Recommended Churches in Grand Rapids, MI & Beyond, Recommended USA Churches, Churches in Grand Rapids, List Of Good Churches, Nice Churches, Great Churches


Hi there :D! Looking for a church home? I will by God’s grace update this page with recommended local churches as I come across them. Please scroll down for a list of recommended U.S.A churches (states, cities, towns, townships, villages and counties across the country), as well as recommended churches specific to the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. For a much bigger list of churches in your local area, visit: http://www.superpages.com/yellowpages/C-Churches – click on your state, and then your city. You will see a huge list of churches in the area. You can further filter the search results based on your preferences (e.g. by denomination or zip code).

I pray you find our list of USA Recommended Churches helpful (see list below). They are good churches, nice churches, great churches, but I don’t think any church on this list is perfect. I am however praying and believing along that God will lead and guide you to the right church for *you*.

If you have any further questions about finding a church, please let me know.

1. Renaissance Church in Roseville CA

I think Pastor Julian, the lead pastor of Renaissance Church, is just a huge blessing from God and a breath of fresh air! I have never had the opportunity to visit this church, but Pastor Julian used to be one of the senior level pastors in my current church, Grand Rapids First Assembly Of God (See top of this page for more info), and that’s how I met him. He moved to California years ago and became the lead pastor of the Renaissance Church. Pastor Julian also authors a blog on The Renaissance Church website. I have definitely been blessed by several of his writings.
