Our History

Our church was started by McGregor Baptist Church in the late 1970’s as Cypress Lake Baptist Church. Dr. Danny Harvey served as church planter and pastor for around 35 years. Through his time here, the church was able to purchase the 10 acres of land we are located on, as well as build our two main buildings (the education building—which we currently meet in—and the sanctuary). In 2009 he retired and the church called Rev. Randy Alston to be the next pastor in September 2010. In September 2014 we “recommissioned” as Redeemer Church. This meant we were basically a relaunched church. We changed our name, by-laws, worship location, and came to embrace meaningful membership. We now have two elders, Randy Alston and Sam Killman, and are seeking to be a faithful, healthy church in Southwest Florida.
