In August of 2003, a small group of believers met to pray in Portlaoise with the vision of seeing a “spirit-filled” church planted in the area. By December, things took form as James & Rachel Krechnyak, founding pastors of Portlaoise Family Worship Centre (PFWC), along with Pastor PJ and Elizabeth Booth (pastors of Open Arms Community Church in Newbridge), and missionaries David and Brigid Cammack, met with three people from the local community to seek God for what He wanted to do.

Within the church, there is a strong emphasis on personal relationship with God, as well as in developing healthy God-centred relationships within the church and into the community. In 2005, the church launched LifeCycle in order to help fulfil its mission. This included a great emphasis on “one on one” discipleship, home groups, and the introduction of a leadership training course that would have trained nearly 25 leaders at different levels of leadership and church planting upon its completion in 2009. Over the years, a variety of events have been run, from concerts; to outdoor barbecues with clowns, face painting, balloons and other entertainment; Christmas carolling at the local shopping centre; Easter programs; Nursing home ministry; and other types of relational evangelism.
