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 provided information to help a newcomer to a city (or to the faith) discover and explore churches and Christian 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, we discovered that churches 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 church can create a great-looking profile that newcomers will visit everyday.
We’ve spent the last year working with about 400 churches in New York City. We’ve helped over 5,000 people find and connect with a local church during the last 6 months. Now, we’re taking FaithStreet to every city and town in America.
And we're just getting started. Please let us know what you think. We love feedback.
