Planting New Churches

Our dedication to reaching people in China Spring, greater Waco and beyond who are disconnected from God and from his people stays strong. As an outgrowth of this heart for the disconnected, Journey actively partners with Nexus to plant new churches in Texas and beyond. 

When we partner with a church through Nexus, Journey provides the church plant with support from planning and building all the way through the new church’s first five years of operation. Our support includes: 

  • Financial contributions for church operations, property purchases and construction. 
  • Spiritual guidance and counsel to leaders on launching the church, developing programs and how to successfully manage daily business.
