Our Story

The idea for FaithStreet grew out of a practical problem that we faced when we moved to New York City in 2009:

“Why is it so hard to find a church?”


Before FaithStreet, there was no high-quality, online service that helped a newcomer to a city (or to a faith) discover and explore faith communities near them. We talked to many other people across the country who shared the same problem, and we thought we could help them.

Later, after talking to hundreds of pastors and other leaders, we discovered that congregations were also frustrated by their inability to reach people using the Internet. We created FaithStreet to help solve both sides of this problem. On FaithStreet, your congregation can create a great-looking profile that newcomers will visit everyday.

Today, we work with over 12,800 churches across America, and we have helped hundreds-of-thousands of people find and connect with a local faith community. Now, we're creating a simple yet powerful online giving platform for the communities we serve.

And we're just getting started. Please let us know what you think. We love feedback.
