Alex Chai | Lead Pastor

Alex is passionate about his family, the local church, communicating God’s Word clearly, helping believers find their “sweet spot,” missions, and releasing the next generation. He has a B.A. from UCLA and a master’s degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. He spent several years with YWAM in Micronesia and the Philippines where he met his amazing wife Debbie. Together Alex and Debbie have successfully planted three churches in Montana: Polson Foursquare, New Hope Missoula, and Word of Life Billings. Alex was on the National Foursquare Church Plant Task Force and was the Church Planting Coordinator for the North Central District for many years. During this season Alex and Debbie had the opportunity to partner with and empower numerous other couples to church plant. Alex also served for two years at an amazing church, New Hope Christian Fellowship Oahu with Wayne Cordeiro. Alex and Debbie have two children, Jessica (married to Eddy) and Josh, and two grandchildren – Elijah and Liam. He enjoys riding his motorcycle, playing the guitar, and hunting. As for ice cream he likes chocolate with peanut butter. If Alex wasn’t in ministry he would like to be a part of a cutting edge company that introduces innovative products that change people’s lives, like Apple!
