Take Action

We are all made for a mission. God wants us all to share His love where we are. As a student, mother, teacher, salesman, manager, or whatever you do, God wants you to reach out to the people in your life. That might mean inviting a friend to church or showing love to those in need around you.

God invites you to participate in the greatest cause in history – His Kingdom. The opportunities for normal, everyday Christians to become involved in missions around the world or reaching out to communities at home are limitless. You were saved to serve and made to go out and spread the Good News.

Our Outreach, Missions, and Ministries teams are here to help you discover great ways that you can share your faith both locally and globally.  “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15) 

The Journey was founded on the love of community and outreach. The church is bigger than just our four walls and our committment to supporting programs that reach beyond our walls is shown by our actions. We give 10% of our tithes and contributions to outreach and missional programs. The following are some programs and missions we support - just click the title for more information.

 

Food Pantry

Started in 2011 by one of our own community members, our Food Pantry's mission is to increase access to food to hungry people within our community. We provide food directly to the hungry on the second Saturday of each month. The pantry is operated by volunteers and funded by our tithes and offerings. Each month we travel to downtown Los Angeles to the Christian Food Centers, where we purchase two hundred pounds of food for $125. We then bring it back to our facility, sort and prepare the food for distribution the next day. Isaiah 58:10 (NLT): "Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon."

How can you get involved or help this cause?

World Vision

More than 22,000 children die every day — most from preventable causes such as hunger, malaria, diarrhea, measles, and pneumonia. World Vision is a global child sponsorship program that provides a child with sustainable access to appropriate life-changing basics like nutritious food, clean water, healthcare, and education. Child sponsorship also helps families and communities lift themselves out of poverty by providing assistance like job training, business coaching, small loans, and agricultural support.
