About the Location: 

The original campus and the Stewarts Creek campus of LifePoint Church are both located in Smyrna.

It is a town with a blended workforce, consisting of both blue-collar and white-collar professionals. Of particular interest, is that Smyrna has more people who work in areas related to computers and math than 95% of the places in the US. Smyrna is an ethnically diverse town, and the people who call Smyrna home describe themselves as belonging to various racial and ethnic groups.


Another of the LifePoint campuses is located in the Murfreesboro area. Its dedication to creating ‘a better quality of life’ landed the city on the Top 100 Places to Live in Money Magazine.
