Fairfax Community Church
11451 Braddock Road
DescriptionFairfax Community Church is located in the Washington, DC metro area. Our mission is to engage the culture with the good news of the Kingdom and invite people into a community committed to following Jesus. Fairfax Community is growing rapidly, with a current weekly attendance of 2,000 and an impact that reaches around the world.
Our Fairfax Fellows are gifted, high-capacity, exceptional leaders, as you would expect them to be. They’re also more than that. Fairfax Fellows are characterized by their servant hearts and kingdom mindsets, which is why they become fully a part of our team during their 12-month fellowship. This isn’t an internship program (though we have that, too), this is a year of your life that puts you in the best possible position for whatever direction you choose next. Maybe you want to work in a healthy, growing church gaining wisdom and insight from some of the best church leaders in the country. Maybe you are thinking about seminary, but want to have some church experience to bring into the classroom with you. Whether your talents lie in worship arts, global outreach, or student ministries, we want to journey with you as you learn and grow in your calling.
