Worship Artist in Residence 


The Worship Artist in Residence will be responsible for planning and leading the weekend  worship experiences during the month of July. 

Church Background: Located in Northern Virginia (NOVA), The Journey has been a growing  and healthy church for over 50 years. The church is diverse and has a large military and  government contingent. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for us to lose 20% of our people a  year due to moving, but God keeps us growing! We offer 2 services and an average weekly  attendance of over 400 people. Chad Simpkins has been the Lead Pastor for 5 years and on  staff for another 2 years. He emphasizes leadership development through coaching leaders and  ensuring that the staff models health for our church. The staff of 11 is a mixture of full and part  time position, making for a fun, team-oriented culture. Our current Worship Pastor will be on  leave the month of July.
