About Leaders Alive International
Leaders Alive International was birthed in January of 2007 when our President, Lael Barkman was preaching a series of revival meetings in North Carolina and the Lord pressed a weighty vision heavily on his heart. The vision he saw was the need for a convocation of God’s leaders that are passionate about the things of God, leaders that know and understand that nothing of eternal value can be accomplished outside the moving of the Holy Spirit and His voice. Pastor Lael brought that vision back and shared it with the leadership team of Sunrise Chapel, and with united effort they set forth to host the first Leaders Alive Leadership Conference later that spring. Then a couple years later, immediately following the 2009 annual conference, a board was elected and Leaders Alive International was registered as an official 501(c)3 organization, completely separate from Sunrise Chapel Church.
Leaders Alive exists for individuals to come together to share heart cries and passions, learn together, and pray together that God will move again in individual lives and churches in these last days by the latter rain that He promised He will send to those that will hear His voice and walk in His ways. We believe that every individual - from young to old - is a leader and has influence on those around them and our passion is to equip them to walk in it.
LAI believes that the Holy Ghost rain is falling in early rain drops and that He will fall in abundance of rain again in these last days upon and through those who believe and receive! We believe that individuals who desire true holiness will come together, and denominations will become increasingly less important and more extinct when HIS GLORY is evident.
If you are called and chosen as a leader of God’s great people - and to every true believer; we all have the answer of life in our hands. We have the precious Word of God and the Holy Spirit to work as we humble ourselves and yield to His lordship. Will you be a part of it and the latter rain?
