Code Red

Ordinary people on mission to change the world.

At The Journey, we believe Jesus calls us to help those who are near us and need us. It's why we give 10% of everything that's given here back to our community through Code Red. As we grow, we plan to keep giving and doing more to meet the needs of the overlooked and oppressed in our community.

We seek to partner with existing organizations that are committed experts in their field rather than create our own efforts from scratch. We believe this mission must benefit both the people who are served and the people who are serving – so we seek opportunities that will meet the needs of our local community while we grow spiritually.

Love Week

Every year, we host Love Week, where we mobilize hundreds of Journeyers to go out and serve with our community partners. In 2016, over 650 Journeyers joined together to serve over 1,800 hours in our community...all in a single week. This year, Love Week happens August 6th - August 12th, and sign ups begin at the end of July.

Additionally, all of our Journey Groups are encouraged to serve their community together. Click on the Connect tab to find out more.
