I'm a musician who works as a contractor. This church namely the leader is a crock. I'm owed almost $1000 dollars with no resolution or recourse to speak of. Stay away from this place. You'd think Church leaders would conduct themselves as honorable. Think again!!! I strongly recommend some place else.

Pros:- Choir is great- Bishop Joseph Simmons is entertaining, if a bit basic- People are nice but you get mostly ignoredCons:- Bishop Joseph Simmons uses his congregation to peddle multi-level marketing scams. He is a member of this company called "5linx", which is a known scam company and it's shameful that he uses his congregation to bolster his bank account.

His congregation is brainwashed and talk nonstop about what an amazing person he is, but I saw nothing of that when I got up close to him.
Ive been a member of this church. For thirty years and we have a really good church and awsome pastorgod bless
