Our annual DEEP FAITH week will take place from February 12–14, 2018. Through special morning and evening chapel gatherings, we will ask God to examine our hearts and transform our minds—with the hope that our love for God and one another would be revived. Bishop Claude Alexander is the Senior Pastor of The Park Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. He will be with us to open God’s Word, lead us in prayer and direct us towards a renewal of loving God with all of our hearts, souls, strength and minds.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Morning Worship: Monday and Wednesday, 10:25 a.m., A. J. Gordon Memorial Chapel
Evening Worship: Monday and Tuesday, 9 p.m., A. J. Gordon Memorial Chapel
For over 36 years, Claude Alexander has sought to serve God and community. Having accepted the call to ministry at the age of 17, he endeavored to prepare himself by obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from Morehouse College (1985), a Master of Divinity Degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (1988), and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (2004). Bishop Alexander has served as the Senior Pastor of The Park Church in Charlotte, North Carolina for the past 27 years. Under his leadership, The Park Church has grown from one local congregation of 600 members to a global ministry of thousands with three locations and weekly international reach.
A leader among both Christian and civic organizations, Bishop Alexander has worked with government and community officials to address the community’s most critical issues. Currently, he serves on the boards of Charlotte Center City Partners, Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, Christianity Today, Mission America Coalition, and the Joint College of African-American Pentecostal Bishops. He is the Vice Chairman of Gordon-Conwell Board of Trustees and the Second-Presiding Bishop of the Kingdom Association of Covenant Pastors.
In 2013, Bishop Alexander extended his many roles to include that of author. He published his first book, Necessary Christianity, through which he examines the ‘must’ statements of and about Jesus Christ within the Gospels. Written during a three-month sabbatical, he strives to challenge notions of personal preference and entitlement in our lives with Christ.
