Journey Church of Atlanta was started in 2004 with a heart for college students. Pastor Matt and a team of six young adults came in faith, connected with students on the campuses, and experienced the movement of God firsthand.
Our college ministry, known as Midtown, continues to this day. We’ve been able to host services and Bible study groups in several college campuses across Atlanta — Georgia Tech, Emory University and Oxford College, and Georgia State University.
As our church continued maturing, many decided to continue their young adult lives in Atlanta. The need for a separate working adult and family ministry became evident. Eastside, our young adult and family ministry, was started from that need. Our current lead pastor, Dandy Mejias, joined Journey Church in 2016 to minister to families and young adults. Since then, our community has grown with more married couples, young families, and college students.
Our church believes in missional living and follows the Great Commission “to go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father”. God has been faithful in providing opportunities to love our neighbors and spread the gospel to those around us and also overseas. It has been amazing to witness God’s power to transform lives both in our church and local communities.
We invite you to join us on this journey to advance God’s kingdom on the college campuses, in the workplace, and across the world.
Until He returns,
The Journey Church of Atlanta
The Journey Church of Atlanta is part of a relational network of churches that comprise Acts Ministries International. With a commitment to similar vision and values, along with a desire for accountability and partnership in the Gospel work of the Great Commission, Journey began in August 2004 as one of AMI's first church plants.
“Acts Ministries International (AMI™) began in 2002 with a group of pastors who had a vision to restore the early church that was seen in Acts 2. We envision AMI™ to be more than a denomination or an association. It is a community of churches seeking to model the spirituality, vision, and partnership exemplified in the book of Acts. AMI™ is committed to developing disciples of Christ within our churches, as well as spreading the gospel message to unreached people through church planting and missions work.”
