Pastor Alex Stevens
Alex comes to First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro after almost 20 years of ministry and as an experienced and trained interim pastor. Alex has taken three courses in interim training and, with us, is serving his third church as an interim. Alex earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Wofford College and a M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary. He has extensive training in family systems theory, communications and conflict management.
Recently he rotated off of the presbytery’s Committee on Ministry after serving for six years and on several special task forces. In addition to in depth church work and training, Alex has had four years of experience as a hospice chaplain. He feels called to the commonality of hospice and interim work that he refers to as “transition ministry.”
Alex’s wife, Joan, is also a PCUSA pastor with experience as a pastor and as a hospice chaplain. Joan has also earned a Certificate in Spiritual Formation from Columbia Seminary. They enjoy spending time together camping, bicycling, playing board games and dining with friends. Alex has also recently taken up the game of golf, enjoying the challenge of the game as well as the environment of enjoying time with friends in the great outdoors.
