After receiving his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO, Alex Lahue became a Pastor at Messiah Lutheran in 2019.  He considers it a privilege to serve the congregation of Messiah and its surrounding community by pointing people to Jesus, which he does in several ways. From preaching and teaching to gathering individuals around a common goal, or by simply inducing laughter and excitement!

Pastor Alex first met his wife, Erin in college at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri; one of the coldest parts of the state! But their hearts have been warmed by their 3 children. Their awesome sons, Jax and Judah, and their precious and dearly missed daughter, Talliah who is with Jesus.

In his free time, Pastor Alex enjoys watching movies and TV (one of his favorite shows being Gilmore Girls), singing to his favorite songs, and playing board games. Many know Alex to be humble, so some of his greatest accomplishments are not always known. For example, he is the State Champion in Oklahoma and Missouri, the Midwest Regional Champion, and North American Runner-up in the board game, “ICE COOL”.  It is a penguin-flicking game not for the faint of heart, and if you ask, he may teach you the secrets of the game!
