The development of new churches (New Starts) is one of the primary objectives of the Virginia District Church of the Nazarene. The birth of a new congregation infused with hope and determined to reach its community with the love of Christ is a faith enhancing story. The churches listed below are offically part of our NewStart efforts in Virginia.

For information about New Start Churches, contact one of the pastors below or our District Director of New Starts, Dr. Phil Fuller at 804-739-4884 or
