FB_IMG_1469099816204Our Story

Faith Journey was planted in 2003 to be a “church in the marketplace”.  The desire was to be present and available where people “do life” every day.
 
 
 
 
 
 

FB_IMG_1469099267366Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Faith Journey Church is to lead people to discover and experience the transforming adventure of life in Christ! The vision of our church is to glorify and exalt our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by means of missionary activity and support, to minister the ordinances, to edify believers, and to do all that is possible to magnify the name of Jesus.
 
 

Our Values

The Faith Journey Church family is aware that we are not the only church in the greater Olathe area.  We join them in prayer and service to the Olathe community, especially Original Town Olathe.  We do, however, have some unique values that guide and direct how we accomplish the mission we believe God has revealed to us.
 
 
 
 

Our StaffFB_IMG_1469099649397

Our staff recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Where do I go… 

Currently, Faith Journey is meeting for Sunday Services at Olathe South High School.  Please check our Service Times & Location page for additional information and sudden changes.  
 
…and what do I wear?
At Faith Journey we value authenticity.  It’s what makes us so comfortable around one another since we do not have to try to be “someone we are not.”  We also understand what it is like to visit some place new, especially if we do not know anyone.  Therefore, feel free to be yourself.  You will find most of us in nice casual wear and jeans–some even wear their nice shorts if the weather warrants.  Of course, if men desire to wear a suit coat and tie and ladies prefer a dress, you may do so.  You will find that Faith Journey’s focus is on the character of our hearts as opposed to style of clothing.
 
How Do I Meet People?
One of the ways we meet and connect with one another is gathering for weekly worship.  Every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. we join together at our Faith Journey Cafe to share breakfast foods and a morning coffee.  Then, we all go to the worship center at 10:30 for morning worship.  Of course, young people and children have an opportunity to interact with their specific age groups as well.  The youth (6th – 12th graders) meet for Bible Learning and Breakfast (BLAB ) at 9:45.  Children also meet; however, they meet during part of the worship hour.  God’s Clubhouse and Journey Kids are dismissed during the Meet and Greet time of our worship service.  
 
There are additional opportunities for fellowship throughout the month as well.  Many have decided to connect with one of our Spark Groups  Faith Journey values Discipleship and Spark Groups are a way to achieve that goal of becoming more like Jesus Christ.  You can learn more about these opportunities on our EVENTS page.
 
 

Invited to Participate…

One of the things that we notice about the ministry of Jesus is that he met people where they lived. He was in the marketplace, the Temple, the village squares, the town synagogues, and people’s homes.  He did not expect people to come to him but was active in seeking them.  Those whom Jesus encountered were invited to follow Him…to participate with Him in Kingdom building.  In fact, Jesus only called participants; He never called for spectators.  This is something we highly value at Faith Journey, and why we encourage all those who attend to discover what it means to be a Disciple.Great Commish

 

Why we Serve?

Jesus told us, His disciples, to make disciples of all nations (not just Olathe).  Therefore, another important value of Faith Journey is our mission to the world.  It begins in downtown Olathe and spreads overseas.  Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning the church or preparing church bulletins, to assisting at homeless shelters or accepting to be a missionary in Kenya. And, you may not realize just how impactful your efforts at serving and investing in others can be until you see it through the eyes of a little girl who loved “coco…”  (click here to see her letter)
 

Where Can I Serve?

There are various options available when it comes to serving one another.  Please feel free to click on any of the following ministry areas for a more detailed explanation as well as that ministry’s coordinator…

Worship through giving…

 
Another way to participate in Kingdom building at Faith Journey is through giving. Sacrificial giving is another value of Faith Journey.  We respond to Jesus’ expectation to give of our time, talents, and treasures.  Many of us look forward to the first Sunday of each month–we call it First Fruits Sunday, where we offer to God the “first fruits” of our earnings.  Yet, every Sunday is an opportunity to participate in what we call Generous, Global, Giving (or G3).  Our G3 giving allows us to support the costs of ministry to our local community as well as missions around the world.
 
Faith Journey also values integrity and accountability in all aspects of life.  When you give, you can be assured that your donations will be used as designated.  Giving is also easier. With just a click of your computer’s mouse or the touch of your finger, you can be connected to eGiving or Paypal.  With eGiving, you can track your annual giving and report charitable donations for your tax return.  Whether you use eGiving or PayPal we will provide you your giving statement after December 31 for the tax year.

Last year we served Original Town Olathe by providing close access parking to attenders of Old Settlers festivities.  The opportunity was mutual as donations were requested for Faith Journey’s Food Pantry.  As a result of showing kindness in the form of secure parking just a few steps from the carnival, the attenders and passers by donated over $800 as well as a few bags of groceries.  
 
We endeavor to utilize this opportunity yet again. Please check the weekly bulletin for future details.

How Are We Finding Ourselves in God’s Story?

The past few weeks Pastor Ken Lightcap has been preaching from the book of Acts lately. The Book is the continuation of the story of God. In Acts to we find a snap shot of the early church and their practices. We as his followers, the modern church, are to be caught up in His Story, as His agents here on Earth.
