History and Vision

In the summer of 2010 several people began to search for a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus. Out of their desire they formed a home Bible study, and began to see how Holy Spirit moved through them to fulfill the Great Commission.  As they studied the Word – they were filled with truth and power (Dunamis). God’s love and grace spearheaded the group as they ministered to one another, and they began to see life-changing transformations (Sozo).

With a yearning to spread the good news they organized as a church with Pastor Joe Lloyd as the Senior Pastor. We officially launched Spirit and Life Fellowship in August 2011. The church transitioned temporarily from meeting in homes to holding Sunday services in the ballroom at Holiday Inn in Jessup. In December 2012 the church moved to its current location at 6851 Oak Hall Lane, Columbia, Maryland. Since our move to Columbia, Holy Spirit continues to draw people to our doors, and we are excited as we continually seek His presence and see lives transformed!
