Journey is the continuing education branch of Western Theological Seminary. Our mission is to create learning opportunities for the church, pastors, congregations, and individuals.
Journey creates learning opportunities for church leaders to encourage and empower them as they lead the church in mission.
Preaching the Word is a vocation worthy of our lives. It requires us to dwell in the text and allow the text to dwell in us.
Join us as we participate in workshops, learn from speakers and study the craft of preaching together.
Meet with fellow pastors to engage in the practice of preaching and learn what it means to dwell in the Word.
Find other seminary students in our peer groups and discuss the joys and struggles of ministry work.
Along with fellow college students, let us help you discern and pursue your gifts in ministry and preaching.
We work to prepare and support leaders for the church and the world—this includes equipping them for ministry and empowering them to sustain life in ministry.
Our goal is to help leaders develop the tools needed to confront unhealthy models that have hindered personal and congregational health.
