The Journey’s whole program is based upon Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness before he began his ministry. The biblical idea is that by example, Jesus has shown us the importance of getting away to be with God, to focus solely on God, and to do that we need to have relationship with Jesus.
THE JOURNEY’S VISION
To help individuals who are in a transition of life to understand who they are why they are and where that puts them in relationship to God in Christ Jesus, by marking a point in time through a rite of passage journey or a wilderness experience.
BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW THE JOURNEY GOT STARTED AND WHY IT EXISTS
The Journey began when we started to see the dire need for men, women, boys and girls to have an experience going through a rite of passage and/or wilderness experience. Being located in Lake Tahoe in the middle of the Sierra Nevada mountains, we thought what amazing work we could do for Christ by offering such an experience. The Journey is Faith Based and is developed after Jesus 40 days in the wilderness.
