Our Shepherding Couples (church elders) oversee spiritual care for the Journey family. In this role, the shepherds offer spiritual insight and encouragement for daily life and in times of crisis.
Shepherding Couples are also assigned to support at least one member of our staff and several Journey Communities each year. They provide our leaders with mentoring and training, in addition to spiritual care.
Shepherding Couples also serve as prayer warriors for Journey and they take this role seriously by praying intently for the pastoral staff and the larger Journey family.
James 5:14-15 reminds us to call on the elders of the church for prayer because the prayer of faith can save the sick and lead to the forgiveness of sins.
