Temidayo Akinsanya

Lead Pastor

I have the pleasure of leading the adventure to see Jesus change lives through Restoration church. My wife and I have been blessed to call Laurel home of over 10 years. 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 employed as a Data Scientist. I enjoy reading, walking, and playing some good board games.

Kwame Asante

Music Team Leader

I have the pleasure of leading the music team at Restoration church. I was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland and have been doing music in church for as long as I can remember. From the children’s choir, to the praise and worship team at his University of Virginia campus ministry, to the local church’s praise team, I have always gravitated toward service through song. I have led musical worship in a variety of cultural contexts and have grown to appreciate the many ways one can lift up praise to the Lord. I currently work as a software engineer and live in Laurel, Maryland. In my free time, I enjoy trying new foods and watching indie movies.
