Alex has been Senior Pastor of Zion since October of 2013. With a heart for transformation in the lives of those in the church, he presents the word in a fresh and relevant way. Alex’s ministry experience has been broad. As well as serving as a pastor he has served as a youth pastor for Zion, as well as at times serving as a camp and as a crusade speaker. He is a graduate of The University of Tennessee, and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Alex’s heart is to encourage believers to live out God’s calling on their lives and follow Christ enthusiastically.
His journey with God began when he was 17. Dealing with suicidal tendencies during his teenage years, he surrendered his life to Jesus. Since then, with a passionate heart, he teaches that God’s plans for us are greater than any we could ever make or imagine.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
