The Maxwell Family

In early 2002, God asked Troy and Penny Maxwell to do something crazy: He asked them to leave all they knew in Richmond, Virginia, and start a church in a city they'd never even visited. From the moment they arrived in Charlotte, the Maxwells (and a small band of merry helpers) hit the ground running! Freedom House's doors opened in September 2002, and since then has become a fixture in North Charlotte. The Maxwells are excited about all God's doing in our wonderful city, and they're excited to keep doing God's excellent work in Charlotte and around the world.

Troy and Penny have been married since 1992. They're committed to each other and their three children: son Colby, and daughters Cabell and Cassidy. Their passion is to see you live up to God's fullest potential in you, and they're committed to encouraging vision and purpose in every person they meet.

The Maxwells are mentored and covered by Dennis and Colleen Rouse (senior pastors), and Pastor Darrell Mims (executive pastor of finance and administration) of Victory World Church in Atlanta, GA; and Pastor Steve Kelly (senior pastor) of Wave Church in Virginia Beach, VA.
