Journey was founded in 1980 as Chinese Presbyterian Church of Orange County to minister to English-speaking Chinese Americans. Reverend Wayland Wong led a small group of families from True Light Presbyterian Church at Circle View Elementary School in Huntington Beach. This new church emphasized a welcoming, community-oriented atmosphere and from just a handful of people, Journey has grown to a congregation of nearly 300.
In 1994, the church purchased its current campus and moved to Westminster. Reverend Wong retired in 2007 and Chinese Presbyterian was renamed Journey Evangelical Church. Led by Senior Pastor Richard Pfeil, Journey’s focus is to preach the basic Gospel message that when received by the power of the Holy Spirit, will transform a person to be not only saved by grace spiritually, but to live by grace personally.
To let Jesus live through us. (Galatians 2:20)
To transform ourselves and our neighborhoods into a community of faith through Christ-like service. (Matthew 5:16)
