Dr. Creighton Alexander
Dr. Creighton Alexander Minister of Discipleship

Dr. Creighton Alexander joined Acts 2 as Minister of Discipleship in January 2017. Prior to becoming part of the Acts 2 family, Creghton served for 18 years as a Campus Pastor at four universities:  Southern Methodist University, The University of Kansas, University of Missouri - Kansas City and the University of Alabama. From there, he served as interim pastor at Harrah United Methodist Church in Harrah, Okla., before joining the Acts 2 ministry.

 

As the Minister of Discipleship, Creighton’s focus is on deepening the experience that Acts 2:42-47 paints of the church, specifically in terms of how Acts 2:46 describes what was taking place in the disciples’ homes:

 

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” – Acts 2:46, NIV

 

In line with this scripture, Creighton spends a lot of his time creating discipleship opportunities with the goal of strengthening each member’s home at Acts 2 to be missional centers that help others in their communities, schools, clubs and relationships find their way to God.

 

Creighton and Nikki have been married for 22 years, having met while attending Texas Tech University. They both graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in 1998. In July 2016, Creighton completed a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Kansas. 

 

Creighton and Nikki have three children: Canon James, Eve Whitby and Cosmo Seth. Nikki is a certified yoga instructor and teaches classes in Ada and Coalgate. She is also a boutique breeder of Standard Poodles and Golden-doodles. Creighton is an Assistant Scout Master for Troop 4 in Ada.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I’m a DIYer who likes a good home repair challenge. I love camping with my family, and I’m into all things Boy Scouts. Really, I’m in that season of life where my spare time is best spent being into whatever my kids are into so I can the make the most out of the time I have with them.

 

Why do you think Acts 2 is a good fit for your family?

We love the idea of belonging to a community that wants to love God and love their neighbors.

 

What is your favorite Bible verse?

Luke 15 is one of my favorites – The parable of the lost sheep. Of course, I love the 3D, living picture of the local church that Acts 2:42-47 paints in my imagination. Genesis 2:25 is another one of my favorites - check out my sermon about that here.

 

What is your favorite TV show or movie?

Anything Sci-Fi! 

 

On a scale of 1-10, how much do you need coffee to function in the mornings?

I prefer diet cokes!
