About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

What we believe

Journey The Way stands with the larger, universal body of Christ in affirming the core tenants of orthodox Christianity listed in our statement of faith. Along with our confession of belief, we hold to five distinctive doctrines that give shape to our methodology and practice as a church. These distinctives are consistent with and adapted from the Doctrinal Distinctives of the Acts 29 Network.


Journey The Way is led by gifted men and women who have been called by Christ to use their gifts for the leadership of the body. The organizational structure of Journey the Way is a church led by a plurality of elders and served by a team of directors to carry out the mission of loving God, loving people, and turning the world upside down. {With links to “Pastors & Elders” and “Meet the JTW Staff”}

Who we are & How we partner

Journey The Way exists as a church to plant other churches and shares a particular theological and philosophical vision for church planting with the Acts 29 Network. We partner with A29 to see churches planted in Kansas, the US, and all over the world.


As well as planting churches that plant churches and training leaders, Journey The Way works in collaboration with the Southern Baptist Convention, particularly the Heart of Kansas Baptist Association, to advance the gospel within our city through church planting, evangelism, and ministry.

Where we come from

Hope Church was started in 2012 by a trio of families. Back then, this trio of families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Hope hosted its first gathering in late 2012.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, Hope Church is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Hope Church. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Hope family.
