Not a class; a relationship
Journey groups are not a Christian Education class or a typical small group.They are a ministry that is intentional, relational, transformational, and missional. Each group is led by a mature and equipped leader who enters into a committed relationship from September to May of each year to help members grow in Christ. The leader is focused on laboring in the lives of a few with the intention of imparting their life, God’s Word and the gospel in such a way as to see participants become mature and equipped followers of Christ, committed to doing the same in the lives of others.
Not for the spiritually elite; but for all eager for significant growth
Journey group participants are at all different stages of spiritual development: from those that are brand new in their faith to those who have walked with Christ for years. Participants are selected who are eager for significant growth in their Christian life. We call it being full of "F.A.I.T.H.":
Faithful - Journey Groups are most beneficial to those who have shown themselves faithful in their walks already.
Available - A meaningful and helpful relationship takes time.
Interdependent - One doesn't need to be an extrovert, but willing to build relationships of trust that allow members to deal with real weaknesses and needs.
Teachable- Questions are welcomed and the norm in Journey Groups. Significant growth, though, requires us to be eager to see what we are missing and where our blind spots might be.
Humble - Participants who see they have much room to grow are those most likely to do so!
Interested in learning more?
We are always prayerfully looking for the people God is at work in! Leaders spend the summer prayerfully forming their groups for the coming year. If you would like to learn more, watch the video below to hear from some of our participants. You can also complete the interest form below. Because Journey Groups are a relationship at heart, spots are limited, this is not a sign-up form. It is also intended really for those who are MCC members or are seriously considering becoming a committed part of our spiritual family. Our Journey Group leaders will do our best to be in touch with you to discus your interest in life-on-life missional discipleship.
