What is a new faith community?

  • A New Faith Community is typically birthed by an existing church:
  • A New Faith Community can be identified as a second campus
  • A New Faith community can be on an existing campus
  • A New Faith Community can be in almost any location; a movie theater, coffee shop, warehouse, shopping center, school, large home, city park, music venue, restaurant, funeral home, or other location identified by the church or churches involved that can host an effective faith community. Innovation and creativity is welcomed.
