We are an imperfect community of believers who want to grow in our faith,

and more fully experience the life that God offers to us.
What to Expect
At The Journey, you don’t have to dress up, put on a face, or pretend to be someone you aren’t.  We don’t care about your political party, or who you voted for in the last election.  We desire to be an authentic community of believers moving together toward Christ and seeking to reflect his kingdom on earth while sharing the good news of Jesus with our hurting world.
About Us
The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
Our Staff
Senior Pastor Kyle Kachelmeier began at The Journey in August, 2016, moving to Kansas from his home state of Minnesota.  Associate Pastor Heather Perkins began in her position in July, 2018 after serving previously as the Worship Director.  Worship Leader Schelby Thompson was raised in the church and assumed leadership for worship in May, 2019.

About Women:


The Evangelical Covenant Church affirms the call to ministry for all persons. We have ordained and fully credentialed women since 1976 and we seek to be a diverse and welcoming church that affirms the calling and gifts of the entire body of Christ.

Camp is Coming

Thank you to everyone who came to breakfast on Easter and contributed to the camp fund.  $770 was raised to help support the cost of sending our children to camp this summer.  Amazing!   – 
On May 11th, our kids will host a CAR WASH at the church from 10:00 –1:00.  Stop by, get your car cleaned and donate to the cause.  Tell your friends and neighbors to stop by as well.  
Applications for camp are due on May 12th.
