Founders & Lead Pastors
Pastors Leo & Norma Davis are the Founders & Lead Pastors of the life-giving church plant, Love Alive Church.
Pastors Leo & Norma have a deep desire to help others experience a real relationship with Jesus so that they may know that he loves them and has a unique call and purpose for their lives.
With more than 30 years of ministry experience, they are honored to serve God as servant leaders to an amazing group of people who have partnered with Love Alive Church to share the Amazing Love of God with all.
Our story is simple. We are passionately in love with Jesus and His love has caused us to be radical in our love for His people. Our goal is to lead people so that they have an opportunity to experience this same love.
In January of 2014, we began to experience a stirring in our hearts as God revealed to us that we were being called into new territory. As we sought the heart of the Father, we began to see that He was calling us to pursue the God sized vision of planting a life-giving church in Orange Park, Florida.
We prayed fervently about what God had placed in our hearts and in May 2014, we began meeting with our pastors, Bishop George & Pastor April Davis, to share this new development with them. After much prayer, our pastors gave us their blessing to obey God in planting a church.
Not wanting to do ministry alone we immediately started a process to connect with the Association of Related Churches (ARC), a church planting organization with a passion to connect with couples and resource them to launch the church God has placed in their hearts to be strong and successful. On April 6, 2016, we were honored to receive the news that ARC wanted to help us launch Love Alive Church as an ARC church.
In June 2016, we began having Interest Meetings to invite family, friends and the community to assist us in launching this new life giving church of which 58 of them determined they would help us to obey the great call from God. On Opening Day, Sunday, February 19, 2017, we opened the doors to Love Alive Church and 301 persons came to see the amazing work that God is doing in Orange Park, Florida.
Our hearts desire is to serve people through the vehicle of Love Alive Church and to offer them a real and powerful experience with God’s Amazing Love. We realize now more than ever that this is quite an amazing adventure of faith and that walking by faith is not always easy, but we are confident that we are doing exactly what God has called us to do. We are also excited to be Co-Pastoring as best friends and married partners of more than 30 years. We are confident that this church will reach many with the love of Jesus Christ and we are so glad that you are here…
