Our Staff

Pastor Jim Groves. Jim served 26 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring in 1997.  In that same year he was ordained as a pastor, fulfilling a God-given purpose he had sensed for a lifetime.  After serving four years on staff with a local church, Jim realized that his real passion was more focused. He found he had a heart for seeing people experience real time freedom and healing through Jesus, as he had himself had been experiencing. This motivated Pastor Jim to complete extensive training on assisting others in their healing, resign his staff position and create Journey Ministries of Central Florida.  He has been married to his wife, Debbie, since 1972 and has two adult children, Mike and Danielle.

Pastor Rudy Gervais. Rudy accepted Jesus as his personal Savior at 18 years of age and within a few years he knew God was calling him into full time ministry. It was during his seminary years that it became clear the area in which God wanted him to serve. He was ordained as a pastor and served as a pastoral counselor at a local church. Almost eight years later God opened the door to begin working at Journey Ministries. Pastor Rudy has always been passionate about seeing people set free from past issues in their lives so the transition to Journey Ministries was an easy one. Rudy and his wife, Debbie, have been married since 1972 and have two grown children, Dena and Andy.
