Our Mission

JourneyWise aims to equip people on the journey of life to love Jesus and to love like Jesus along the Way.


A Friend for the Journey

JourneyWise began as the passion project of Rev. Shane Stanford, a Methodist minister and author, and Dr. Ronnie Kent, a board-certified pediatrician and behavioral health specialist. These men, whose Christ-centered friendship and fellowship began nearly 40 years ago, wanted to create a platform that allowed leading Christian thinkers, teachers, pastors, and content creators to share insights that help people find their identity in Christ.

Our faith-based content network has enabled us to use the gifts God has given us to help people from all walks of life sit at the feet of Jesus and receive life from his Word. Further, it has transformed a friendship into a force for Christ and His kingdom.

“The Bible tells us that life is a journey, and that union with Christ is the destination. JourneyWise aims to point people to Christ by helping them make every step matter as they love Jesus and love like Jesus along the Way.”
