Charlie Alcock is an Assistant Professor of Youth Ministries and Chaplain/Director of Youth Ministry Events at Indiana Wesleyan University. He has an administrative, faculty type of background paired with Student Ministry events. It mixes the classroom with planning events for people, and, “It really is the perfect blend,” says Alcock.
Alcock came to IWU first from a small church in his hometown. He cherishes his years as a student here. “I was a mixed bag when I came in. I was a P.E. major, actually, and finished with a double major in Music and Christian Ministry,” he stated. Alcock travelled each summer with His Instrument and participated in Chorale for his five years on campus.
This year, Alcock was asked by The Wesleyan Church to plan out the general sessions for General Conference. He plans to take his knowledge on youth conventions and use it to benefit General Conference. Alcock said, “In essence, I will create an environment for worship and business at the same time. I will design the look, sound, lights, and media. Each session needs to flow.”
Alcock’s passions align with his career, and that makes him excel at his job and influence those around him greatly.
