Jack & Charity Watkins

Senior Pastors
Jack & Charity Watkins serve as lead pastors of Journey Church since August of 2015. They have been married since 2003 and have two beautiful daughters, Taylor and Ava. They've served in youth, children's, worship, state denominational leadership, and senior pastorate since beginning their ministry together in 2003.
Pastor Jack studied theology at Lee university in Cleveland Tennessee and with almost two decades of vocational ministry, provides a solid foundation for senior pastorate at Journey Church in Vancouver Washington.
The basis for their ministry comes from a heart for relationship and "doing life together". Their driving force behind the vision for ministry at Journey Church is  focused on relationship based on the example of Jesus.

Ricky Bishop

Youth & Young Adults Pastor
Ricky felt the call of God to move from his home in Tennessee to join us at Journey Church on our journey to winning Portland for Jesus. He made the trek across country in 2019 and immediately jumped in with both feet and served as the Sunday Production Director and now we are honored to have him leading our youth ministries here at Journey Church.

Ryan Watkins

Care Pastor
Pastor Ryan came on the Journey Leadership Team in September of 2015 when he moved with his family to Portland from Costa Mesa. Pastor Ryan has his bachelors in pastoral studies from Life Pacific Bible College and brings next level leadership to the table. Most importantly, Ryan's heart for people and ministry is second to none and we're blessed to have him and his wonderful bride on our team.

Josh Rodriguez

Associate Pastor
If you wanna feel better about yourself, and if you need a boost in joy, spend a few minutes with Josh Rodriguez. You'd be hard pressed to find a better man, more passionate person, or anyone with a deeper desire to see people find Jesus than Josh. Josh not only serves as a vital part of our worship ministry with his wife Cassie, but he also oversees our entire youth department from nursery all the way to young adults.
