006 The Journey Online Podcast | Why Partnering Matters at Journey w/ Chris Denning

The Journey Online Podcast

If you’ve been around Journey for any length of time, you’ve heard us talking about Partnering.  We don’t have members at Journey, we have Partners that help us accomplish the mission and vision of Journey Church.  Partners help to carry the heart of Jesus into the world by humbly pointing everyone to absolute hope.

In this episode, Zack DeBerry sits down with our Creative Arts Pastor, Chris Denning, to talk about why partnering is such a big deal at Journey, what partnering looks like, and how you can take steps today to partner with Journey.
