Pastor Alex grew up in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. Alex has been leading worship since he was 14 years old, where soon after coming to know Jesus he was given a guitar and a chance to join the youth worship band. Having been involved with music from a young age, Alex developed a passion for worship and a desire to minister to others.
Alex attended University of Valley Forge for pastoral ministry where he met his wife, Jaclyn. Alex and Jaclyn were involved in regional worship ministry in the years following, as well as part of a church planting team in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
Alex and Jaclyn married June 2, 2007 and six weeks later moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where God had called them to devote a season of their lives to focused worship, prayer, and training at the International House of Prayer. At IHOP-KC Alex had the opportunity to serve on staff as a Senior Sound Producer and Music Technology Instructor working with worship leaders Matt Gilman, Cory Asbury, Misty Edwards, Justin Rizzo, and others. This season of training strengthened his passion for worship, media, and devotion to Jesus.
After a season in Kansas City, Alex returned to the University of Valley Forge to complete his studies in Digital Media, where he received training in audio, video, graphic design, church media, and Bible. Since being back in the Philadelphia area he has worked with Calvary Church as Media Director; strengthening the use of media, developing an online video archive, and spearheading various media and branding efforts. In August of 2012 Alex jumped on board full-time here at Calvary Church as Worship and Creative Arts Pastor.
Alex is an ordained minister and is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity degree at Regent University. Whether it be through music, pastoral ministry, or media and the arts, Alex has a passion to communicate Jesus, and see others come into deeper relationship with Him!
