What would you say to someone who's thinking about giving your church a try?
"Journey is a church trying to fulfill the great commission in where we reach out to our community and train believers," Smith said.
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing the faithful today?
"We are finding that there are lots of people that have been hurt, and the church needs to provide a place for hurting people, and that's believers and unbelievers alike," he said. "What we are trying to do is provide a safe place where people can hear the dangerous life-changing message of Jesus."
