Coachella Valley Church reviews
We made a visit to the Coachella Valley Church. It has been recognized as the first federally recognized Rostafarian Church in the United States. It is a pleasant two story building on Alamade. By.... more »
Didn't really know where to visit while in San Jose for a business trip. My first stop was the Winchester Mystery house and Valley Fair, but kind of stuck after that. Thank God for Coachella Valley... more »
My name is Kevin. I have been scammed by Dryden Brite also called (Zac Puckett) which is the Coachella Valley Church member. He owes me $350 for a grille he bought for his G-Wagon. He refuses to pay for the merchandise. We trust him as a good faith, but he scammed me. He is a fraud person. Please ask him to pay his bill. He uses Coachella Valley Church name to place online orders to confuse sellers. This is a shame for him and the church name he uses to online orders. I am planning to travel to San Jose to take a legal action if I have to. Someone has to stop him from using church name to scam people. Thank you Kevin A.
This church is really something special. Even if you are not a Christian, the experience here will leave you feeling good. As soon as you enter, the ushers greet you and make you feel welcome with their friendly faces and gracious demeanor. But don't worry, nobody is pushing religion on anyone here, so you can just "visit" and enjoy the service. Let me tell you, the choir is awesome! If you are Christian, it is spiritual, but even if you are not, it is just great music and singing and will make you feel good to hear them as they sing with smiles on their faces! The sermon and other parts of the service were nice too, but the choir really is the whole "show" for me. When the choir is singing, many people were dancing, singing along, clapping, and just basking in the music! What an awesome experience to be part of that. And the show is free, and they do this every Sunday!!! Definitely worth a visit for Christians and non-Christians alike! You will walk out of there with peace and joy in your soul!
