After surrendering my plans to the Lord summer 2020, He gave me the vision for Journeying Zion! God told me He wanted me to bring His daughters together in fellowship and community from all around the world!

After much prayer for the name, I landed on Journeying Zion. This community is all about having a relationship with Jesus with authentic friends walking by your side. Our relationship with Jesus is a lifelong journey. We aren’t designed to journey by ourselves. The goal in our journey together is to always be in Zion - the place where Jesus dwells.
Throughout the Bible Mount Zion is mentioned. It is the mountain of grace. Mount Zion is the place where God dwells and His daughters reside. What a better place to journey together than Zion!
