Finding the right church can often be a time consuming and somewhat challenging experience but one devoted Christian says she has created a new, innovative way for believers to find what they’re looking for quickly and easily.

Meta Washington, host of Kirk Franklin’s Praise on Sirius XM Satellite Radio in New York City, launched her website in 2013 as “as a labor of love to help bring Christians together nationwide.” Since then, a growing number of congregants and church leaders around the country have been using the free service to connect with other devotees and expand their congregations.

Users can find their ideal church by simply entering information such as city, state, denomination and even preferred congregation size into the website. Pastors can directly list their church on the site by submitting an online form and Washington recently sat down with The Christian Post to share the idea behind Lets Pray Together.

The following is an edited transcript of The Christian Post’s interview wirh Meta Washington.

The Christian Post: What inspired you to create Let’s Pray Together?

Washington: Well, it started from an on-air segment that I had created a while back. It was created because I had a listener that contacted me to ask if I had known of any churches in the DC area and I said ‘well, I don’t personally but let me put it out there for the listeners’ and when I did, they had so many responses and people were really so enthusiastic about sharing their church information. What I decided at that point was the best way to handle it was to create a website where it would be a database for people to be able to search; either church seekers could look on there … or you could have churches and ministries who wanted to list themselves. It really worked out because most churches only get the opportunity to open their doors for membership once a week but with LPT its available anytime day or night.

A lot of people when they’re looking for a church, it’s kind of like a stone throw in the dark. You go to a new town, you try this church and you try that church but when you say specifically ‘hey, I’m looking for a protestant church that has this type of congregation and this style of preaching’ and you’re very specific about it and then you have somebody respond and say ‘hey, that fits my church and if they decide to come and visit they can see me personally.’ So I’ve had instances where listeners have literally gone to visit a church and kind of met up with the person who made the recommendation. [They] were instantly welcomed when they got there. I mean its difficult sometimes … even though it’s a church and it’s supposed to be welcoming for everyone, it’s human tendency that people kind of click with people they already know well.

I’ve had a pastor that reached out and said ‘hey listen one of my members is relocating and I wanted to know if you could help them find a church when they get to their new home state. I’ve had a lot of parents with kids going off to college … who have reached out and said ‘hey we want our kids to continue going to church even while they’re away. Can you make some recommendations of churches in their town while they’re there. It’s a network that is a win-win for all.
