“Welcoming Spirit and Excellent Biblical Teaching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Pastor Howard John Wesley is a phenomenal pastor and preacher. He's charismatic, very intelligent, and spot on with his theological knowledge. The environment is warm and inviting. The choirs are excellent. There are ministries offered to serve almost anyone.

“Great Church with Wonderful Choir”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have visited this church several times and always enjoy the music portion of the service. Everyone there is very friendly and welcoming. The service is quite long compared to what I am accustomed to so I don't stay for the entire service; but the pastor is very good and I enjoy my visits for their many special concerts and events.
