ORGANIZATION
Lifepoint Church began in 2005 in Fredericksburg, Virginia, when Pastor Daniel Floyd and a group of approximately 50 people had a desire to make a difference in their community. The largest campus in Fredericksburg remained portable for nine years as the church grew. A new facility was built at the current site on Central Park Blvd. and opened in the fall of 2014. Since its inception, the heart of Lifepoint has been to reach people who are far from God. Lifepoint Church has now expanded to five simultaneous locations, with a growing weekly attendance that reaches over 5,000 people. Pastor Daniel Floyd, a dynamic and creative leader and communicator, leads Lifepoint Church.

 

LOCATION
The city of Fredericksburg, VA sits amidst the rolling hills of Northern Virginia, just 50 miles south of Washington, DC and 60 miles north of Richmond, VA. Many residents commute to work to Washington, DC or Richmond by car, bus, or rail system.
