Spiritual leadership is vital to the growth and movement of a church.  As a congregation, we are blessed with some men and women who provide the spiritual leadership gifts to the church. These men and women provide spiritual care, teaching, direction, wisdom, leadership, and so much more as they lead Journey Church to advance its mission: Build God's Church; Show God's Compassion; Reach God's World.
