Alex McGinnis

Being a pastor's kid, it is hard to say where in Georgia I am from. I graduated from Rome High School and went to Jacksonville State University to pursue a degree in music education. I met my wife, Jessica, in a music theory class there. I transferred to Georgia State University and changed my major to Jazz Studies. I graduated in 2013 and continued to work as a professional musician until God made clear that music was my plan, not His. I worked as a worship leader as I completed seminary at Candler School of Theology. I graduated with a Master of Divinity in May of 2018 and was appointed here at Philadelphia UMC July 1, 2018. Jess, Jacob (6), Henrietta (3), and I are proud to be Philadelphians.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
