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 be a worship driven, life-improving faith community.
Our Pastors have a passion to reach people through the life changing message of the Gospel.
They have given their lives to the mission of the local church and have a vision to see all people know God, find freedom, discover their purpose and make a difference.
