Hi, I am Alex Perednia, Pastor of the Living Faith Bible Church. I am so glad you have visited our church's website and I would like to give you an opportunity to get to know me better.
My beautiful wife Babette and I have been married for over 25 years. Babette is a gifted worship leader, musician and middle school music educator. We have three children, Chris (a middle school teacher in NYC), Cassie (a junior music major in college) and CeJaelyn (a junior in HS). We have been living and ministering in Brick since Sept. 2011.
I have been in full-time Pastoral ministry since 2000. Before being called to ministry, I worked in the financial services industry for 10 years. Although I grew up in a nominal Catholic family, I came to personal faith in Christ in high school. I earned a B.A. from Gordon College (Wenham, MA) and a M.Div. from Evangelical Seminary (Myerstown, PA).
I am a faithful fan of the NY Mets and hence am skilled at dealing with disappointment! In my spare time, I like to fish, go to the beach with my family or enjoy the fresh air of the hills of PA, where we used to live for over a decade before coming to Brick. I prefer Dunkin’ Donuts coffee over Starbucks, so when I hang out at Starbucks I am usually drinking a green tea. I love everything related to technology and I am an active member of ministry support and mentor groups to keep in constant spiritual and ministry development. My personal life verse is Romans 15:13 and my ministry life verse is Colossians 1:28.
