Default Looking for former LC members in Boston/Cambridge area

Hi all,

I'm moving to Cambridge, Massachusetts this fall to attend grad school.

While I still might go to the LC church in Cambridge or Boston, I'm open to exploring other churches. What churches do you recommend?

I'm hoping to find something that appeals to LC sensibilities but leaves the exclusivism at the door and integrates with the broader Christian community. The sensibilities that I mention include the intention to live out the Acts style of fellowship, super close-knit family feel, praising out loud during meetings, potlucks (half-kidding) and an emphasis on "experiencing Christ" on a deep level that you find in the writings of Watchman Nee, AW Tozer and even Witness Lee. I do also appreciate the themes you find in broader evangelical Christianity like missions work and vocation. I recognize that it's probably impossible to find a church that has all those elements...you can't have everything!

I'm especially interested in churches that are influenced by Watchman Nee / AW Tozer, similar to those started by Titus Chu or Stephen Kaung, independenet local churches started by former members of LC, churches with a population of former LC members, or "New Community Churches" (e.g. Cincinnati Community Church, Grandview Christian Assembly) described by Brother John Myer in "A Future and a Hope".
