In this day and age, young people seem to be slipping away from the church in alarming numbers,
leaving pastors to wonder how to not only attract, but retain millennials—a fancy term for those in
the under-35 group.
But Pastor Alvin Love and his 10-time Grammy-winning recording artist wife, CeCe Winans, are
having no trouble drawing and keeping younger folks at their Nashville, Tennessee-based ministry.
So then, what in the world is these co-pastors’ secret?
“We can’t take the credit for that. It started that way (with) my son’s and my daughter’s friends,” said
Winans, 50, in a new interview with Religion News Service, where she discussed how Nashville Life
Church was launched in their home in 2012, with their two children Alvin Love III and Ashley Rose.
“At that time, five years ago, they were probably all the ages of 25 and under. It’s just like we have
an expanded family now. We give all glory to God. He’s given us the ability to relate and I think it’s
because we have our children in ministry with us,” said the “Let Them Fall In Love” singer, who is
currently touring nationally and promoting her chart-topping album of the same name, produced by
her son Alvin.
