Glenn & Laura Lee
LEAD + FOUNDING PASTORS
Church Alive began as a dream! Pastor Glenn Lee responded to a special prompting from God in 1992, while attending Southeastern College in Lakeland, Florida, to plant a new church.
In the fall of 1999, Glenn and Laura felt a nudge from God that it was time to seek out the place where they would create a worship driven, life-improving faith community. After visiting three different cities, they sensed that God was granting them the opportunity to plant a new church in the Raleigh/Durham metro area.
Between the fall of 1999 and the fall of 2000, Glenn and Laura began to recruit a team of leaders that would be willing to move to Raleigh to help plant Church Alive. Between August and October 2000, the eleven team members relocated to Raleigh to be a part of this dream.
On September 9, 2001, Church Alive had its official Grand Opening with 260 people in attendance and has grown to approximately 1,300 worshippers. The second campus of Church Alive, located at Harnett Middle School, hosts approximately 250 worshippers each Sunday.
There is much excitement and great expectation to see where God is taking Church Alive in the days ahead!
