen.

Lord, I get so angry. Help me to look deeper and find the cause. And help me to respond well, letting more things go, making space when I get angry, identifying when my anger is controlling me. Give me courage to address the true issues in my heart and in my life. Do a Holy work in me.

9 is the new 10 starting Sunday! #SpringForward #DaylightSavings

Cleaning up. Cleaning out.

“Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:4-5
Lord, you are mighty and powerful. You have created us to work together and we struggle to be unified. We neglect to step up because we’re afraid of being too little. Or we keep others from doing their part because we feel like we’re the best person for the job. But neither is your design for us. Help us to balance and to work together, more toward where you think of us. Help us to be unified as your people, moving closer to you and closer to one another. Amen.

Lord, thank you for giving me a part in Your Kingdom. May your love, and not my own works, show through me. May I humbly celebrate unity with other kingdom workers. Help me to see humility in others so I can learn to be more like them. Root out pride in me and in my influences so that you through me. I want to work hand and hand with the body of Christ to tell the world about Your love for us.

Jesus faced rejection so we could find acceptance with God. When we push Him away, we miss out on his Blessing, his Acceptance, sharing his love with others. It’s too easy to be like the innkeeper and say NO, there’s no room for you here today. But, Father, what you want to hear from is yes. Lord, this week, the month, this year, help me to say YES to you in new ways, have a heart open to your leading. And Father, may this open mindset snowball in my life and in those around me.

One armed gift wrapping. Our 456 kids are ready to help during the holidays! 🤣🎁
