MEET OUR PASTORS
Darrell and Donnia Alexander
We have been set as the leaders of this house to set an atmosphere that will cause those who are in it to encounter Jesus in a whole new way!
Knowing Him without guilt or condemnation but knowing him through His great Love and His free grace to bring the abundant life Jesus has said is ours to live.
We provide a place where the gifts and anointing of Jesus can be experienced by all of us and to experience Jesus in a whole new way! Grace Life Family Church has a supernatural design direct from the master to not be church as usual but to have the super put in our natural.
NEVER EXPECT THE SAME ORDINARY WAY,
ALWAYS EXPECT THE SUPERNATURAL OUT OF THE ORDINARY WAY !

Donnia grew up in a pastor’s home and is no stranger to what life is like being married to a pastor. She was often asked if she liked living on the mission field and with a smile she always answered, “I love it, because it’s where the Lord has us at this time in our lives and ministry, and it is the perfect place, and now the Lord has sent us back to Florida to pastor and this is the perfect place because this is the place the Lord has sent us."
