What we are about

or at least trying to be

At The Journey, we’re working to discover what it means to follow Jesus in this world. We refer to ourselves as a community of faith, love, and hope, and we’re passionately striving to live up to this biblical ideal. These values amp; convictions guide us as we pursue this goal.

 Our MissionHelping people follow Jesus.

 Our Vision: To become a community that lives by faith, is known by love, and is a voice of hope to the greater North Oakland County area, and beyond.
