The Leadership of Journey Church Begins with Jesus
The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is the Head of the Church (Ephesians 1:22–23, 4:15, 5:23). He is the One that we seek and follow as He continues to advance the movement that He started 2,000 years ago through His perfect life, substitutionary death and victorious resurrection. After He ascended into heaven, He gave us His Spirit and established His Church to be led by elders. It’s Jesus’ church, and He is our Senior Pastor. Underneath the guidance of Jesus are leaders who follow Jesus and encourage others to follow Him as well. 


We believe the Bible is clear that a group of people are called to be the Pastor/Elders of the local church. Journey Church believes in plurality/team leadership and as such is an elder-led church that submits to the authority of the Bible.
