Pastoral Guidance & Support
Proverbs 11:14, "Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers."
At Journey Church, our desire is to help those who call Journey their home with the needed pastoral guidance and support to guide them through life, whether big or small challenges. With that in mind, our pastoral staff does open itself to meeting with those who need extra care, and we strive to do so in a way that honors God and truly guides people into their next steps.
With that in mind, when someone asks to meet with a pastor, prior to arranging the meeting, we require you to fill out the form below and let us know what situation or circumstances you need guidance and biblical wisdom for. we require this so that we can pray, research solutions, and hit the ground running when we meet.
Due to often times demanding schedules, we arrange pastoral guidance based on availability of our pastors.
There are times where we will refer you to a professional counselor due to our own limitations. In those cases, we will do everything we can to help you take that step.
There are times where instead of meeting personally, we will choose instead to first connect by phone or email.
In no instance will a pastoral team member meet with a member of the opposite sex without someone else being present. In cases where this cannot be arranged, any meeting will be rearranged or canceled.
Please note, while we practice privacy, we do not guarantee confidentiality. As pastors we do not have "client/attorney privilege," so if something illegal is presented to us, we WILL immediately contact the police.
