About My Family

Libby and I have been married since March of 2007. We crossed paths during my senior year of college at the University of Tennessee. Libby has a heartbeat for early childhood education and is currently a school teacher at Inspire Elementary. We have four children: Tripp, Paxton, Rhett and Henley Grace.

I surrendered to a call from the Lord to full-time vocational ministry after a career in medical sales in 2011 and joined Bellevue Baptist Church's staff in 2012, where I was ordained and led our recreation ministry, young couples and leadership development. Libby and I are passionate about the local church, discipleship and building relationships for the purpose of pointing people to a relationship with Jesus. We are excited to open our home and lives to the people of Denver in the community of Stapleton, where we feel a lifetime call.

About My Church Plant

Journey Point Church is a new church plant just six miles northeast of downtown Denver in the community of Stapleton. Stapleton is home to the largest urban infill redevelopment project in the country and, when finished, home to 75,000 new residents. The average age is 33.4 years and there are two kids per home. Stapleton is community-centric and starving for churches focused on being FOR the community and not just IN it. 

Journey Point exists to point people toward a journey with Jesus. We are launching February 10, 2019, but God is already doing a great work in bringing families to join us on the journey, as well as people giving their lives to Christ. Our strategy is to focus "Up in Worship, Out in Mission and Down in Discipleship." Our vision is to be a catalyst for multiplication in Denver, the West and the World. 

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.

Pray

For churches with whom we partner as they prepare to send out missionary teams to help us point people toward a journey with Jesus. For receptive hearts among the people in Stapleton where are serving. For life transformation to happen in the community as we point people to a relationship with Jesus. For churches and individuals to partner with Journey Point and to give of their time, talents and resources. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join us on mission in Stapleton (Luke 10:2).

Participate

Our church is always on the hunt for strong, partner churches who will commit to sending focused mission teams and prayer support. We also know there are missions-minded people in established churches who would love to join a church plant and help it reach the community and launch well. If you would like to have more information about partnering or moving on mission with us, contact lead pastor, Chris Phillips, at chris@journeypoint.org.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant.
