Alex’s Bio:

My commitment to my Lord and this congregation is deep, spanning more than forty years.  I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ on February 4, 1970, the same evening I met Frank Majewski.  I was ready at nineteen to turn from a life of sin and recklessness to follow Him.  I attended the evangelistic meetings led by Frank and the evening Scripture studies offered to help us learn Scripture.  I wanted to grow, be with other Christians and share my faith.  This shared desire led Frank and several of us to Bethesda Temple where Pastor Beall began teaching us.  I received my Bible training there and sang with the choir.  I became the pastor of our church, The Fisherman’s Net, in 1975 after we began a Sunday service.  I was ordained through the Assemblies of God International Fellowship.

 

In 1972 I met a young woman, Sue, who later became my wife.  Susie and I were married in 1975 while she was a nursing student.  We raised three sons and shared a rich life together.  She became ill with cancer and we lost her in 2004.  My responsibilities since then continue with the duties attached to serving our church followed by raising my youngest son, David.

 

My two oldest sons are also serving the Lord.  Alex is married to Pam and they have three beautiful children: Samuel, Gemma and Margo.  My second oldest, Dwight, recently completed his enlistment with the Marine Corps, having reached the rank of Captain.  My week includes praying, meeting and keeping in touch with members, preparing Scripture studies and sermons.  I am also on the steering committee for One Macomb, E.A.C.H.

 

Reading the Bible or a book of choice, with instrumental jazz playing softly in the background, is how I wind down. Traditional and contemporary hymns serve to inspire my praising God.  Our household includes a Staffordshire terrier named Cole.  He is a loyal companion to David and myself.  I consider it a privilege to serve my Lord Jesus and the members of the Fisherman’s Net.
