Pastor David Alexander

Senior Pastor

David has served as a Pastor in the Mansfield community since 2005. After serving in various leadership roles, he was appointed as the Senior Pastor of First Methodist Mansfield in January of 2015.

David has described his passion and understanding of his pastoral ministry in this way. “I believe that following Jesus is the best way to live. My life and my work is about helping people follow Jesus.”

In his role as Senior Pastor, Pastor David casts the vision and direction for the entire church family while also working to continue to develop relevant and compelling teaching that enables each person to continue growing in deeper love with God, love with others and service to the world.

David is also the author of the book The Deep End, which focuses on the deep questions of the Christian faith; a book he describes as being for anyone who has ever felt like “the process of finding faith sometimes feels like you are losing faith.”

Most weekends David preaches at our Sunday 9:30 am service and the 11:00 am service. Find more information about our weekend worship services here.

David is married to Stephanie. They have one daughter, Anna, and a son, Jack. If you would like to read more of David’s writings, you can find those at
