OUR STORY

How it all started...

Sometimes dreams finally come true.  For many years, a group of committed Christ followers dreamed of a new church in St. Mary’s County.  As a result of tons of prayer, sacrificial giving, and the efforts of church planting from New Life Church in White Plains, MD, Real Life Church was launched in fall of 2008.
 
Rev. Todd and Diane Crofford had served in Laurel, DE for 13 years before feeling the call to come and plant Real Life in St. Mary’s County.  From the first day, God has exceeded anyone’s expectations.  In the dozen years since, God has blessed Real Life with a permanent property of over 24 acres, has seen the church through three building programs, and Real Life continues to expand ministries throughout the community.
 
Real Life is a multi-generational church, believing the power of God’s Spirit and the truth of God’s Word is essential for the youngest to the oldest.  We offer hope, healing and the sort of real life that can only come from a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Where we're going...

The Church is people. The work of God will never be defined by budget size or building size. Our greatest joy is to see each person committed to making disciples by reaching their Oikos (their personal world) for Jesus.  In order for that to happen, we are committed to planting additional church locations.  We want people to be able to drive to and be closely involved with their local church. That was why we we planted, and that is why Church planting is in our DNA.
 
We envision a growing impact on the entirety of Southern Maryland, including eventual church plants throughout southern St. Mary’s County as well as southern Calvert County.  Want to know more about our Fall 2021 church plant, Relevant? Just Click here.
