Our story (by Pastor Kent)
I am so glad you’ve taken some time to read our story. Here is the short version. In 2005, while living in Rochester, NY I was praying and saw a mental image of a huge heart, placed over the Boston Area, pumping life in every direction. As a result, me and a few friends decided to take a trip to Boston to see what was stirring in God’s heart. Shortly after arriving, there was a significant stirring in my heart for this place. It was not apparent at that point, but my story would be intertwined with God’s story for Cambridge and Boston. Sensing God was up to something, I traveled to the Cambridge/Boston Area more than 25 times over a four-year period.
A step of faith
Then in September 2008, after a lifetime in Northwest PA and the Southern Tier of NY, the Lord asked our family to leave what was comfortable to step into the unknown. Without knowing what would come next, we put in our resignation with the network of campus ministries we were leading. Then, after several months of prayer and waiting on the Lord, He made it very clear that we were to move our family to Cambridge to plant a life-giving church in the Harvard Square Area.
Though we began services in late 2010, it took us a little while to build the church we dreamt about. On September 28, 2014 we formally launched Journey Church with over 100 people in attendance in order to tell everyone we are a church for our city!
It’s been an exhilarating and scary ride, but we would never go back to the way things were before. Life is meant to be lived with adventure and purpose. Since becoming a follower of Jesus, we have walked by faith and God has shown up at every step. As in your life, if you keep putting your feet in the water, He will keep parting it!
Abraham left what was familiar without knowing where he would end up, trusting that God was leading him. He was on a journey: a life-long pursuit of God. He followed Him each step of the way until the Lord called him home. We at the Journey desire to do the same – walk faithfully and fruitfully with God and make an impact in this world until He takes calls us home!
