Get to Know Us

Who We Are?

Journey is a community of Silicon Valley Christian singles enjoying the kingdom adventure of great relationships with God and others. We are an inter-church ministry dedicated to bringing divine transformation to singles by equipping them for great relationships with God, friends/community, and the opposite sex, as well as impact in the world.

[Journey ministry leaders also have a passion to serve local churches and their singles ministries. They do so through their local singles events, by consulting with and training leaders with a desire to minister to the needs of Christian singles, and by conducting relational training events for single adults.]

 

What Will You Experience?

The local Journey community gathers on the two Friday nights a month for special fun, social and learning gatherings. The Journey ministry also hosts occasional relational training workshops. Our Friday events focus on singles in their 30s & 40s, while many of our workshops and online events are open to Christian singles of all ages. See the events page for more information.

We believe that as you connect with the Journey community, you will feel and experience faith, love, value, belonging, purpose and joy! You will also experience an impartation of divine hope and transformation for your present and future relationships as well as practical tools and skills that will rapidly take you to your destination.

 

More About us…

The Journey is a community of kingdom-minded single believers, committed to loving God and each other while helping one another toward fulfilling relationships. In this divine family of brothers and sisters, we are committed to expressing the Great Commandment (to love) before the Great Commission (to go)… so the world will know that we are His people and that Christ is real (John 13:34, 35).

The Journey is walked out through regular gatherings for fun, food & family. We also believe in training as actively for great friendships and life-long relationships as much as more than we believe in preparing for our careers.

As a ministry and personally (Kevin & Claudia) are closely and relationally connected to Forge (a house church community), and New Beginnings Community Church (NBCC).

 

Our Story

In November of 2011, after traveling a long Journey to marriage, Kevin & Claudia Paterson, found themselves surrounded by many Christian singles, asking for prayer, insights, encouragement, and mentoring. Understanding the joys and challenges of the single “season,” and with many years of experience mentoring and helping connect singles, they began asking the Lord what they should do to bless the large Christian singles community in the Bay Area. Eventually, after receiving requests from singles—and sensing the God’s direction—to launch a ministry, they hosted the first Journey meeting in their home on 11/11/11.

Over the past year, the ministry has grown, moved locations twice, and begun to host twice-monthly community meetings, frequent relational training events, and occasional inter-church single adult pastors and leaders events. Through Journey, Kevin has also published a book, and video blogs to inspire great community and relationships.

Kevin and Claudia are very thankful for the many lives the Lord has touched and transformed over the years, for the dozens of Journey family members that have entered into great courtships and marriages, and for the caring, fun community that is growing at Journey and throughout the Bay Area. They believe that this is just the beginning of a relational revolution that God is igniting in America and throughout the world. Yes, the best is yet to come, so, join us and “Don’t stop believing!”
