Alex HockettVideo Content Director at Watermark Community Church
My name is Alex, and I joined the Technical Arts team in February of 2017. I started as a volunteer with the Student Ministry’s AV team, and when they realized they couldn’t get rid of me they asked me to join their staff. I had the blessing of growing up in a Christian home with parents who modeled the life of Jesus daily. I came to know Christ when I was 13, when I understood that my parent’s faith was not my faith. That inspired me to go to Bible college and one day work in a church. I was convinced God had designed me to be a Student Pastor. Just shy of 3 years in that position, I had realized my gifts and skill sets were in the Technical Services and Arts world and transitioned out of that Student Pastor role, and started serving at Watermark.
I graduated college from a small school in Boston in May of 2010, with a Bachelors of Science in Biblical Studies. I moved to Dallas in March of 2012. I started attending Watermark in September of 2014; and in that short time I have watched God move so miraculously in my life. I enjoy life with my wife, 2 children and 2 dogs.
I have no real area of expertise, I just love to learn, and remove obstacles. I enjoy graphic design, and I get to do that from time to time in my role here. I enjoy photography and try take at least one photo a day. Getting to serve other leaders, as those leaders tell others about Jesus is the highlight of my job. At that point, is it a job?
TOUR: Watermark Community Church — A Long-Term Plan with a Focus on Stewardship
More than a decade ago, Watermark Community Church sought to create a new home for their church that appealed to the dead-churched, de-churched and un-churched.
They purchased land with an existing office building and partnered with OMNIPLAN to create a long-term masterplan to develop a campus that served their needs. The four-phase plan would allow them to build debt-free as God made funds available, and reflected the church’s core values of authenticity, integrity, warmth and community.
Now complete, Watermark is known locally as a vibrant space, bustling with activity seven days a week. The facility was designed for the people who make up the church, to be the Church to the community. Thus, all buildings are focused around a town square for community gathering and social activities, acting as the multi-functional heart of the urban campus.
