One of the major elements I spoke about was our disciple-making mission. Every church will claim to want to make disciples, but not every church has real definition and plan for how to make that disciple. At the Journey, our definition of a disciple of Jesus is: a person who is pursuing the Presence of God, seeing the world through the Perspective of God, and living for the Purposes of God. This is what we are about. Our Catalyst Worship Gathering on Sunday's is Presence environment, our small groups that meet through the week is a Perspective environment, and our ministry teams and outreach events are our Purposes environment. That is what we are about. It is also how you know what your next step is. If you attend the Journey and are looking for the next step, come to a small group. If you are not coming to the Journey but are interested, come to a Catalyst Worship Gathering.
You can always measure the health of the church by the number of new families that come. If last night is an indication, then we are in good shape.
