A growing community of people on a life-changing journey with Jesus where everybody’s welcome, nobody’s perfect, and through Jesus anything's possible.


Pastor Dustin

Hello and welcome to Journey Christian Church.  My name is Dustin Aagaard, and I serve as the Lead Pastor here at Journey.

Whether you’ve never been to church or you are stopping by to check us out for the first time, we are so glad you are here.  Our heart at Journey is to create a place where everybody’s welcome because nobody’s perfect, and through Jesus, anything’s possible.

My wife, TJ, and I grew up in the same church and met in middle school.  We have three incredible kids, Riley, Callie Joy, and Darby, and we couldn’t be more grateful and proud of each of them. I am a Floridian through and through.  I love the beach, golf, and cheering on my favorite teams: the Orlando Magic, the Miami Dolphins, and the Florida Gators.

When God called our family to Journey in 2017, I felt Him give me a clear job description.  It was to pray and prepare for revival.  I don’t take that job lightly, and that’s what I’ve been doing, praying and preparing for a fresh move of God to take place in Central Florida. For most of my career, I was a Youth Pastor and a Family Pastor at several churches.  I also worked for an incredible parachurch organization called YoungLife.

In 2003, at the age of 23, I survived a battle with cancer.  That was a wake-up call to not waste my life or my leadership but to steward both well.  Ever since then, I have become passionate about three things:
1.  Reaching out to love others
2.  Serving the hurting
3.  Developing leaders for ministry

Those are the three pillars of our church, with our vision statement being,

“Journey Christian Church is a community of fully devoted disciples of Jesus who reach out to love our neighbors, serve the hurting, and develop leaders for ministry.”

I’m so glad you stopped by, and I pray God does something fresh and new in and through you!  

I’m loving the Journey!

What To Expect

Everybody’s Welcome. 
You will see a diverse group of people at Journey from many social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds and we love that! You will be welcomed warmly and surprised by joy. By the way, we dress casually around here. Come as you are!

Nobody’s Perfect. 
The music, messages, and ministries you will discover at Journey reflect the fact that Jesus is a friend of sinners…just like us. You can expect to be both encouraged and challenged by Pastor Dustin and our other teaching pastors. The worship gatherings typically last about 60 minutes.

Through Jesus, Anything’s Possible. 
We have learned that when God is at work, all things are possible. We don’t have God figured out and honestly, we’re not trying to. We’re just loving the life-changing journey with Jesus.

Plan on arriving to the campus at least 15 minutes before the service starts. This will give you time to park, check your kids into their classrooms and grab a cup of coffee before the service begins. You’ll want to make sure you get into the Worship Center before the music starts.

For Your Kids

Our Journey Kids Ministry is designed for children from birth through fifth grade. Your child experiences age-appropriate teaching, music and fun activities designed to introduce them to a life-changing journey with Jesus. Journey Kids  is available  on Sunday mornings and is led by staff and volunteers who will be there each week to care for and love on your child. By the way, we utilize a check-in system that ensures a safe environment for your child and also allows for efficient drop-off and pick-up for parents.

Our Journey Students Ministry is designed for middle school and high schoolers. We want to see students take next steps on their journey with Jesus and become pioneers for the Gospel in every area of their lives. Our vision to accomplish this starts with a conversation, leads to transformation, and inspires multiplication.
Discover Your Journey is a gathering for people who are looking to learn the heart, history, and vision of Journey and begin to get connected in some way, shape, or form.

Join us for one evening of fun, food, and fellowship as we help you discover your next steps at Journey! Choose the date that works best for you but you only need to register and attend one time.
