Who is the pastor of The Journey Church?

For more than 20 years, Jonie Scruggs pastored students both domestically and on mission trips to many foreign countries. In 2003, God brought Jonie and his family back to his hometown of Waller, TX, where He began prompting him to plant a church.  His life’s passion is to communicate God’s truth to a generation who desperately needs to know Him.  He is a recognized speaker on God’s sovereign grace, relationships, and the challenges of life.  While he has never met the Pope, the President of the United States, or the Queen of England, he will captivate your heart, illuminate the scripture, challenge your thinking, and motivate you to action. Jonie is married to PJ and they have two wonderful children: KyLeigh and Talan.


We do not go to the church; we ARE the church. Our building is merely a tool to reach people. Buildings cannot contain us and the enemy cannot stop us. We are committed to influencing everyone around us. We flourish in our homes, families, careers, finances, relationships, communities and beyond.

We are the church whose authentic worship touches the heart of Jesus and changes the lives of people. We seek His face and point others to His greatness.

We are the church who’s committed to raising, training, empowering and releasing a leading generation. We welcome everyone, value everyone and are transformed by the power of Jesus. Every one of us is consumed with this goal.

We are the church who’s completely dependent on the person of the Holy Spirit. We are praying, uniting, believing and working together to magnify Jesus for the world to see.

We are the church with a message that reaches both those who love the church and those who have been disillusioned with the church. Our message is so clear that people are transformed within and compelled to go and make disciples in all the world.

We are the church who develops and fosters genuine, authentic, lifelong relationships through true community—community where people are able to connect when they are ready.

We are the church so Kingdom-minded we will count whatever the cost and pay whatever the price to see revival sweep this land.

We are the church who is multiplying instead of adding. We are committed to being One Church in multiple locations.

We are the church whose head is Jesus, whose power is the Holy Spirit and whose mission is to disciple people who disciple people.
