Pastor Al Brice, our senior pastor, and his wife Tava, have both witnessed and been a part of many moves of God for over three decades. They have been active in encouraging and helping pastors around the U.S. and abroad, as well as speaking in leadership meetings, worship seminars, men's events and conferences. Pastor Al is a native of Tabor City, North Carolina and was in ministry in Dallas, Texas with Tava when God called them to Fayetteville.
Covenant Love Church was founded in 1991 and is a non-denominational church based on God's love, His Word, and His compassion. Pastor Al and Tava held Bible studies at the home of Ernest and Myra Wood and subsequently began services in a small storage room with thirty three people in attendance. In 1992, the church moved to Pamalee Shopping Center and finally to Dunn Road in 1995 with 350 members. After tremendous growth, CLC built a new 2,000 seat sanctuary in 2006 at the Dunn Road location.
CLC continues to grow in God's love and maturity. In these last days, God is seeking true, worshiping churches, and Pastor Al and Tava believe this all begins with a true, worshiping Senior Pastor, staff, and congregation. With a sincere heart after God, CLC will continue to grow, serve, and make a lasting impact for the Kingdom of God.
