Alex Weeks

First Church

My name is Alex Weeks, and I am the Associate Student Ministries pastor at First Church in St. Joseph, MI. I am originally part of the Intern Academy Class of 2010, and graduated from Mid-America Christian University with a degree in Christian Ministries & Behavioral Sciences in 2012. I met my husband Caleb while we were in college, and we got married after I graduated. He and I served in ministry together for four years, and he is now the best volunteer and cheerleader I could ask for. We love doughnut dates, Netflix and sometimes our dog, Tucker.

I felt God calling me into ministry when I was 17, and because of some great people and mentors in my life, I have had such a meaningful journey to get where I am today. I get excited when I think about teenagers discovering their faith, passions and talents, and using those to impact the people in their circle. God has been so faithful, and I am excited to be a part of what He’s doing at our church and in our movement right now!
