Meet Our Elders

Curtis Gilbert

Lead Pastor

Why are you at The Journey?
I have both enjoyed & respected The Journey as a ministry for many years, considering it a gift to the Metro East area. Nevertheless, I never thought that I would be a part of it. It was through the persistent prodding of my good friend, Shane Fast, that God allowed me to sense him calling me to The Journey. To think that God would allow me to serve with such great people who both seek to love Him passionately and serve their neighbors well, is mind-blowing!!

What do you love about St. Louis?
I absolutely love its diversity & FOOD!!!! I am a lover of soul food and you can’t go wrong with Sweetie Pie’s. Even though St. Louis is cool, I gotta show love to the east side of the river. From the cultural events, like Art on the Square in Belleville, to the great parks, like the Family Sports Park in O’Fallon, you really can’t go wrong. Even though St. Louis folks often forget that we exist, we have much to offer in the Metro East.
