NORMAN — A metro area church with multiple building sites recently made location changes to ultimately expand its area of outreach.
JourneyChurch.tv, led by the church's founder and senior pastor, the Rev. Clark Mitchell, sold its east Norman ministry site at 1330 E Lindsey to Antioch Community Church of Norman in January. JourneyChurch.tv's final Sunday at its east Norman site was Jan. 27.
Mitchell said the sale was made for several reasons. He said the transaction would help improve the church's finances so that it could expand to other areas of the metro area, and it also gave the congregation a chance to help another ministry.
“Journey saw it as an opportunity to help another church and thought it would be a healthy move for the overall church culture in our community,” he said.
Meanwhile, JourneyChurch.tv opened a new southwest Oklahoma City ministry site at 10601 S Western. The first Sunday at the new Oklahoma City site was Feb. 3.
Mitchell said the new campus was launched because the church's elder and senior leadership teams saw an opportunity to serve people living in the southwest Oklahoma City and Moore areas.
