Here are some of the highlights as this part of the the vision is being unfolded. We are grateful for your prayers!

Thank you for praying for Pamela Carraher and Jan Stanish as they discern how this will unfold. If you live in that area and would like to be on their email list to receive announcements about groups, workshops, retreats and other gatherings that will be offered, contact Jan at or Pam at .

Groups of spiritual directors and others are now beginning to meet for prayer and discernment in Pleasant Hill, CA (East Bay), Ripon, CA (Central Valley) and Chicago, IL.

Claremont is a vibrant college town where the Claremont Colleges Consortium, Claremont School of Theology and the Peter Drucker School of Management are located. Although the pace is slower in Claremont than may be typical for Los Angeles, life can still get so fast that we need to be reminded to breathe. This is where the Journey Center fits into our community. Our focus is resting in God and discovering the peace in the journey of a life centered on Christ.

We welcome you to share your life's journey with us. You do not have to be of a certain denomination, creed or faith tradition to participate in our events. "I love the Journey Center Claremont's gatherings, because everyone's perspectives are valued. I feel completely accepted and loved here," one Journey Center Claremont participant shared recently.
