Loved the "Rush" of the Worship Experience! Great strategic public engagement. Excellent volunteer recruitment and motivation. Congregants seem to have an overall feeling of authentic connectivity. Totally appreciated the technology applications. Pastor is an excellent motivational public speaker.

Couldn’t ask for a better church. On fire for God. Making waves for Jesus. Not my home church, but I had to see what the buzz was about. Very impressed and thankful for what they are doing in the Global Church.

Pastor Steven has such a gift for preaching and his messages tend to hit home every time. If you have the opportunity to experience a baptism, there is a thread that runs consistently in the testimonies.... 'I was broken; I came to Elevation and was...More

Elevation Church is an inspirational, Bible based, exciting, uplifting service. I felt genuinely welcomed, was shown around, and was comfortable every minute.
