The Journey Church is located in Northern Virginia (NOVA), about 12 miles from Washington, DC. The Journey has been a growing and healthy church for almost 50 years. The people who attend The Journey are young and diverse with a large military and government contingency. Like the area, the church is transient in nature with about 20% of those attending moving each year. Even with so many people moving away, the church still sees yearly growth. Every weekend, we offer two worship services with an average weekly attendance of over 400 people. Chad Simpkins has been the Lead Pastor for five years and on staff for six 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 positions, making for a fun, team-oriented culture. Our worship team is very diverse in age, ethnicity, and abilities. The ideal candidate will be a college student who can oversee others, is coachable, can lead worship, and who is excited about getting a great introduction to working in ministry!
