How do you create a church name?

To create a church name, begin by thinking of the type of environment you want to build within your church. For example, is it modern and fun, reverent, peaceful, or traditional? Here are some tips to help:

  1. If you want a welcoming name, you might choose some features of the church’s area. You can use the city name, partial city name, or some natural features. Is it in the woods, the city, near a river, or the mountains? Riverdale, Mountainstream, Heartland, and Streamsong all make great names.
  2. Do you have a particular area of teaching you feel strongly about? You might be able to use this to create a name. Examples include Baptism, His Children, Resurrection, Compassion, and Heaven.
  3. Use the generator above to either pick a name or get a list of the type of names you like to create your own ideas.
