Journey Church International with Pastor Christian Newsome

Missions and Outreach

At Journey Church International we are fulfilling the Great Compassion (Mt. 25:31-46) by connecting with and supporting local ministry partners who exist in our community to feed the hungry, clothe the needy, visit those imprisoned, and help hurting people. We give our resources, people, time, and money to effective local ministries so that their mission is carried out in Jackson and Cass Counties.

Community Impact

Serve Days

Serve Days happen every quarter and are filled with different service projects throughout the Kansas City metro area. We serve alongside local mission partners like Coldwater, Heart N Hand Ministries, Cass County Rescue Mission, variety of local food pantries and more. Serve Days may also include community clean-up, meal deliveries to First Responders, church-wide donation drives and more! The heartbeat of the day will be for our church to find needs within our community and meet them!

Stay tuned for our next Serve Day opportunity!

We will have serve projects, community clean-up, meals and ministry to first responders, serving along side our ministry partners such as Coldwater, and a donation drive centered about “Back to School” backpacks to support the schools in our community.
