Last week our Family Ministry welcomed a new team member, Alex Padgett!!!! Who is Alex and why should you be as excited as we are? Alex is passionate about Family Ministry! She has been involved in Children’s and Youth Ministry for the last five years both here at FBCJAX and also at her previous church in Morehead City. She loves to see children begin to understand what it means to have a relationship with Christ and pursue a walk with Him. Alex is passionate about getting both adults and students to step into serving the next generation. She loves seeing people flourish in the gifts that the Lord has given them.
She was born and raised in Carteret County, NC and played various sports all throughout her life. She attended North Carolina State University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Grades Math Education. Early in her college years she started developing an enormous love for Children’s Ministry. During this time, God gave her the opportunity to run the Children’s Ministry at the church she attended for two consecutive summers. Those summers only heightened her love for guiding children in their spiritual development and gave her a deeper longing to live out the passion that God placed on her heart.
Alex and her husband, Andrew, were married in August of 2015. Throughout their relationship they have seen God do “the immeasurably more”, time and time again. Andrew has served as the Student Director at FBCJAX for two years now, and Alex is excited to have the opportunity to serve the families of FBCJAX alongside of him.
We are thrilled to have Alex on our Family Ministry Team. We are looking forward to watching how God uses her gifts and passions to partner with families to make disciples of the next generation. Do me a favor; take a moment and shoot her an email (Alex@fbcjax.net) to welcome her to the team or stop by FirstKids Elementary on the weekends to show your support.
