Pastor Ken & Pastor Tabatha

Lead Pastors

Pastor Ken & Tabatha moved to Gainesville from Washington, DC to begin ministry in 2007. Not knowing anyone in the city, they packed up their family and left their friends and loved ones for what has turned out to be a journey of a lifetime! After 7 years of ministry (miraculous healings, powerful prayers and life changing relationships), Alive Church was born.


God birthed a vision in Pastor Ken’s heart, to pioneer a move of God that would bring life into dead places. This vision would bring people together regardless of race, ethnicity, or economic status. It would cross racial lines, challenge our boundaries in Christ, and commission us to go after those who are far from God. Now, every Sunday, through passionate worship, powerful messages, and loving community hundreds of people are reached and lives are being changed weekly!
