Alex grew up loving and serving the local church but having his own plans for what he would do in life. Then one night God radically changed his direction, He turned away from his own plans to follow God's lead. After high school Alex enrolled in bible college and served as an intern for 2 years while traveling and ministering in churches and youth ministries. After bible college he worked in para-church organizations and local churches before moving back to Austin with the dream of planting a church. Alex has a passion to help people realize that even though God may be hard to understand, they can still experience him.
