Over the past five years, we have witnessed God's movement through our DeLand Location, where we have been gathering on weekends at DeLand High School. For the past two years, we've been praying that God would lead us to a building which would provide us a more permanent presence in the community.

We are thrilled to announce that we have purchased in cash the Historic Dreka Theater in Downtown DeLand! Now that we are in the building, we begin Phase 2. In this next phase, we’ll be taking a large step of faith as we raise 2 million dollars to complete renovations. We firmly believe that by transforming this iconic building into the Journey Church Deland Location, we can have a more profound impact in the community by enhancing the quality of our ministries and bringing about positive change for the city and its people that will last for generations.
