About Us


​Welcome to the Journey Church website.  We believe the journey in Christ is the journey of the lifetime.  Each step along the journey provides an opportunity to experience God in a life-changing way.  To explore his goodness, love and grace, to find purpose and meaning and to participate in His great mission
Whether you are a seasoned follower of Jesus Christ looking for a life-giving church, or whether you're just exploring ideas about God and faith, our commitment is to be a church that welcomes all who desire to know God more fully. Our commitment is to provide safe and nurturing children's programs, positive and challenging youth programs, a family-building environment, meaningful friendships, and dynamic worship services in a spiritually growing and alive community of faith. We welcome you and your family.

Who are we?

We are a smaller church family located in beautiful semi-rural Damascus, OR, 30 minutes SE of Portland. Our church family is age-balanced with joyful kids, awesome teens, hard-working parents and loving seniors. Together, we encourage one another through participation in ministry, authentic relationships, fun events, worship and Biblical discipleship.

Our history began in 1973 with the planting of Damascus Assembly of God in rural Damascus. Within a couple years the church grew and built our existing facility. Over the years the church has been blessed with many Lead Pastors, associates, staff and leaders who have contributed to our influence and vibrant ministry in the community. Today, we have updated our facilities, ministries, and even a new name, The Journey Church.  Pastor Tim & Charlene Koetitz have been at The Journey Church since July of 2006 and we are blessed to have them and their family lead our church.
