FaithStreet is an app that will help people find a good church fit.  At least that’s the hope of it’s founder Sean Coughlin.

Churches fill out an online profile with key info on their church.  App users can then find churches that interest them.

The app is funded by online giving (with FaithStreet taking a cut of any giving that comes as a result of people using the app).

It’s kind of like a Yelp app, only for church hunters.

But there’s one difference:  There are no customer reviews. Coughlin says: ”We reject the idea of reviewing churches…A church is much more like a family than it is a restaurant or a mechanic. That means you’ll never be crowned mayor of your church based on how many times you check in. But you’ll also never read a scathing review of the community you love.”

Thoughts?  Great idea?
