WHAT IS THE JOURNEY?
WHO NEEDS THE JOURNEY?
Do I use food, sex/pornography, relationships, alcohol, or drugs to cope with life's problems?
Do I love someone struggling with destructive behaviors such as pornography, gambling, drugs, or alcohol?
Do I have trouble setting limits?
Do I sacrifice my identity, desires, or needs to make others feel good about themselves?
Do I act kind on the outside but feel bitter on the inside?
Do I raise my voice to get my way?
Do I struggle with body image?
Do I know the right thing to do but don't do it?
Do I know something is wrong but do it anyway?
Do I live with someone who abuses me physically, sexually, or emotionally or feel the continued effects from past trauma and abuse?
Do I want to have a stronger, deeper, more fulfilling relationship with Jesus?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, welcome to The Journey. You will learn you are not alone when you share your hurt, habit, or hang up with those in The Journey. The most common response you will hear is, "Me, too."
The Journey is a group designed to help hurting people. It is based on biblical teaching rather than psychological theory, and it is made up of regular people just like you and me--people who are ready to embark on a journey toward wholeness.
HOW DOES THE JOURNEY WORK?
The first thing everyone needs to know is it's anonymous and safe. It is led by a team of committed individuals who have gone through the recovery process. These leaders are not mental health professionals; they are regular folks willing to share their experiences, strengths, and hopes as they walk the journey with you.
WHAT IF I NEED MORE?
After you have attended The Journey for a while, you have the opportunity to join a Step Study Group. It is here that you will go deeper into the recovery process. This is when the real, lasting changes will start to happen.
The Journey is currently on hiatus, but will relaunch Fall 2019.
A typical Journey meeting consists of a Large Group and a Small Open-Share Group. Large Group is a time to set aside the stress of life and come together as one large group for prayer, praise and worship, and teaching. Small Open-Share Groups are divided by gender and provide a place for each participant to connect with other members. It is a time to share our thoughts and experiences concerning the Large Group Teaching.
