The Smith Center for Evangelism and Church Growth has established an initiative of creating 100 New Faith Communities in three years. Below you will find links to general information, commonly asked questions and suggestions on how you can immediately begin creating new faith communities.


Initial Questions

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.
