Pastor David Longenecker, and his wife Charity, dreamed of planting a church that would make an impact for God’s kingdom both locally and globally. God gave them three simple objectives: (1) to usher people into a meaningful relationship with God, (2) establish them in a Bible-based sense of self-worth, and (3) help people find and fulfill the plan of God for their life. So, in August of 2006, Strong Faith Family Church began as a small group Bible study consisting of 5 people committed to seeing this dream become a reality.
From the beginning, Pastor David focused on reaching out to the non-churched community by building relationships through outreaches and small groups. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday services, and the simple style of Strong Faith Family Church brought immediate growth. In its first year, the church grew from 5 committed people to over 60 in weekly attendance. By its second year over 100 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ. God is at work at Strong Faith Family Church. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple, and people are free to go after God with passion!
