Meet Our Elders


Tim Holley

Lead Pastor

Why are you at The Journey?
I’m at the Journey because it is a church that is intentional about proclaiming the gospel, investing in people’s lives, and redeeming our world. I love that it seeks to engage people by pointing them to the hope that we have in Christ. I’m humbled that the Lord would allow me an opportunity to be part of that mission.

What do you love about St. Louis?
St. Louis is home. I love it because it has been a place that has been central to significant events and people in my life.


Eric Gregory

Pastor of Care & Counseling



Why are you at The Journey?
A few different reasons. For one, I believe that God wants me and my family here. And second, the men and women I have encountered in leadership here truly love Jesus and want to serve him and have a hunger to know him more deeply. They also love people and want to serve them.

What do you love about St. Louis?
Other than the fact that it produced Nelly? It has some of the best restaurants, museums, and parks anywhere in the country. Plus, it’s just home now.


Eric Miller

Why are you at The Journey?
I work at the Journey because I believe that the local church is the community of people that God has chosen to live amongst. I believe in the vision of The Journey and the fact that it is a gospel centered community.

What do you love about St. Louis?
Toasted Ravioli, Imos Pizza, Pork Steak, Budweiser, the Cardinals, the Rams, the Blues and high humidity and hot summers and freezing cold winters. My wife, The Journey (my church), my job and where I live, Webster Groves, in that order. I love the fact that there is always something to do, and the diversity of people that are always doing something somewhere.

Joel Steele



Why are you at the Journey?
We came for the teaching and stayed for the coffee. Then we felt called to invest in the vision by engaging people and our community in gospel conversation so that our neighborhoods and city could be transformed. This place is led by imperfect people who are serious about heralding the scandalous truth of the gospel and is filled by people I love.


What do you love about St. Louis?
As a transplant, I have an inexplicable romantic relationship with this city. I love running through the old neighborhoods and imaging what they were like in their heyday and envisioning them getting back there again. I love the architecture and the craftsmanship and the pursuit of perfection the builders must have had when crafting these beautiful old brick homes. I love the eclectic group of individual neighborhoods, the many great places to eat & drink, great city parks, and cultural attractions that a big city offers…but also that I can get anywhere I need in twenty minutes and that my neighborhood is like a small town. St. Louis feels like a scrappy underdog on the verge of a breakthrough. Who doesn’t like an underdog?


Josh Wilson

Why are you at The Journey?
I longed to be apart of a church that took the truth of the Gospel seriously. So much so that they were willing to pursue him, and lay their life down for their city. I found that place, and continue to find that place here at The Journey.

What do you love about St. Louis?
Coming from a small town in Louisiana, we love living in the city. The city is filled with neighborhoods with their own identity, and has been a great place to meet people and raise our kids. The parks, restaurants, and professional sports are enough to keep us entertained for years to come.


Josiah Cox


JR Peebles

Elder

Paul Caudell

Why are you at The Journey?
Michelle and I have been serving in various capacities at The Journey since before it launched as a church and began holding public services. Then about three years ago, we began to consider whether our gifts would better be used to help a pastor friend start a new church in the city. We realized we didn't want to stay at The Journey unless we felt called to stay, and we didn't want to leave unless we felt called to leave. Around that time Jeremy Irwin asked me to consider becoming an elder at Hanley Road, and after months of wrestling over it, Jeremy's asking became a pretty clear indication of our calling. We intend to continue leading and serving at The Journey until we are called elsewhere.

What do you love about St. Louis?
I love the big, old historic homes and big parks like Forest Park, Tower Grove, and Carondelet, and the various textures and flavors in the many neighborhoods. I love the independent music and spirit of KDHX and live music at places like Off Broadway, the Tap Room, and BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups. I love great food at places like Iron Barley, Taqueria del Bronco, and Mom's Deli. I love the City Museum and Vintage Bike Night at Schlafly Bottleworks. I love the great backpacking, camping, mountain biking, and rivers all around St. Louis. But mostly, I love being able to experience all these places with Michelle, our children, and our friends and neighbors.


Randy Moore


Tim Yeadon

Why are you at The Journey?
The first time we came to The Journey we heard about a mission to Love God, Connect People and Transform the World. That is exactly what I believe the Gospel calls me to do and I see that mission lived out at our church every day.

What do you love about St. Louis?
St. Louis is a perfect balance between big city and small town. I love all of the different neighborhoods and communities that make up our city.
