Grow your faith. Discover your purpose. Make a difference:

Journey Church offers a great space for Southeastern University students to enjoy classes and experience hands-on ministry learning. In addition to your degree learning, students of SEU at Journey Church have the opportunity to learn and grow alongside of the Journey Church Staff in Cleveland, OH.

Small Community

Big Experience:

Your experience at SEU at Journey Church involves more than earning a degree. You’ll experience authentic relationships through small groups, powerful worship services, one on one mentoring times, exciting events and more! As part of the Journey family, you will be an important and valued member of our community and team.

Real Community:

We believe real life change happens in the context of community, so getting connected can make all the difference. We all crave a sense of belonging, to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.

Spiritual Life:

We provide the opportunity to have a life-changing experience every weekend through authentic worship, a practical message, and an opportunity to respond to God.

Hands-on Ministry

We not only facilitate an education taught by believers, but Journey provides an environment where focused discipleship and mentoring plays a role in your personal and spiritual growth and development.



The Journey Practicum is a hands-on learning experience unlike any other program. Thanks to our partnership with Southeastern University, the Journey Practicum enables students to apply what they learn in the classroom to real-life ministry situations, alongside a Journey Team Member, in order to gain experience and to develop skills related to the student’s passions.
