Ben Fugate, and his wife Kelly, are both natives of Hazard, Ky.
Together they have 3 awesome kiddos - Kloe (8), Tyson (4), and Lake (2).
Ben is the lead pastor of Journey Christian Church and Kelly is the Worship Leader.
They are very close with their church family, and would love to welcome you to Journey Christian!
You may have heard of church splits, but what about a church merger?
You read that right!
The Journey Church was started in 2009 on Main Street of downtown Hazard by Ben, Kelly, and their first 2 members Joey and Cassandra Johnson.
The church never lacked energy or vision, but the resources were scarce.
Hazard Christian Church was established in the 1920's. The church had great resources but was lacking youth and vision and by the 2000's had dwindled down to 8 members.
God, in his infinite wisdom, knew that what these two churches needed was each other.
In August 2013 the two churches voted to merge together and formed Journey Christian Church. The confirmations and miracles have been evident ever since.
Journey Christian Church has experienced tremendous growth and remains committed to "risk the ocean to rescue one soul stranded in sin."
