Dear Journey Family,

God has been doing a great work through our church!  As we look back on the first 8 years of our church, we have seen over 1,400 people make a decision to follow Christ, we have baptized hundreds of people, and through our partnership with Boca Helping Hands, we have served thousands of people in need in our community.

Now, as we have completed Phase 1 of our Capital Campaign called Daring Faith and opened our Ministry and Worship Center, it's time to look forward and prepare for what God has next for our church.

In order to be faithful to our calling and to maximize the opportunities that God has opened to us, in October 2019 we as a church are launching the Building For Life initiative.

Lead Pastor,
Jason Hatley & Family

The Building For Life Initiative

Building for Life is a 36-month initiative to raise the funds necessary to secure our future, invest in our facilities, and continue to reach our community for Christ.  The goal of the Building For Life initiative is $630,000 between now and October 2022.

(Jesus) “I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
- Matthew 16:18

The Four Areas of Building For Life:

Beautify Our Property

God has blessed us with an incredible church property in the heart of our community. And while we have completed the work on the inside of our property, the Building For Life initiative will address needed work to the exterior of our property including painting our church building, installing a new sign on the side of our building to increase our visibility and impact in the community, and renewing our parking lot to provide a warm welcome to every person who comes on campus.

Secure Our Future by Paying Down Our Debt

From the beginning, we have known that Daring Faith would be Phase 1 of a two-phase initiative for the future of our church. Daring Faith allowed us to move forward with the purchase and renovation of our Ministry and Worship Center. And now that we have completed the work and moved into our building, it’s time for us to secure our future in this building by paying down our debt.

The opportunities before us have never been bigger!  God is working in our church!  And, in order for us to sustain and expand our ministry, we must meet our financial obligations by paying for our new Ministry Center.

“Our hope is that as we help your faith grow larger, you’ll be able to help this ministry to you grow larger, too.”
- 2 Corinthians 10:15

Build Our Future Baptistry

One of the most scenic features of our Ministry and Worship Center is the outdoor fountain and patio area. From the moment we purchased this property, the goal has been to turn the fountain into a fully-functional outdoor baptistry that would allow us to baptize new believers any day of the year, all year long.

In its current state, the fountain is too shallow, too narrow, and does not provide a stairway entrance. Through the Building For Life initiative, we will completely renovate the fountain to create a beautiful baptistry where the people who are coming to Christ – many of them our friends and family members – can take this important step of spiritual growth to be baptized.

In addition to the outdoor baptistry, the covered area on the patio needs to be replaced. The previous owner of this property allowed termites to permanently damage the covering. A new, more sturdy and modern covering will replace the existing wooden covering.  Also, the patio does not provide proper drainage which, in a storm or hurricane, could allow water to build up and enter the Worship Center.  Through the baptistry and patio renovations, we will fix this drainage issue to protect our church building.

"For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead."  - Colossians 2:12

Support a New Cross-Cultural Regional Missions Church

When The Journey began in 2011, we were blessed to have other churches who supported us financially to help us launch our new church. Since that time, over 1,400 people have come to faith in Christ, we have baptized over 350 people, served our community and made an impact for the cause of Christ here in South Florida. None of that would have been possible without the support of our partnering churches.

We are a church who believes in missions and church planting, so through the Building for Life initiative, we will identify a new cross-cultural church starting in our region, and come alongside of them to provide assistance as they launch their new church to reach people that we will not be able to reach.

(Jesus) “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
- Matthew 28:19-20
