Journey Serves — Community Impact and Missions


When Jesus showed up on the scene, he said that he was all about “good news for the poor.” So, like him, we want to spread good news for the poor, the dejected, the unseen, the broken, the wounded, the outcasts. Through Journey Serves, we hope to spread good news by feeding people, clothing people, helping people back on their feet, cleaning up our local parks, partnering globally in communities like Carrefour, Haiti and Tecate, Mexico.

Keep up to date on ways to serve by visiting this page often. Together, we can bring heaven to earth.

Journey Serves: Immigrants and Refugees

November 3, 2014 1:56 pm

Urban Life

Urban Life is a ministry based in the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego. “Urban Life exists to see our neighborhoods become great places to raise families through cultivating vibrant missional communities that love God, neighbor, and ‘hood.” Urban Life is staffed by a number of young people (late 20s – early 30s) who have moved into and live in the neighborhood.

San Diego’s City Heights neighborhood is the youth epicenter of San Diego County. With a population of nearly 80,000 in an area of 4 sq. mi., City Heights is a VERY diverse, multicultural community of urban San Diego. Many families here are refugees or immigrants from east Africa, Vietnam, Cambodia or Latin America, and a large number live in poverty. City Heights has the highest concentration of youth in San Diego County.

Journey has worked with Urban Life in the past. Recently, they approached us with a request that we assist them in providing tutoring to 12 of their high school youth. They are looking for a commitment of one day a week (T or Th) from 5:30 – 7 PM for a semester. These activities take place in one of the buildings on the church property.

If you’re interested in checking this out, please let David Merk know. He would be pleased to visit the site with you.

Did you know that Journey’s Food Bank provides food to several different groups? Four monthly distributions, each attended by more than 120 families; a monthly door-to-door delivery to more than 75 single seniors at Guava Gardens senior apartments; residents of the Mission Gorge senior mobile home park; and daily visitors to Journey. We’re headed towards Thanksgiving, our biggest need of the year. Let’s fill up The Bank and bless our neighbors!

Drop off non-perishable donations during weekend services or in front of the church office during the week. We can’t do it without you!
