Conway, Arkansas

New Start: Conway is a growing college town in the northwest of Little Rock with no WELS presence. A group of 19 WELS members has been gathering at a local hotel on Sundays for worship and Bible study with a part-time retired pastor and getting involved in the community as it prepares to launch a brand-new church.

Fast Facts:

  • The Conway population is projected to grow by 24.9 percent (19,827 individuals) in the next 10 years.
  • Conway is called “The City of Colleges” because it is home to three colleges: the University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix College, and Central Baptist College.
  • Conway’s population of younger families and college students, many of whom stay in the area following graduation, provides the opportunity for longevity and growth as families move to the area and grow the community.
