FOR NEARLY TWO hours, the arena-sized church on Primrose Avenue in Northwest Baltimore rocked with rhythmic fury. Its crowd of more than 2,000 danced, sang and clapped in cadence. Its charismatic young pastor and founder bellowed a powerful message that often brought the crowd to its feet. Then it was time for the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant to wrap up his sermon and extend invitation to Empowerment Temple African Methodist Episcopal, the megachurch he founded six years ago with 43 members that has grown to more than 10,000.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Love Fellowship Tabernacle Church is rocking. Nearly 400 people -- most of them under the age of 30 -- are being whipped into a singing, stomping, praying revival by the church's pastor, Hezekiah Walker, and his Grammy award-winning gospel choir. No one is holding back. They clap hands, hug the people next to them, reassure each other again and again that "Everything is going to be all right."Outside, the wail of police sirens shatters the stillness of a battered urban neighborhood.

When I arrived in Baltimore last year, one of the first things I did was to look for a church home. Finding the right place of worship is key to one's spiritual growth and, frankly, it's the only way I make it from day-to-day. I still haven't found a home yet, so I'm still visiting. But along my search, I discovered a very interesting minister who apparently has caught the attention of thousands here locally and many more nationally. I first saw the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant of Empowerment Temple on a Sunday broadcast on TV One. I didn't catch the entire service but Bryant was at a high point in his sermon.

Celestine Whitley couldn't believe what she was seeing: Her fellow parishioners at Baltimore's New Psalmist Baptist Church kept heading to the altar to lay money down each time the guest speaker hammered home a point during his sermon. Whitley had recently seen such offerings performed on broadcasts of televangelist Bishop Eddie Long. But the practice -- known as seed offering -- left her confused. Was it Bible-based? Were the givers sincere or just showing off? Moreover, where was the money going?
