We meet Sunday mornings at 10:30 A.M. in the Emerald Theatre, located in Downtown Mount Clemens. When you arrive, grab some locally roasted coffee, tea and doughnuts at our café.


Our worship services include live music and a relevant message from the Bible.


Services last about an hour and 15 minutes.


After many years of hearing God’s call to plant a church in Metro Detroit, Chad and Jennifer Nelson and their family moved from a lead pastor role in Missouri back to Michigan. Without jobs or a home, they watched as God provided for their needs in miraculous ways. After that, God opened doors for them to be able to worship in the newly renovated and historical Emerald Theatre in Downtown Mount Clemens. After months of outreach and assembling a core team of servants, they held their first service on Easter Sunday, April 2017. Throughout the next few months, they prepared for a Grand Opening service on Sunday, September 10th, 2017.


The story of Journey Church continues to be written as we “invite our community on a Journey to discover Jesus.” We are passionate about helping people who are far from God to know Him and discover His plan for their lives.
