2019 in review
What a year 2019 was! When we dedicate ourselves to God’s mission in our community, we see life-change take place. We've witnessed hundreds of people taking Next Steps, and as a church we are taking big steps to see the kingdom of God expand through our Sherwood campus. God has seen fit to use our church in this community to make His name famous, and we are so glad you have chosen to join us in that mission. We have continually seen God’s faithfulness as we carry out what He has called us to do, and we are confident that He will show Himself faithful to you as you continue to trust Him.
This report highlights some great numbers and figures from the past year, but even more meaningful are the stories of life-change you’ll see that show the true impact behind those numbers. I wish we could tell every story, because every story is important. The stories inside put on display the “why” behind what we do week in and week out. Our prayer is that these will impact you in a major way and that you’ll understand the role you can play in seeing people come to know Jesus in 2020.
What you're about to read is another example of the favor of God in our church and I can't wait to see what He's going to do next. We are excited about the changes coming in the next few months that will allow us to share the dangerous message of Jesus Christ with more people and take care of our volunteers. It's going to be another year of great change as we continue to engage people! I pray we never lose focus of the most important thing – the gospel. Thanks for all you do!
Engaging people in the process of knowing Jesus Christ.
What we Learned
Life-change happens when people encounter Jesus Christ.
At Journey, we take great care to create and implement policies and procedures to ensure the highest standard of stewardship with our finances. We set an annual budget from which we maintain day-to-day business expenses and ministry opportunities within the areas we believe God has called us to reach. From our in-house staff to our finance team and core leaders, we are constantly striving to maintain a level of excellence and become even better stewards of the funds with which we’ve been entrusted.
2019 was an absolutely incredible year! We watched life-change take place as we baptized over 100 people, we began work on our new campus in South Augusta, and we took part in an incredible night that celebrated those in our community with special needs.
God has proven Himself faithful and continuously shows up opportunities where we, as a church, can take our Next Steps. As we move into 2020, we want to continue to be good stewards of the financial gifts that you, and ultimately God, entrust us with. We are so excited to watch God continue to move and use Journey in our community and throughout the world.
