This fall we have been in a series called [BE]CAUSE as we looked at why we do what we do as a church and how we can BE part of the CAUSE. Because people are far from God, we will do whatever we can to help them experience the hope & life of Jesus. Because we want to reach the lakeshore, we will look to expand our impact. Because we want to experience God, we will keep taking next steps. Because we each have different circles of influence, we will all invest & invite. Because God wants to work in and through our lives and our church, we all have a part to play. BE part of the CAUSE. Be an everyday inviter. Be a hope giver. Be a world changer. You can review the series here.


During this series we shared some shifts we are making and some partnerships to expand our impact. Our Northside location is moving from a multi-site to a collaborating church partner. Restore Church will also be joining this collaboration. Justin was a church plant resident this past year and as he launches in the new year we will be teaming together to reach the lakeshore. (More insight into collaborating church model, watch part 2 of this series). 

We are teaming together with our global partners for our Hope Christmas Project. Every year we look to give the gift of Hope and this year we are looking to form a new partnership in the caribbean as we will be sponsoring a Haitian pastor. This year we are going bigger. Along with the Hope Christmas Project, we are also looking to stabilize our current financial situation and set aside 3 months operating expenses for Journey Church Northside in their transition of becoming an autonomous church. Would you consider an initial gift and/or increasing your giving for a year to expand our impact? We are looking to add 20 new givers and asking everyone to consider a weekly increase of $19.99 for the next year to cover these projects. You can give now on the donate page here. When you register or log in to our Push Pay giving platform, you find options for one time gifts to the Hope Christmas Project or you can increase your normal giving or find the options for Because and one year commitments.
