Dr. Alec Rowlands is the senior pastor of Westgate Chapel in Edmonds, Washington. Westgate is a marvelously alive and missional, non-denominational and multi-ethnic congregation that moves in the gifts of the Spirit in gracious and fruitful ways. Alec and his wife, Rita, have two daughters who are both on staff at Westgate along with their spouses, so ministry for the Rowlands is truly a family affair. His book, The Presence, beautifully strikes the balance between the heart of Wesleyan theology and the life of Pentecostal worship. His deep reflection on revival cultures makes this a conversation you should not miss.
