NorthRidge Church rocks. They use the arts, including upbeat contemporary music, skits dance and drama to get the point across that Jesus is the way. Pastor Brad is blessed with a talent for communicating and teaching God's word, and the best thing about him is that he never talks down to us. He puts himself on our level and admits he has things in his life that aren't perfect that he works on also. He adds a lot of humor to his talks and keep ppl engaged. This church has more opportunities to volunteer than I have ever seen at any church I've been to in the last 20 years. I have volunteered in a few areas and have been happy to serve with other like minded Christians. Younger people make up a good portion of the attenders, but all ages attend. The kids and teen programs that I've had experience with are awesome and keep the kids engaged by mixing fun activities in with the teaching. NorthRidge is not for everyone- some like a small church better where everyone knows your name. NorthRidge is what you make it- a big church where you can go in and leave w/o speaking to anyone, or if you get involved with a small group or volunteer group, you can form acquaintances and friendships. I drive 40 min one way, have attended for 6 years, and love it. NorthRidge is certainly worth trying!

At first glance, this church appears to have God dwelling inside as the loud band music radiates while people are seating in a large auditorium with their hand raised. We're not saying that God is not here, we are just saying there is a lot more going on than meets the eye. If you only attend this church for services, you will probably be fine. Be careful ones you begin to serve and get involved. If the church does not feel like you fit into their definition of what they define a Christian to be, they will find ways to get rid of you. People on leadership believe that they are ""holier than thou"" and will make sure you are aware of it. If you try to hold them accountable for anything, they will exterminate you immediately because they believe you will become a threat to their power structure. This church is more of a business organization than a church of God. Every church has it's flaws, but we've all encountered more evil here than good. Be prepared that leadership seeks darkness in people rather than light. If they find something in you that they don't think fits their term of ""Christian"", you will eventually be asked to leave the church. We think that while Brad Powell is an amazing man of God, he is either not aware of these things that occur, or he is afraid that putting an end to them could jeporadize the temple he has created.
