Pastor Jay Alexander grew up in Seattle with his loving family of 5. His mother and father, Paul and Anita, his twin brother Dan and his older brother Matthew. He is married to his lovely wife Shelly and they have two wonderful children Olivia and Thad. At age 10, he and Dan met an outgoing neighbor kid, Matt Krachunis, and have been fast friends ever since. Pastor Jay and his family were one of the three original FVC families. Ten plus years later that church is still going strong and Jay, Dan and Matt still serve the Lord as friends, leaders, husbands, fathers, and disciples of God.
Pastor Jay served his country four years as a Marine Combat Instructor of Water Survival (MCIWS) in the Marine core. After four years of service he was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant. Following his return home he began working as a firefighter for the Redmond Fire Department; around the same time he was helping Pastor Matt start the church (2003). God blessed his faithfulness and hard work and he is now a Lieutenant while also being a pastor of Faith and Victory Church.
Pastor Jay’s title is Associate Pastor but he is so much more. He serves as Matt’s armor bearer protecting, strengthening, and encouraging him as the wares and tares of ministry come and go. He leads the preparation of the annual Men’s Advance and also meets and mentors the men of the church.
