More than Music

Besides music all day, you can hear from impactful speakers, hilarious comedians, kids performers, and others throughout the three days at Alive. There will also be seminars for students, a chance to hear from artists in a Q&A, and more. Stay tuned as we continue to update this page with our special guests who will be appearing at Alive 2020.

Darren Whitehead 

In 2013 with a small team, Darren and Brandy Whitehead founded Church of the City. They had the vision to plant a family of churches that live in the way of Jesus for the renewal of global cities. Every weekend more than 6000 people attend one of five church congregations across Nashville and New York City.

Originally from Australia, Darren has lived in the United States for 20 years. He holds both Masters and Doctorate degrees in Ministry, with his dissertation focus on Millennials and the future of the Western church. He recently released his second book, Holy Roar: 7 Words That Will Change The Way You Worship, co-authored with worship leader Chris Tomlin.

Darren lives with his wife, Brandy, and their three daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.
