Engagement and service within the community. We identify a need then empower the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This is important because others witness acts of kindness, which we hope they will emulate.
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 40 
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1: 8

Pin Ministry

We are continuously collecting clothing for the homeless at our Missions Table.

We have opportunities for adults to feed and clothe the homeless at
PiN Mon-Fri 1-4PM, Sat 11:45 AM - 3:00 PM & Sun 12:30-2:30. Sign up page:
First Saturdays (Every Month): Adults and supervised children 10 and over can volunteer at PiN on the first Saturday of the Month 3-5 PM, sorting clothes, packing lunches and other “behind the scenes” work not in direct contact with the homeless.

We are starting a second Saturday (every other month, on odd months) at PiN for anyone wishing to personally feed and clothe the homeless.  We will serve from 12:00 PM through 3:00 PM. Coming in 15 minutes early helps us to open the doors at 12:00 PM.  We can serve the homeless in various roles:
-Service Desk: Help the homeless sign up for various services for the day and organize paperwork.
-Personal Shopper: Help them locate clothing in the proper sizes and gather hygiene supplies.
-Shower Moderator: Watch the timer and help the homeless get towels and hygiene supplies.
-Laundry: Help the homeless use washing machines.
-Server: Serve food at their tables and make sure their coffee stays full :)
The lunch we serve will be prepared by the Journey Church.  

We meet at 1164 Miller's Ln, Virginia Beach, VA 23451

Contact Andrea Morris if you would like to participate.

Tidewater Friends of Foster Care

TFFC is committed to raising awareness of the needs of children in foster care and increasing the number of available foster family homes. They also work to provide enrichment programs that bridge the gap between what is available from public services and those elements that are essential to a healthy, happy and thriving childhood.
We partner with TFFC to provide Christmas and birthday gifts for children in foster care.

Mission Trip 2023

Serve the City 2023

Looking for a few good men!
Journey Church is partnering with the 1st Precinct of the Chesapeake Police Department, Chesapeake Young Life and the Great Bridge YMCA to enrich the lives of young men growing up without a father figure in the home.  Our next event will be a sports-focused afternoon on 11 June from 1-4 PM.  We are looking for men of all ages who will commit to this event and follow-on mentoring for young men of older Middle School age.  Volunteers will be responsible working behind the scenes with clean-up and helping set up for events as well as participating in the events as ability allows.The goal is to develop the young men’s interest in Church, “Young Life”, the YMCA and follow-on mentoring with either Chesapeake Police Officers or our JC volunteers.  
This Serve the City project provides the opportunity for us to engage our community with Christ’s love and provide their families with Hope, Healing and Wholeness.

August Diaper Drive

 Here’s an easy way to engage our community with the love of Christ.

For the month of August, The Journey Church will be collecting diapers for ECHO Family Care Partners.  This organization works with struggling parents and provides the necessary essentials for child care.

We will be collecting diaper donations at the Missions Table every Sunday in August.   We can take preemie diapers all the way through adult diapers, and can accept open packages as well if a child recently outgrew a size.  Wipes are also welcome.  The most requested sizes are sizes 4, 5, 6, and all pull-ups.  Our goal is to donate at least  1,000 diapers.
  When ECHO delivers the diapers, they also provide information about Journey Church!
