Missions and Outreach

We want to Engage, Equip, and Empower you to make a kingdom impact outside the church walls. At The Journey North, outreach is about building God’s kingdom through Christ-centered, church-led community transformation where we live and around the world.

This is why the firstfruits—the first 10% of The Journey North’s tithe—goes back to the kingdom by supporting local, national, and international outreach initiatives. The generosity of TJN members has allowed us to send funds, resources, and people to locations near and far to make a difference for the kingdom. We have also been able to develop strategic partnerships with churches, missionaries, and ministries all over the globe.

Impact is a child sponsorship program. We are a non-profit Christian international mission with the purpose to Engage, Equip & Empower underprivileged children around the world for the cause of Christ. We work alongside international partners who work directly with the children to invest in their lives by providing whole-life care that encompasses their physical, social, economic and spiritual needs. We strive to be like Jesus by showing unconditional love to the poor and needy; we do this all for the glory of God!
