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 We Believe


Our essential beliefs are summed up in

what we call Covenant Affirmations.

We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.
We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.
We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.

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.

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. Chris Lea began serving as Worship Director in November, 2020.
Blessing Box & Little Free Library:
Just off Harry Street at our west entry, we have both a Blessing Box and a Little Free Library. The Blessing Box contains staple food items available free for anyone who may be in need. The Little Free Library contains books for all ages. In both cases, takes whatever you or your family can use. If you have anything you don’t need that you can leave for the next person, you are welcome to do so, but it is not expected. We are happy to be able to provide this assistance and pray that you likewise bless others as you are able.
