At Journey, our weekend messages touch on a variety of real-life topics including feeling isolated, struggling with finances, and even the way in which popular films relate to God and His story. The point is to learn how we can do life with God in our real lives. Behind the Journey offers relevant topics through various perspectives, different writers, and personal God stories to help expand on what we are learning from weekend messages.

Topics include Identity and Purpose, Missions, Finances, Doubts, Relationships, Mental Health issues, Parenting and kids/youth.
