New Faith Communities

The Virginia Annual Conference takes the planting of new faith communities seriously as one way of living out the Great Commission. We have an ambitious plan to begin 250 new faith communities in the next 30 years. We hope this section helps those involved in the task of planting to:

  • learn about current new faith community projects,
  • find resources to help you and your new faith community as you do the important work of beginning a new faith community,
  • find forms and information for taking the next steps to begin a new faith community out of your existing church and much more.

We invite you to explore the possibilities of being even more effective in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world through the beginning of new faith communities.
