Rev. Ben Alexander

Senior Pastor

I grew up in Chapel Hill and stayed there for my undergraduate studies.  So, when I received my Master’s of Divinity from Duke in 2008, it was only natural that I promptly framed my diploma in Carolina blue.


Sarah and I were married in 2005 and we have two children, Thomas (10) and Hope (6) and one dog (Donnie, 14).


Previously, I have served as an Associate Pastor at Front Street UMC in Burlington and as the Senior Pastor at Pittsboro UMC.  My passions for ministry include connecting with people, diving into the scriptures, preaching, and trying new things (“I have a crazy idea…”).


If I’m not at church, you might catch me reading, hiking, playing games, spending time with family and friends, or enjoying a good cup of coffee.  I firmly believe that God delights in laughter.
