According to the Smiths, their church attracts more than 10,000 people each week to its five locations in Washington State and California, including its Wednesday-evening service at the historic Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, where the front rows are frequently reserved for celebrities and the back doors are staked out by paparazzi.
The church’s branch in Los Angeles has been attended by celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian, Ciara and Russell Wilson, and Selena Gomez.
The Smiths introduced Justin Bieber to Carl and Laura Lentz, leaders of the New York outpost of Australian megachurch Hillsong, which many of the Smiths’ congregants including Bieber and his wife, Hailey Bieber attend when they visit the East Coast.

In 2018 November, Churchome debuted an app, Churchome Global, that encourages users to stream sermons, join community chat rooms, and digitally pray for one another. The app’s prayer feature looks like a newsfeed. Users post their prayers instead of status updates and receive notifications when others have “prayed” for them.
