CHRIST ALIVE WORSHIP CENTER
A “start-up” Pentecostal church in the city of Lake Havasu City, AZ.
2644 N. Kiowa Blvd.
Rev. Gerald R. Buxton, Pastor
A couple of years ago now, after a life-changing experience with God, Michael Buxton invited friends and family to join with him in a series of weekly Bible studies taught by his brother Andrew of the San Diego area. From the beginning it was evident that God’s approval was on this endeavor. Several people were baptized and were filled with the Holy Ghost. Pictures of these baptisms are shown on the Blogspot site.
Because of increasing family responsibilities, and those of the church he pastors in La Mesa, Andrew was not able to continue the commute to Lake Havasu. Consequently, the weekly Bible studies faltered.
In the meantime, Pastor Gerald Buxton, who had retired from pastoring in 1996, but who was still actively involved in ministry, felt a burden to come here to Lake Havasu to resume the Bible studies and to lead the work to the next level, that of a bona-fide church. In early February of 2007, he and his wife, Shirley, loaded in their clothes and other necessities and moved their motor home to DJs RV Park. February 11, 2007 was the date of the first Sunday service.
It has been forward and upward from there. Lake Havasu is a thriving, growing city, now exceeding 50,000 people, and of a certainty, Christ Alive Worship Center is needed here.
