Jericho Road is a Christian community on a journey with God. We celebrate our relationship with Him through friendship,
serving, weekly worship, and learning how to follow Jesus as a lifestyle – together – in Port Alberni and Nanaimo.
Everyone is welcome on the Jericho Road, as long as you’re not perfect. 🙂
If you have any questions or need more information, please browse the website (currently being developed) or call the office and

Our mission has three strands at its core
Becoming family…. We recognize that many people have had negative experiences with Church or even perceptions about
Christianity. Therefore we want to provide a welcoming and safe environment where they belong before they necessarily know
what they believe. We encourage questions and there is no pressure or conditions attached to entering our community.
Encountering God…. Similarly the person of God can be confusing at first depending on our history. We believe God is good and
kind, not at all shocked or disillusioned by who we are (or are not) and that he loves all of us unconditionally and profoundly.
No-one enjoys sitting in the bleachers observing an empty field, arena, or stadium. They come for a game, an encounter, an
experience. Unfortunately many of us have not encountered very much at ‘church’ and understandably have given up, or left
disillusioned. We believe that God wants to be encountered by us more than we want to encounter Him. If we provide
opportunity and space He will meet us. So we are intentional about raising the expectation that the reality of God will be known
and experienced…. and it will be more positive and life-giving than we ever imagined.
Impacting the world… If our experience of Christian community (church) is positive, and our encounter with God is real and
affirming, then we won’t be able to keep it to ourselves. We want to share God’s love with others by serving etc……. One of the
great advantages of belonging to a local Church is that we are enabled to more together for others than is often possible alone.
“I know what it’s like to be out there…to get a new pair of socks and a coffee and a couple smokes, I loved it,” she said. “I knew when they were coming, I really looked forward to it because it gave me that little bit of hope that somebody cared so that’s what we’re trying to provide.”read more
