Why Are We Starting a New Church in Galena?

Timothy Swigart

A question I'm often asked is related to why we're starting a new church in Galena. Don't we have enough churches in town? Why one more?

The answer lies in the demographics of this community. In looking at the religious affiliations in this community well over half of residents are not regularly engaged in a church. Extrapolated over the entire zip code, this amounts to over 3,000 people without a church home. Over 3,000 people do not have a consistent Gospel witness in their lives and are missing out on the great joy of being part of the Body of Christ. There is great need in our community!

Journey Church hopes to minister to the unconnected and disenfranchised in Galena and the surrounding area. We hope to share the joy of knowing Christ as Lord. We hope to share in the blessing of having a spiritual family.

This is a high calling and a tremendous task. We're currently looking for missional Christians to join with us in planting this church. We cannot do this alone. We need the involvement and support of other Christians to see this mission succeed. Are you interested in reaching the unreached in Galena? If so, contact me through this website and we'll get the ball rolling.
