About the Founders
Dave and Dee Alei have been in full
time Christian ministry since 1989. They attended Fountain Gate Bible
College in Plano, TX for five years prior to that, and both hold
ordinations through Shekinah Ministries in Blountville, TN. They
planted and pastored their first church, Living Water Community
Church, in Los Alamos, NM from 1990-1995.
They then ministered for two years in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, to Church leaders and others in the Body of Christ in association with Proclaiming His Word Ministries and Christian International Ministries.
In December 1996, the Lord led them to
move to the northeast of England to establish a beachhead for ministry
in the region. There, they planted Lifeline Christian Fellowship in
Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, and founded the Northeast Regional Ministry
Training Centre, which served churches in the region. They also
ministered through various seminars and retreats around the north of
England and in Northern Ireland.
They remained in England until December
of 2002, and after a sabbatical season, moved to Guaymas, Sonora in
August of 2005 to establish a base of ministry in Mexico. During their
tenure there they were used by the Lord in pastoring, worship leading,
prophetic ministry, youth work, equipping seminars and prophetic prayer
counseling. They also established a youth center and worked with the
young people of Guaymas, which had the highest per capita teen suicide
rate in all of Mexico for cities with populations under 150,000. Their
vision has always been to give value, hope, training, and encouragament
to young people, and these precious young lives were a joy to serve.
They also worked closely with the pastors in the city to foster
unity and bring vision for real transformation.
In February of 2012, the Lord led them
to return to northern New Mexico with the promise that He was taking
them "full circle". Dave and Dee returned to northern New Mexico with a renewed vision for revival, healing, breakthrough, and equipping, but this time with an international and kingdom perspective that they lacked in their early pioneering years. After much prayer and seeking God, Rev!veLA, a weekly time of prophetic worship and intercession for the region, was begun in December 2012. The northern New Mexico Revival Center was established in early 2014, and space rented for the ministry later that year in the Los Alamos satellite community of White Rock.
