Ken Claytor is the lead pastor of Alive Church in Gainesville and Orlando, FL. In 2007 Pastors Ken and Tabatha Claytor felt the call of God to move to Gainesville from Washington DC to plant a church. Not knowing anyone in the city, they packed up their family, left friends and loved ones for what has turned out to be the journey of a lifetime!
Starting with 5 people in their living room they grew to meeting weekly at the Phillips Performing Arts Center located in the University of Florida’s campus. A few years later God began to birth a new vision in Pastor Ken’s heart, one that would pioneer a move of God to bring life into dead places. This vision would bring people together regardless of race, ethnicity, or economic status. It would cross racial lines, challenge boundaries in Christ, and commission the church to go after those who are far from God.
