why we are a little diffERENT

Below you'll see an overview of the amazing people that make up the DNA of Journey Church.  We believe in making space for people's giftings and callings and do what we know is biblically correct and proper to partner with and participate in Kingdom ministry. 

lead Pastors

vince & Lora Farrell

Vince and Lora have been married since 1997 and have two amazing children, Emma and Bennett. They moved their family to Hopkinsville in 2011 to become the pastors of what was then called, Christ Community Church.  They changed the name to Journey Church in 2016 as it better reflected the vision to help others on their spiritual journey.   They are very relational and love getting to connect with people to help them unlock their purpose.  They provide the oversite, leadership, vision, direction of the church alongside the elders of the church.

Associate pastor: Discipleship

Will grosskopf

Pastor Will and his wife, Julie, have been with us since the beginning.  You won't find anyone who is making disciples like them.  They carry the unique balance of truth and love in every relationship they pour into.    Will is a teacher by calling and also serves as one of the elders on the leadership team.

community pastor

Dr. Kamarr Richee'

There are a group of Pastors who are passionate about seeing churches in this area working together.   Journey Church and Edgewood Baptist church are doing just that by partnering in seeing the Richees reaching out in the community.

Dr. Kamarr and his wife, Laura, lead the youth ministry at Edgewood while also being able to be hands on with community outreach here in Hopkinsville; this also allows Dr. Kamarr to minister and pour into the body of believers here at Journey Church.  They are an amazing part to the body of Christ and you too will love getting to know them.

Edgwood Baptist and Journey Church are paving a way of an "Undivided Church."

What We Believe

The main focus of journey church

Every church has a list of beliefs that do create its foundation of faith. Our Journey Church beliefs are as follows:

  • We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe in one God who reveals Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
  • We believe marriage is the union between one man and one woman.
  • We believe God created man and woman completely without the need of sexual altercation.
  • We believe in evangelistic and missionary fervor and endeavor.
  • We believe in salvation through the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in water baptism by immersion. We believe the believer is kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
  • We believe that divine healing is available on the basis of atonement.
  • We believe in sanctification and holiness of heart and overcoming life as Scriptural requirements for Christ-followers.
  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the manifestation gifts, the five-fold ministry, and end-time revival.
  • We believe in Christ’s personal return in power and great glory, in His reign, and everlasting dominion.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those who are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life are referred to as Heaven, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment are referred to as Hell.
