A local Tampa Bay church is close to bringing home one of the many coveted awards given by the "2014 Ford Neighborhood Awards."

Love First Christian Center was nominated as one of the top churches in the country by the Steve Harvey Morning Show. While LFCC is the only church in the deep south up for the honor of Best Church, there are two other Bay Area nominees in other categories; D & S Hand Carwash and Detail (Best Carwash/Detail Shop category) and Mt. Zion Progressive Missionary Baptist Church (Best Church Choir category).

Love First Christian Center is led by Senior Pastor Dr. Jomo Cousins and his wife Pastor Dr. Charmaine Cousins. Located in the Riverview area, the growing church is just over five years old. Pastor Jomo Cousins proudly proclaims his ministry as one that gives and loves. "Love God, love people, love life and love first," says Pastor Jomo. The church participates in a wide range of continuous outreach including feeding the less fortunate, shoes and clothes drives and an annual scholarship.

"Neighborhood Awards" formerly known as "The Hoodies" is an award show that recognizes unsung individuals and businesses who exemplify excellence in their communities. The 12th annual show will be held in Atlanta, moved from Las Vegas where it has been held in past years.

Voting in this category will be taking place today June 16 until 6 PM. Looking to cast a vote? Visit the "Neighborhood Awards" here.
