We are grateful for generous partner churches across the state and for visionary church planters that are making this church planting movement possible. With Florida’s population growth crossing the 20 million mark, making the Sunshine State the third largest state in the nation, there is no better time to partner in the planting of new, life-giving churches than now.
At Florida Church Partners we believe that new church plants as well as new multi-site church campuses are critical strategies for reaching 1% of Florida's growing population. Multi-site campuses are proving to be one of the most effective ways to reach un-churched people across our state and nation.
In 2017 we are partnering with Christ's Church in Jacksonville to launch two new campuses. The first is their St. Augustine Campus near World Golf Village, which is situated the fastest-growing county in Florida. The second is their River City Campus, which is located in an under-served area of Jacksonville. We are excited to partner with one of Florida’s largest churches to reach more people who need Jesus through these exciting new campuses.
This year we have also partnered with Salty Church in Ormond Beach to launch their third campus which is located in Flagler Beach. For over 10 years, Salty’s unique beach vibe and vision to rescue and empower people has helped it become one of FCP’s most successful plants. It’s exciting to see that vision expand into Flagler Beach.
And on September 24, 2017 Lake Nona's newest church will be launched! Thrive Church is being planted in this fast-growing region of Orlando which has emerged as a highly influential community with its globally renowned Medical City. With only one church building serving a community of 58,000 that will triple in population by 2025, there is real need for a new church like Thrive in Lake Nona.
