Our Pastors & Staff

Jesse & Missy Quiroz

Senior Pastors

Jesse, along with his wife Missy and two boys Micah and Javan, started Journey Church in 2009. They have a rich ministry background that has served to bless our community. He is a graduate of Valor Christian College in Columbus, Ohio and has continued his pastoral studies through Global University in Springfield, Missouri. He was a youth pastor for 10 years, here locally in Lake St. Louis and in Prescott, Arizona. He also served on staff at World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio for two years before planting Journey Church. In 2015 they received the biggest surprise of their lives...their daughter Aisha, adding one more piece to this amazing family!

He and his family have a passion for people...bottom line. They strive to make Journey Church a place where anyone can feel right at home...and consider it a true honor to pastor the people that make up Journey.
