Church @ The Springs

Campus Pastor - Southwest Campus



Why I Love This Opportunity

Ernest Smith


I love what God is doing in and through Church at the Springs. First, they are seeing incredible growth as they have added over 2000 people to their church in a little over a year. God has blessed their prayer, hard work, and planning. In addition, they are a multiplying church. Not only is Church at the Springs starting new campuses, but they are heavily invested in church plants all around the globe. God is really using their focus on the lost and generosity toward others to reach many in their area and beyond.

About This Organization

Church @ The Springs was launched in 1994 in Ocala, Florida, by Ron and Teddi Sylvia, who were passionate about reaching the unchurched in relevant ways. This innovative spirit has always been at the core of The Springs, with a committed community ready and willing to do whatever it takes to spread The Gospel.

With 15 location changes within the first 15 years, The Springs was launching new churches and multiplying as a church but needed a permanent place to call home. This would become a place that would increase ministry opportunities and the impact The Springs would be able to have in the community. The Springs experienced its first form of multiplication in 2001 by launching a new church. In 2010, The Springs moved into its new and permanent home. With two more campus launches in 2013 and 2015, The Springs continued to grow and learn.

Today, The Springs is well prepared to take its multi-site strategy to the next level of impact, keeping pace with the growing surge of new, unchurched communities. They currently have four campuses and over 5000 people in attendance.

The Springs is committed to serving their local community through school partnerships, food drives, women’s pregnancy centers, and more. Their small groups spearhead the majority of community mission work with the support of our church.

As we seek to steward these future opportunities, the innovative spirit of our church community continues.
