In the spring of 2008, the Schwanke family felt led by the Lord to start Faithway Baptist Church in Loudoun County, VA. Faithway is a church plant out of Heritage Baptist in Woodbridge, Virginia. Over the past years, God has done some amazing things. Our first service was held in the Ball's Bluff Elementary School where we experienced the blessings of the Lord for almost 5 years. As we continued to grow, we started to save our pennies and in 2013, we were able to move into a permanent place to call "home" on Lawson Road in Leesburg. By God's Grace, we were able to purchase two flex-space units and turned a warehouse into God's house.
Our prayerful desire at Faithway is that God would use our people to start a gospel-preaching church out of Faithway Baptist Church in the very near future. Ministry within Loudoun County requires many things, and certainly flexibility and creativity are among them. Our prayer is that Faithway Baptist Church will be a launching pad for many new churches both here in the United States and around the world until Jesus returns.
