Frederick A. McAlpine was born in Nassau on November 28th, 1965, to the parentage of Frederick and Cynthia (nee Penn) McAlpine (both deceased). He is the grandson of the late Captain Simpson C. Penn, often referred to as his hero.
McAlpine grew up in Grand Bahama and is a former student of Bishop Michael Eldon School (formerly Freeport Anglican High). He became the youngest ordained clergyman in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands at the youthful age of seventeen; paving the way for other young men to be ordained in that era.
McAlpine is a global clergyman and a Bahamian politician who has been an advocate for God and Country for the past two decades. He maintains that a nation should have spiritual, moral and conscientious leadership in governance and authority as it relates to the social and economic development of a country.
Having traveled throughout The Bahamas promulgating the Gospel, and observing the lives of Bahamians, their spiritual, social and physical well-being, gave him a greater awareness to go beyond preaching in order to see the lives of his countrymen transformed.
McAlpine is a seasoned spiritual and social orator that is recognized by his peers in both arenas. It is from this position that many doors were opened to him to produce thought-provoking sermons and speeches on a national and international level.
Being a man of faith and national conviction, McAlpine held several Christian and political positions within his community and country, to include: Executive Member, Grand Bahama Christian Council; National Evangelist, United Zion Baptist Convention; Vice President, Grand Bahama Pentecostal Charismatic Ministerial Fellowship; and a former National Vice Chairman of a major political party.
McAlpine served as a distinguished Government Senator in the Honourable Senate in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas from 2007 to 2012. He seeks to represent the people of Pineridge, to be a distinctive voice for its people; especially the oppressed, disadvantaged and neglected of the Grand Bahama community at large.
McAlpine is a concerned, caring, common man, with commonsense and a common touch. He’s a man of the people and for the people; a nationalist at heart. He’s married to the former Tracey Fraser. He’s the father of three and grandfather of two.
