About the Founders

Dave and Dee Alei founders of Lifeline Minstries Spirit filled Bible teaching ministry

Dave and Dee Alei have been in full time Christian ministry since 1989. They attended Fountain Gate Bible College in Plano, TX for five years prior to that, and both hold ordinations through Shekinah Ministries in Blountville, TN. They planted and pastored their first church, Living Water Community Church, in Los Alamos, NM from 1990-1995.

They then ministered for two years in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, to Church leaders and others in the Body of Christ in association with Proclaiming His Word Ministries and Christian International Ministries.

In December 1996, the Lord led them to move to the northeast of England to establish a beachhead for ministry in the region. There, they planted Lifeline Christian Fellowship in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, and founded the Northeast Regional Ministry Training Centre, which served churches in the region. They also ministered through various seminars and retreats around the north of England and in Northern Ireland.

They remained in England until December of 2002, and after a sabbatical season, moved to Guaymas, Sonora in August of 2005 to establish a base of ministry in Mexico. During their tenure there they were used by the Lord in pastoring, worship leading, prophetic ministry, youth work, equipping seminars and prophetic prayer counseling. They also established a youth center and worked with the young people of Guaymas, which has the highest per capita teen suicide rate in all of Mexico for cities with populations under 150,000. Their vision has always been to give value, hope, training, and encouragament to young people, and these precious young lives were a joy to serve. They are also worked closely with the pastors in the city to foster unity and bring vision for real transformation.

In February of 2011, the Lord led them to return to northern New Mexico with the promise that He was taking them "Full Circle". Since that time, Dave and Dee have been reestablishing relationships that began in the early to mid 1990's and have returned to the place of their first work with a renewed vision for revival, breakthrough, and equipping, but this time, they have an international and kingdom perspective that they lacked in their early pioneering years. They are currently hosting a weekly meeting called Rev!veLA with the objective of opening the heavens over northern New Mexico through sustained worship and prophetic intercession.

Board of Directors

Wendell & Dee Seitz

Wendell and Dee Seitz have been friends since 1992, and currently live in the Texas panhandle. They are dedicated Christians, actively involved in prison ministry, evangelism, and Bible teaching in their local community. They have made several missions trips to Mexico, and we can always count on them for sound advice, prayer support, and the wisdom that comes with years of experience.

They have also provided much practical support through the years. Their generosity and sensitivity to the needs of the ministry have been a tremendous blessing to us and to the people with whom we come in contact. Many hearts have been touched by their love and compassion.

Brent & Nancy Talley

We first met Brent and Nancy Talley over twenty years ago. They have always had a heart for young people, and were the youth leaders in the first church we pastored in New Mexico. In more recent years, they founded two different youth-oriented ministries, Thunder Ranch and 180 Inc., and we have seen them make tremendous personal sacrifice to impart the love of Jesus into the lives of young people.

Brent is the driving force behind 180 Inc., a ministry designed to turn around the lives of at-risk young men by teaching them building trades. Nancy is currently associate pastor of Grace Vineyard Fellowship in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

Stateside Office

Bryan & Alexis Stegall

Bryan and Alexis Stegall oversee the stateside office for Lifeline Ministries. Our relationship with Bryan goes back more than 30 years - he and Dave fought fires together before Dave even met Dee! How wonderful it is that the Lord saved all of us, restored and renewed our friendships after losing touch with each other for over 20 years. We're so grateful that He also brought Alexis into our lives and has joined us together as co-workers for His Kingdom! We so appreciate all that Bryan and Alexis are doing to keep us from having to worry about handling our funds!

This couple takes care of the U.S. office of Lifeline Ministries, including all our banking and reporting needs. If we are out of the country and you need to call, Bryan will likely be the one to answer our phone. Alexis keeps us informed of contributions, makes bank deposits, updates our giving records, deals with misdirected mail, and handles our database needs. Bryan and Alexis have beautiful servant hearts and we count it such a blessing to have them as a part of Lifeline Ministries!
