1 to 1 Discipleship


Often the best spiritual growth happens through a one to one relationship. If you would like a spiritual mentor or coach to meet with you, we’d be happy to help connect you with someone. Appointments are filled with grace, love, sharing, encouragement, and learning together from the Bible about some of the most important issues that help us to grow in our faith. If you would like to meet with someone (men with men; women with women), please contact the church office at office@journeydepere.com.


Growth Groups


What is a Growth Group? A Growth Group is a small group of people who meet regularly, typically in someone’s home, to get to know other people and grow spiritually. Growth Groups are for everyone, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey. At Journey we believe the best way to grow deeper in your faith and relationship with God is to be involved in a growth group.

Below is a listing of current Growth Groups. Please email groups@journeydepere.com for more info.

Study: Victory over Darkness Book and DVD Study

“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). It is Jesus’ promise to you — the promise that you live triumphantly. But what keeps you from really walking in the joy of the Lord? The powers of darkness attack us daily. But, as Dr. Neil Anderson shows in Victory Over the Darkness, you can have the power to conquer them by knowing who you are in Christ. In Victory Over the Darkness, you’ll learn how to: realize the power of your identity in Christ, free yourself from the burdens of your past, stand against the spiritual forces of this world, win the battle for your mind, become the spiritual person you want to be.

Children Welcome: Yes
Cost: $5

Marriage and Family

MarriageAndFamily2

Before Marriage:

Before marriage, a couple looks forward to all sorts of wonderful dreams and hopes for your life together. God created marriage to be special for you and your soon to be spouse. We want to help you get off to the right start, which is why we offer pre-marital counseling. Please email or call the church office if you would like to meet with a pastor to discuss your future.

Newly Married:

Sometime after your wedding, you will begin to realize your spouse is not perfect! That’s ok, we all experience bumps along the way. We want to help you build the foundation of your marriage on Christ.

Marriage Help:

Every marriage hits some bumps along the way. The best marriages are often the ones that have endured together and are willing to do whatever it takes to rebuild and restore. We have resources, small groups, and caring people to help when the bumps hit. If we can’t help, we will gladly refer you to a professional.

Parenting:

Being a parent to a child is a tremendous joy. It is also a major responsibility. The best way to help kids is to equip the parents, which is a major emphasis in our Orange Family Ministry approach. Parents are the number one influence in their child’s life. So not only are we here to provide a great experience for your kids every Sunday, we’re also here to help you be all God wants you to be! If you would like more information about our family ministry approach, please contact our office.

Financial Peace University

FinancialPeaceUniversity
We regularly offer Dave Ramsey’s class Financial Peace University. This class has helped millions of people around the country and world learn how to get out of debt, save for the future, and become generous. The problem is that most people do not have a plan. The average person that takes this class reduces their debt by $5300 and saves $2700 in 9 weeks! There are no gimmicks, just learning basic, biblical principles of handling money.

Financial Peace University is an 8-week class. The 2017 class will begin on January 25th and you can register online HERE. For more information email office@journeydepere.com.

Missions

Missions
Involvement in missions is a great way to grow in your faith. We approach missions based on Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Local (Jerusalem):

We desire to love and serve our local community and demonstrate to them the love of Jesus in practical ways. Our church is regularly active in serving our community, with a “no strings attached” approach. We serve and love others just because we think that’s what Jesus would do. We are excited to partner with local organizations like Freedom House and a church planting network in Northeast Wisconsin called a LEAD Team.

National (Judea):

Did you know that North America is the only continent where Christianity is not growing? Out of 350,000 churches in America:

  • 80% have reached a plateau or are declining.
  • 15% are growing because of transfer growth.
  • Only 5% are growing because of conversion growth. -The Barna Group

We believe in partnering and networking with others across the country to further the cause of Christ through church planting. For networking and accountability, we are associated with a movement called Converge.

Cross Cultural (Samaria):

We love to help cross cultural church plants get started and strengthened. We currently support a local church planter serving the Hispanic speaking community in Green Bay.

Global (to the ends of the earth):

Global missions is important and we support ministries that help in times of crisis. We also support international missions and church planting organizations.
