Baptism Report – Thanks for Praying!

I shared a prayer request on Saturday about The Journey’s NYC Beach Baptism and I wanted to update you this morning…

Between our NYC and South Florida locations, we have baptized 82 people in beach baptism celebrations over the last two weekends.

In fact, our baptisms are up almost 30% so far this year!

That means THE JOURNEY HAS BAPTIZED OVER 1,000 PEOPLE since we launched in 2002!

I can’t help but remember the first baptism we ever had at The Journey, nine years ago this month. We baptized one person.

There’s nothing like seeing the excitement on the faces of people who are “going public” with their faith in Christ through baptism.

Will you take a moment today to join us in praising God for all these transformed lives?



P.S. Since I have baptism on my mind this week, I’ve come up with a way for us to partner to make a difference (in your church and around the world)…

I want to help you increase your baptisms and make them more celebratory and impactful!

A few weeks ago, I released a brand new “Maximizing Baptism” resource. This is the same step-by-step Baptism process we use at The Journey to help people move from sign-up to celebration.

FIRST, for this week, to celebrate 1,000 baptisms at The Journeywe’re donating $10.00 to for every Maximizing Baptism Seminar ordered, to help bring clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

SECOND, I’ve had my team add in over $99.00 in Additional Bonus Resources to the downloadable “Maximizing Baptism” seminar.

It’s a win-win – your church gets to baptize more people and we get to partner together to provide water to those who need it desperately.

Here’s your link to download this resource:
