Who We Are

Our two identical services, at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM, feature a warm, friendly, casual atmosphere with upbeat music and practical teaching to enable you to experience God in a real way. We strive to be a place where nobody feels like an “outsider.” That means we don’t dress up, we don’t use Christian jargon and we don’t judge people by their appearance. It is our desire to have people from all walks of life in our church, and we want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome. Church lasts about an hour. Visit the Journey Cafe between services for FREE coffee and treats.

Our Services

What are services like?
WHAT IS JOURNEY LIKE? Our two identical services, at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM, feature a warm, friendly, casual atmosphere with upbeat music and practical teaching to enable you to experience God in a real way. We strive to be a place where nobody feels like an “outsider.” That means we don’t dress up, we don’t use Christian jargon and we don’t judge people by their appearance. It is our desire to have people from all walks of life in our church, and we want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome. Church lasts about an hour. Visit the Journey Cafe between services for FREE coffee and treats. WHAT ARE THE MESSAGES LIKE? The teaching is expository (which simply means it brings out the meaning of a particular text or passage), relevant (you can relate it to your life situation) and applicable (you can apply it to your life). Sometimes we work through an entire book of the Bible and other times we discuss current topics and issues which might incorporate passages from more than one book at a time. WHAT IS THE MUSIC LIKE? Our music is a mix of contemporary worship sings and hymns. Sometimes we do the hymns in a more contemporary way, and others times we do them in their original style. Here are some examples of songs you might hear at Journey: - Jesus Paid it All/O Praise the One – Kristian Stanfill - Open Up Our Eyes – Elevation Worship - Christ is Enough – Hillsong - Revelation Song – Kari Jobe WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR KIDS? We have lots of families with kids, so we have a Nursery for children from newborn to two, Jr. KidZone for kids from three years old through Kindergarten, and KidZone for kids from first through fifth grade. For kids in sixth grade through high school, we have our Youth Ministry, which meets on Wednesday nights. WHAT DO I WEAR? Most people dress casual, wearing jeans and shorts, and some people like to dress up. Wear whatever is comfortable for you, but clothing is not optional.

What is the community like?
Our church is very friendly and welcoming. You will find people from a variety of backgrounds, and we are "multi-generational."

What if I'm not a Christian?
We started Journey for you! Many of the people who attend Journey are/were not Christian. The majority of the people who come to Journey were not attending church prior to coming. We don't talk over your head and we explain difficult doctrine and concepts.

Jim Clayton

Jim is a born-and-bred Hoosier with a heart for the people of Central Indiana. He grew up in Evansville and then lived in Indy for five years before moving to the Chicago area. While living in Indy, Jim earned an MBA from IU. It was during that time Jim came to understand what it means to follow Christ, and he put his faith in Christ and started following Him. Jim started his own business in 1996; an Internet marketing company. Eventually, he sensed a call to ministry, so he attended Moody Bible Institute, graduating in December, 2007 with a Master of Divinity degree. After two years of seeking God’s will for a location, Jim and his wife moved to Franklin in June, 2008 (the day before the big flood). His passion is to help people in the Franklin area connect with the God who loves them and help them move forward on their spiritual journey one step at a time. He has a down-to-earth teaching style with an emphasis on practical application to daily life. Before starting Journey, Jim served in several ministry positions with two different churches over a period of fifteen years. In his spare time Jim enjoys hanging out with his wife Jodi and their daughters Julia and Jaycee, getting to know people around Franklin, working out, reading, bike riding, playing racquetball, scuba diving, working on the house, and reading.
