Our Story

In 2011, in the backyard of Mark and Tammi Rachels, Journey Church launched. Seeking a place, God sent us to Pickett Elementary School where we came to understand the church that God created us to be. This church was one that was focused on a community of real people with real problems, seeking to impact their lives with the love of Christ.

Pickett became our first home where God showed us that the church can make an impact on the local community and schools. In 2014, God made it clear that we needed a building of our own to be able to minister to the community on a greater scale. God opened the doors to an old manufacturing facility just down the road from Pickett Elementary, which allowed us to continue to impact the school and the community where we started. It has been amazing to watch God take real people and use them for real ministry. We are so excited to see where God takes Journey Church next and so thankful that you want to be a part of our church!
