    Freedom Church in Acworth, Georgia. See what’s going on there at http://www.freedomchurch.tv The sermon starts in the parking lot with volunteers and teams that love to serve because they get to serve. I grew up in very traditional churches when we went to church at all, Freedom Church is miles from that. We’re under the radar now but it’ll only be a few more years and this movement is going to go far beyond the few cities one campus is currently impacting.

    I know people at The Crossing and at Hillside. Great people. Great churches. I would say keep an eye on Christ’s Church of the Valley in San Dimas with Jeff Vines. Great place. Huge influence. Which is why I accepted a position there.

    Zion Church in Landover, Maryland. Senior Pastor Keith Battle.

  7. Will Laohoo says:

    Great list! I’m in NJ, so I’m glad to see Liquid on the list!

    I’ll also put in for my church, Princeton Alliance Church (www.princetonalliance.org). Doing much overseas as well as in the local community!

    Church of Eleven22 Is completely gospel based in its approach. An awesome church.

  9. Real Life Christian Church is definitely worth checking into. Real Life is impacting and changing lives all across Central Florida with their 5 campuses. A truely amazing bible teaching church!!

  10. Harley Waugerman says:

    I’m only familiar with the Church of Eleven 22 and Pastor JOBY Martin. If the other churches preach the gospel and make disciples with the passion and focus as this church then we are blessed!!!

  11. Eleven22 is the church I attend now. Real life is the church I attended for 3 years while I was living in Orlando.
