The  STEP UP Annual Special Offering is a call to sacrificial giving with a goal of $39,800 for four important missions and ministry areas.

Will you pray right now and ask God how He wants to use you and how He wants you to be part of this Special Offering?  Allow God to stretch you.  It will take all of us giving together to reach this God-sized goal!

“I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God,
through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”
 - Philippians 3:14  

STEPPING UP for National and International Missions

Equipping missionaries in the US and around the World

We are a church that supports missionaries. And in 2023, through cooperative efforts with other mission-minded churches, we will equip 3,057 North American Missionaries and 3,667 International Missionaries who are meeting needs, starting churches, and taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every identified people group around the globe. 
Meet some of the missionaries that your giving to STEP UP supports.

Launching a NEW Partnership to Serve Children in South Africa

In 2023 we will launch a new partnership with Hope Schools in South Africa to help children living in poverty who have been impacted by the HIV/AIDS and Covid pandemics.

When Pastor Jason was in NYC, he was part of the team that started this partnership, which The Journey NYC has continued for more than a decade. Now, through the STEP UP Special Offering, we have the opportunity to support Hope Schools educate over 250 students Pre-K through 10th grade and expand their ministry to serve even more children in need in East London, South Africa.  

We are also planning our first-ever Mission Trip to South Africa in 2023 to serve with Hope Schools. Your giving will have a tangible impact on the lives of these children!

Supporting the Growth of Reality Church – a New Church that is Reaching Miami for Jesus

We also are a “church that starts churches.”  And through STEP UP we will continue our support of Reality Church in it’s 2nd year as a new cross-cultural church in Miami reaching people for Christ in our backyard that we will never have the opportunity to reach.

Just 50 miles south of us, Miami is one of the most diverse and influential international cities in the world. Yet less than 10% of people living in Miami have a relationship with Jesus.

Reality Miami is a new church reaching people for Jesus in one of Miami’s fastest growing communities, just steps away from the University of MiamiWe are excited to begin this partnership of supporting Reality Miami in its crucial first year.

(Jesus) “In the same way that You gave Me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.”
– John 17:18

Stepping Up for Those in Need in Our Church and Community

Meeting the physical and spiritual needs of the poor in our area

We are a church that serves the "least of these."  Over the last year our church has been able to step up and meet needs in unprecedented ways – providing thousands of meals, blood donations, daily necessities, and shoes to children and families in need.  2022 has been one of the greatest seasons of community impact in the history of our church.

And we want to STEP UP our impact even more in 2023!

Through the STEP UP Special Offering and our partnership with Boca Helping Hands, we have an opportunity to provide meals, serve the poor, and help those in greatest need in South Florida (both spiritually and physically).  And through our partnership with Place of Hope we can minister to the needs of foster families and victims of human trafficking here in South Florida

Funding The Journey’s 2022 Benevolence Ministry to help those in our church facing a financial crisis or emergency.

Since 2011, the Benevolence Ministry has allowed us to walk beside people in distress due to difficult financial times, a loss of a job/apartment, or a death in the family and meet a one-time need.   And there has never been a greater time of need in our church with so many struggling financially, emotionally and physically.  

Because of your generous giving to the special offering, so far in 2022 we have been able to approve all valid requests for benevolence funding.  We look forward to meeting these needs (and more) in 2023!

In 2023 we will face many new challenges… but we will also be given many new chances to show the love of Jesus like never before.  We want to be prepared to respond to any new ministry opportunities that God presents us in the coming year.  Your giving to the STEP UP Special Offering helps us to do just that!

"Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do."
- Deuteronomy 15:10

Stepping Up for Evangelism

Reaching the people of South Florida in creative ways with the life-changing love of Jesus

There has never been a greater need in our community for revival and for people to experience the life-changing love of Jesus!  83% of the nearly 500,000 people living within 7 miles of our church do not have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.  That’s why South Florida is our greatest mission field.

The STEP UP Special Offering will help expand our evangelism efforts in creative ways in 2023 so we can reach our community with the love of Jesus during a time of great need.  In 2023 we have seen over 70 people come to faith in Jesus and welcomed over 400 first time guests… and we are praying to have an even greater impact for Jesus in 2023!
STEP UP will enable us to share Jesus in creative ways in2023.

Making one-time improvements to our patio to maximize that space for evening events, baptism and worship nights

In 2022, we celebrated the 400th baptism in the history of our church. It was a landmark moment and reminder that every week God is changing lives through the ministry of The Journey!

In 2023, we plan to offer even more opportunities for baptism, including a series of Baptism and Worship Nights where our church can gather for an evening of extended worship through music while also celebrating Baptisms Under the Stars on our beautiful patio using our portable baptistry.

To prepare for this (and other church events that we plan to hold on our patio in the evenings), we need to install new outdoor lighting, both for the success of these events, as well as expanded safety and security for our Ministry & Worship Center.   A portion of our gifts to the STEP UP Special Offering will allow us to install this lighting and use our patio for baptism and other church events in 2023

New lighting on our patio will enable us to hold Baptism and Worship Nights Under the Stars, as well as increase nighttime security on our property.

Stepping Up Our Technology for Greater Ministry Impact

Investing in one-time technology upgrades to equipment and software for Church Online and In-Person Services

In 2023 our church has experienced amazing growth in both our online and in-person services.  As we look to expand and meet the growing demands of a growing church the time has come to make some one-time upgrades to our equipment and software for both the In-Person and Online Church experience.

This includes upgrades to sound, video and lighting, as well as annual upgrades to necessary software that will allow us to keep up to date with the best technology for in-person services and broadcasting online services.
STEP UP will enable us to make needed equipment and software upgrades for our growing church.

Creating a new electronic Check-in Center for Journey Kids and Student Ministry featuring faster mobile check-in and enhanced security

Along with the rapid growth of our in-person services, our Children’s and Student Ministries are growing as we reach and serve many new families in our community.

To provide a faster, simpler, safer, and more stream-lined experience for our families on Sundays, we need to upgrade the Journey Kids and Student Ministry Check-in experience.

Through the STEP UP Special Offering, we will add a Mobile Check-in process, allowing parents to check in their children from their phone while enroute to church through a new Check-in System.  

This upgrade will require new laptops and tablets, specialized security tag printers, and new software which will dramatically reduce wait times for check-in and increase security in our Children’s and Student Ministry area using the latest in check-in technology to print security tags automatically and with more detailed information for each family.
New lighting on our patio will enable us to hold Baptism and Worship Nights Under the Stars, as well as increase nighttime security on our property.

(Jesus) "I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
- Matthew 16:18
