“Jenefer and I have been happily married for 11 years and are blessed with two wonderful boys, Ashton (age 10) and Noah (age 8). On top of being an amazing mom to our boys, Jenefer works part-time at the boys’ school, Orangewood Christian School. I have worked as a certified public accountant for 12 years and I am currently working at Darden Restaurants in their Corporate Tax department. Jenefer and I are very passionate about local and global missions and were grateful to go on our first mission trip as a family last summer with Journey in Ecuador. I have served in the Journey High School Ministry for 8 years and as a table leader at Man-Zone.”
“Karen and I have been members at Journey Christian Church for 5 years and love serving our Lord and Savior in whatever role He puts us in. We are celebrating 12 years of marriage. We own an Aerospace Engineering Consultant business, and I traveled extensively until recently. Karen worked as an Executive Assistant, and even worked on the Journey staff for a time. You’ll find Karen serving on the Connections Team and will see me on the Worship Team. We have enjoyed leading Rooted Groups and leading a life group. We love Journey Christian Church and look forward to continuing to be a part of God’s plan for our church family.”
“Kimberly and I have been married for three years. We are blessed with four adult children, and nine grandchildren. I work as the nuclear sales manager in Central Florida for Jubilant Radiopharma and worked in a variety of capacities for GE Healthcare in previous years. Kimberly has a degree in herbology and works as a health care consultant. For many years, she worked in the financial services industry. We are in our third year being a part of the Journey family. Prior to moving to Florida just over three years ago, I lived in the far western Chicago suburbs and was very involved at Chapelstreet Church in Geneva, Illinois in senior leadership roles, student ministries, and missions. We both attended Meadowbrook Christian Church in Ocala for a time before relocating to Mount Dora. Kimberly served periodically as a greeter there. At Journey, we have been connecting in various ways. We went through Rooted together and then co-led a group the following session. When needed, we help out with the Connections Team. I introduced Ecuador as a mission experience opportunity to Journey over a year ago. Pastor Harvey and I led the first Journey multigenerational team to Hacienda El Refugio, northwest of Quito, Ecuador, last summer. We are members of a Life Group as well.”
“Lori and I have been happily married for nearly 22 years and are blessed with two wonderful sons – Zachary (age 18) and Carson (age 13).
On top of being an amazing mother to Zachary and Carson, Lori works full time as an Admissions Coordinator at Trinity Christian School in Apopka.
I have worked in the Information Technology industry for over 25 years, and I am currently working at AdventHealth in their IT Project Management Office leading strategic acquisitions and growth projects.
I am very passionate about serving in our community, and have been grateful to lead and participate in many opportunities over the 18 years we’ve attended Journey. One of the most rewarding opportunities was leading the Journey Golf Go-Group for over 5 years. This opportunity allowed many of our church family members to combine golf with serving, giving, and fellowship, where we grew as a community of golfers on a life changing journey with Jesus.”
“My wife, Marie, and I have been attending Journey for nearly 7 years. We have been happily married for over 38 years and are long time followers and servants of Jesus Christ. We have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren.
We are both retired; Marie from a 25-year career in sales within the hospitality/vacation industry and myself from a 40-year career in law enforcement. I served for 25 years in Orlando, retiring as Deputy Chief of Police in 1999. We then moved from Southeast Orlando to Mount Dora, where I was the Chief of Police for 15 years.
We love being part of the Journey family and both of us serve at Journey. Marie serves in the Children’s Ministry and I have served in a number of capacities including Security, as a leader in various Men’s Ministries, and leading a Life Group. I’m honored to currently serve on the elder team, and am in my 4th year. I recently became Chairman of the team.
We continue to live in Mount Dora and primarily attend the Lake County Campus. We currently lead a Life Group in Lake County and have completed Rooted.
We are excited to see what God has in store for us and we’re Loving The Journey!!”
