In 2009, the leadership of North Bullitt Christian Church had a vision of planting a new congregation in Shepherdsville. A number of members expressed a willingness to serve as a core group for the new work. The Salt River Men’s Fellowship and Men for Christ signed on as supporting partners.
Bro. Jeremy Willis was hired and was on the field June 1, 2010. Under the leadership of Bro. Jeremy, Journey Christian Church launched on October 10, 2010, meeting in the Shepherdsville Elementary School. The congregation has continued to grow not only in numbers but also in their participation in community activities. Although the school served well as a meeting place, it was time to move. The congregation held their first service in their new location at 416 South Buckman Street in Shepherdsville on Sunday, December 22. There were 189 in attendance–a new record for the young congregation! Men for Christ has been involved both in prayer support and financial support since 2010 and recently contributed $30,000 to assist with the expenses of preparing the new home. We pray for their continued growth and efforts to lead people closer to Christ.
UPDATE ON JOURNEY CHRISTIAN
All building renovations are complete. Since moving into the new space, attendance has been running a little over 400 with attendance of 440 on February 7, 2016. The congregation is appreciative of the assistance provided by Men for Christ.
AUGUST, 2016 UPDATE
Journey Christian received a Votaw Loan from Men for Christ and will purchase the building which has been their home. EASTER SUNDAY, 2017: MORE THAN 1,000 WERE IN ATTENDANCE.
