Campus Constants

For over 100 years, Journey of Faith has offered relevant worship and teaching, vibrant ministries for young people, and opportunities to serve others. With a desire to glorify God and expand His work, we envision our church as multi- generational, multicultural, and multisite. To remain one church in more than one location, the following are “constants” for our current and future campuses:

1. ONE CHURCH: All campuses will flow from shared vision, mission, values, core beliefs, governance, budget, and strategy with campus pastors serving under a centralized directional leadership structure.

2. ONE MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY: All ministry environments (children, students, adults) will be consistent through a centrally approved strategy for programming, curriculum, methodology, and communications based on our core values:

Welcome: shared processes for new visitors, guest services, assimilation, and membership

Transform: shared processes for spiritual growth, care ministry, and leadership development

Serve: shared processes for volunteering, service projects, and ministry partnerships

3. ONE WORSHIP PHILOSOPHY: Our worship leaders, under the direction of the Worship Arts Pastor, will design worship for all campuses, balancing common style with some freedom to locally contextualize.

4. ONE MESSAGE: Our teaching team, under the direction of the Lead Pastor, will be the primary source for weekly preaching at all campuses in person or through video delivery. 

5. ONE MISSIONS STRATEGY: Each campus will operate under a centralized missions strategy for global and local outreach and missionary support.

6. ONE OPERATIONS SYSTEM: All campuses will share centralized support for accounting, information technology, human resources, property management, safety, and communications strategy including logo, branding, graphics, website, print materials, and social media. 

7. ONE FINANCIAL PLAN: All campuses will share a common budget, financial strategy, accountability, and will be designed for financial sustainability.
