Who We Are

First of all, we’re so glad you’ve decided to check out the Praise Zone! Let’s get this out on the table first…The Praise Zone isn’t about a building or the campus. (“Huh”, you’re thinking. “That place is a growing ministry, I will be a number !”) Stick with this for a minute…

The Praise Zone is a community of Christ-followers (disciples), in and around the Washington DC/Maryland/ Northern Virginia metropolitan area, who are actively involved in its transformation. We believe life in Christ should never look like life without Him. We are all about living transformed lives, serving those around us, giving sacrificially, gathering with other believers to study the Word of God, and reaching out from wherever God puts us so that others might know Christ’s love. We are Praising God, Embracing People and Changing Lives".

We truly hope this is a place where you’ll be comfortable… whatever your background, or whatever your experience with Church so far. So, welcome, welcome to the Praise Zone. Feel free to poke around on our website, join us live online any Sunday at 8:30 AM or 11:30 AM for an engaging, relevant, uplifting gospel message. We would love to meet you, and we hope you’ll join us soon!

David Porter

David J. Porter, Sr. is the Pastor of Kirkland Memorial 2nd Church of God in Christ (The Praise Zone), one of the fastest growing Church of God In Christ ministries in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. To accommodate the blessings of an increasing number of disciples in ministry, we have added an additional weekend worship service. A new larger worship center and increased parking on the expanding campus of the church has been commissioned by the membership assembly for construction over the next few years to more than triple the capacity of each weekend worship service as we fulfill the vision of Praising God, Embracing People and Changing Lives. Execution of multi-site affiliated locations will be developed as the second phase of our fulfillment of the Great Commission under Pastor Porter's leadership, culminating with a new 3,000 - 4,000 seat worship center as phase three.
