Faithful Community is a conversation about creating community curated for the church by Luke Edwards.

Luke is the Associate Director of Church Development for the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church and a trainer for Fresh Expressions US. He was the founding pastor of King Street Church, a network of fresh expressions (micro faith communities) in Boone, NC.  He grew up in an area of Western Massachusetts that was recently named the most post-Christian metropolitan area in the United States where he joined his first micro faith community

at the age of 14. Between his upbringing and his work in local, regional, and national levels of the Fresh Expressions movement Luke has a unique perspective into how creating micro communities can offer a path for the future of the church in a post-Christian society. He lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he enjoys listening to jazz vinyl and going for walks with his wife and daughter.
