Welcome to Journey Center East Bay
Is there something stirring in you, something waiting or longing to be answered? If you have found your way to this website, it’s very possible that you are spiritually curious, wondering if there’s more. Whatever the reason, we’re glad you’re here. Come as you are, experience the Holy and see what happens…
We are a Christ-centered community of persons who have encountered God’s radical welcome and are being transformed through God’s expansive love. We are companioning with others on their faith journey while offering spiritual practices that help us slow down and pay attention to the movement of God. Our hope is that this place will ignite prayer and care in ourselves and our community.
We see that people are spiritually hungry, so we offer the opportunity for people to learn about spiritual practices that offer peace and possibility. We offer an inclusive and welcoming place for people to share their spiritual journey amidst a time in history filled with fear and uncertainty. We have no agenda to preach, to judge, or to convert anybody. Our vision is to hold sacred space so all who come can experience the Holy and see what happens. All are welcome!
We have two purposes…
- To bring Christ-centered spirituality to our community through prayer, meditation, the arts and other ancient Christian practices. We offer resources, events, gatherings and connections that are both Christ-centered and respectful of all spiritual paths.
- To care for the marginalized through programs that equip and encourages them with practical and spiritual skills.
Journey Center East Bay is not a church or an institution, but a community. It is our desire to offer encouragement, support and resources. We invite you to join us.

Consider this invitation as recorded in the gospel of Matthew (from The Message):
Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you will recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me- watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
