Journey Partner Inc.

Our journey is unique but incomplete without the support and sharing of each other.
Carrying each other’s burdens. Serving each other in love.

Vision, Mission, Focus

Our vision is
to build up others by nurturing faith to work in love.
Our mission is
to empower under-served demographics to share each other’s burdens and to persevere in carrying their own load, either as individuals, groups, or teams.
Our focus is
as an inter-faith Christian ministry specifically serving women married to ministers, women in Christian leadership, and churches/organizations desiring to grow – in Christian leadership, team building, and small group leadership. These individuals are in serving roles, but they are often underserved themselves.
