OUR PASTORS

Pastor John Sanborn is the founding pastor of Faith Alive Christian Fellowship in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Along with his wife Deborah of 19 years, they pastor a Word of Faith Church, teaching the uncompromising Word of God to a growing congregation. Faith Alive began as a home ministry in 2006. In October of 2009 Faith Alive began meeting at the High School in Laconia and opened the doors to the Lakes Region.

Two of the greatest emphases at Faith Alive are the importance of the written Word and the necessity of being led by the Spirit. Their heart is to see the lost saved, the sick healed, broken hearts restored and the discouraged empowered to victory. Their vision is to teach the uncompromising Word of God to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and beyond.

Over the years Pastors John and Deb have worked in the local church as youth and young adult leaders before being called to full time ministry. In 1995 The Lord spoke to Pastor John at a Creation Music Festival in Pennsylvania and told him he was called to teach. At that time this did not seem at all possible to Pastor John but he knew it was God speaking to him. He is now walking in the fullness of the vision God had for him.

Pastors John and Deb have 5 adult children and 9 grandchildren. Growing up in Laconia in a Christian home, Pastor John understands the importance of raising a family through Christian values and enjoys teaching others those values as well.

They both have a love for God’s Word and a desire for the Body of Christ to rise to their greatest potential through practical application of God’s Word in their everyday lives. His teachings bring a clear, simple understanding of biblical truths with an emphasis on walking in victory and knowing what your Kingdom rights and benefits are to help you succeed in every area of life.

I’m New Here

My First Visit?

Our services begin at 10:00 am and last for approximately one and a half hours. Every Sunday we worship for 30 – 40 minutes with a live band in a fun, energetic and sometimes intimate atmosphere. There is freedom here and you may see people with their hands raised worshiping (Psalm 132:2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the LORD). The service is always Spirit led as our Pastor follows the leading of the Holy Spirit. There is dynamic and practical teaching of the Word that you can clearly understand and apply in your day-to-day life. The gifts of the Spirit are in operation each Sunday. Each week is a new experience with our God as He leads and directs us and knows what each one of us needs each time we gather! After service we have refreshments if you would like to stay. 

What Should I Wear?

We want you to be comfortable when you visit, so wear what you’re comfortable wearing. When you’re at one of our services, you’ll see a range of styles from jeans to suits. Casual or “Sunday best” . . . it doesn’t matter. Come as you are!

 

 

 

Where Do My Kids Go?

Children ages 6 months through kindergarten should be brought to our secure classrooms located to the left of the entrance before church starts. You are welcome to peak in our windows outside the classes at anytime to check on your child. If your child is shy at first, no worries – we love children and you can always come to service until they are comfortable. Baby’s under 6 months are welcome in service but we do offer a moms rooms to the left of our sanctuary which offers a private two way window and speakers so you can enjoy the service. There is a rocking chair, a baby swing and a changing table with supplies. Our 1st grade – 5th grade children’s ministries are dismissed after our worship service. 6th grade and older will remain in service.
