Bishop Jimmy & Pastor Karen have been married for 24 years and have been in ministry for over 25 years. They have three children: Nathan, Caleb, and Kathryn. Pastors Jimmy and Karen have served God faithfully in nearly every facet of church life and are now teaching their kids to do so.
In 2017, God gave Pastor Jimmy a strategic dream to plant a new church in the Conroe/Willis/New Waverly area. He dreamed of planting a life-giving church that infuses hope into families and equips people to follow God in their everyday life. This dream was strategic because he would soon find out that this community is the fastest growing area IN THE NATION! What a place to tell as many people about Jesus as possible! He committed this dream to much prayer and fasting, then began to make plans and build a team.
In February of 2018, a strong Launch Team of about 60 people, led by Pastors Jimmy and Karen, began to put together the life-giving, hope filled church that Alive is today! We are just getting started and the best is yet to come.
Pastor Jimmy and the entire Alive Church Team are committed to building men and raising up sons. We believe that Christlikeness and manhood are synonymous, and that being male is a matter of birth, but being a man is matter of choice. Pastor Jimmy believes that fatherlessness is one of the greatest plagues of our land, and training up men to guide, guard, and govern their homes with maturity is the answer.
Pastors Jimmy and Karen lead Alive Church well under the guidance and care of Bishops Jimmy and Jackie Davidson. Our Bishops provide a safeguard in ministry through their 40+ years of experience! They help give wonderful insight and direction. We are thankful for them!
Alive Church officially launched inside The Grand 14 Theatre in north Conroe on September 23, 2018. The response was incredible that day with TWO packed services and 45 salvations!
In March of 2019, Alive moved into its new, larger location on 45 – just 5 months after Launch Day! We welcome you and your family to join one of our services at 2758 West Feeder IH 45, New Waverly, TX 77358. The building was formerly Annette’s Touch of Class, an iconic business in New Waverly. We believe that God is setting Alive as a beacon of hope and life in our region.
We give God all the glory as He is moving in the surrounding communities. We’re thankful to be a part of it. It’s good to be Alive!
