Awe: JCC 20 Year Anniversary

Every great narrative has a beginning—the inauguration of the adventure. Great stories begin with an inciting event, something that causes it’s characters to move out in to the vast unknown, to risk everything they have. The beginning of Journey’s story was filled with risk and steps of faith. In this segment, some of the people who were around at the beginning of Journey recount stories of God’s movement during those formative years.

On February 25th, 1993, the first gathering of a group of people was held in a storefront in a Rancho San Diego strip mall. A vision had been cast for a church for “un-churched people.” The hope was to be a community of people that welcomed all people in, exactly as they were. Instead of being a place where you had to dress up or put up a façade, this gathering would be a “come-as-you-are” place—where God, Love and Grace would be central.

Eight weeks later, the first public service was held in the parking lot of that strip mall. It was Easter Sunday, April 11th, and 350 people showed up—people of all kinds. This place said they were “come-as-you-are” and people took them up on it. From that moment on, more and more people came to find themselves in God’s grand story. And they did it at a place called Journey Community Church.

Twenty years later, it’s hard for us to grasp the incredible work God has done in and through our church. Lives have been changed, healed and restored. Good news—through actions of love and care and peace—have been poured out throughout this world. People have found purpose, connection and grace. All because of God and his work in this community called Journey.
