Thank you for visiting our page to learn more about us. We are a new church in North Laurel, MD.

My name is Temi Akinsanya and I have the pleasure of leading this adventure to see Jesus change lives. My wife, Modesta, and I have been blessed to call Laurel home for over 10 years. I spent the first 11 years of my life in Lagos,  Nigeria while my wife spent her first 6 years in Lome, Togo. 

I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Morgan State University and my Masters degree in Biblical Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary. In addition to being the Pastor at Restoration Church, I am also a Data Scientist by profession. I have been blessed to serve God's Church in some capacity over the past 10+ years.

Modesta graduated with her Bachelor's degree in Sociology from University of Maryland College Park and her Masters degree in Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. She is a Licensed Mental Health Therapist by profession. 

We are excited for what God is doing and will do in Laurel and beyond.

We want to help people experience Jesus in a transformative and genuine way. If you've been looking for a place to belong and flourish, we would love to see you.
