SENIOR PASTOR RANDY CLARKE AND ALICIA
I began my ministry as Lead Pastor at Palms West Alliance in May, 2008.My wife, Alicia, & I are former Alliance missionaries to Uruguay, South America, where we spent several years involved in various church planting and teaching ministries.I’m originallyfrom Kansas City, MO and met Alicia at Washington UniversitySt. Louis. Alicia was born in New York City and grew up in Plainview, Long Island in a Jewish home.
After several years of marriage the Lord savedus through the ministry of Jews for Jesus, and we soon felt a call into full-time Christian service. We both attended Alliance Theological Seminary in New York, andI graduated with an MDIV.We moved with our three children to Grand Junction, CO where for 11 years we planted the River of Life Alliance Church, a thriving ministry in western Colorado.
The Lord then moved us into missionary service where we spent one year in Costa Rica to learn Spanish, and then 3½ years serving in Uruguay. After returning to the US for home assignment, Alicia obtained a Master of Counseling degree from Denver Seminary. Alicia is a fully licensed registered mental health therapist (LMHC) in the state of Florida. She has a private counseling practice(www.palmswestcounseling.com) with an office located in the Church Administration Building. She also serves as the Executive Administrator of the South Florida Association of Christian Counselors (www.sfacconline.org), an organization that helps pastors, Christians, and mental health professionals find professional Christian counselors with expertise in a variety of areas: marital counseling, family counseling, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, post-abortion, etc.)
ASST PASTOR CARL JOSEPH AND ROSE-MAI
My wife Rose-mai & I ministered for 17 years in our native Haiti before moving to Wellington, Florida.I am a graduate of Moody Bible Institute and Huntington University. I am a composer/producer and have recorded over 3000 Christian songs in three different languages. We run the Alabanza Ministries which uses music, television and movie production to share the Gospel of Christ to Haitians dispersed over four continents.
At Palms West Alliance we believe in Spirit-led and Spirit filled worship. It’s not about us, but about our Lord and Savior jesus Christ. We look forward to that great worship described in Revelations, so we are practicing here!
God is looking for those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth: TRUE WORSHIPPERS.
Come, sing and praise with us at Palms West Alliance. Let’s get excited about worship!
YOUTH LEADER LELAND HERRING AND MELISSA
Leland’s upbringing in Haiti and Miami instilled a love for diversity as he speaks English, Spanish, and Creole. He and his wife Melissa have lived in Royal Palm Beach for over 17 years. They love raising their children, William (age 13) and Tyneisha (age 10) in the western communities. Leland has been on staff with Palm Beach County Youth for Christ for 12 years. He directs various programs with the intent of sharing Jesus & raising Godly students. Although, it may sound simple, Leland’s passion for modeling The Good News to students is, “This life is temporary… The next one is Forever… A personal relationship with Christ is Everything!” Romans 5:8 is one of his favorite verses when sharing The Good News!
OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR DENISE HOPKINS
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, where I met my husband, Michael. Shortly after we had our daughter, we moved to the lovely island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We worked there for a few years then moved to South Florida in 2001. God led us to Palms West Alliance Church where we were embraced by the love and compassion that is our church’s heritage.
My hobbies include reading, cycling, jogging and beach outings. My passion is coaching others to achieve their goals and dreams while sharing the love of God.
Let me know how I can help you!
