FOUNDERS & LEAD PASTORS
LEO & NORMA DAVIS
Pastors Leo & Norma Davis are the Founders & Lead Pastors of the life-giving church plant, Love Alive Church and they 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 35 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.
In January of 2014, Pastors Leo & Norma began to experience a stirring in their hearts as God revealed He was calling them to new territory. As they sought God, they began to see that He was calling them to pursue the God sized vision of planting a life-giving church in Orange Park, Florida.
They prayed fervently about what God had placed in their hearts to do and in May 2014, they began meeting with their pastors, Bishop George & Pastor April Davis, to share this new development with them. After much prayer, their pastors gave their blessing to obey God in planting a church.
Not wanting to do ministry alone Pastors Leo & Norma 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, they were honored to receive the news that ARC wanted to help launch Love Alive Church as an ARC church. On Sunday, February 19, 2017, the dream was birthed and they opened the doors to Love Alive Church in Orange Park, Florida and consistently stand amazed at the wonderful work that God is doing in Orange Park, Florida.
With more than 31 years of marriage and four children (Jamal (deceased), Bridgett, Joshua & Jonathan), 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 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.
