Pastor Alex was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. He attended college at Lakeland College in Sheboygan, WI, where he played football and tennis while there. Following that, he attended seminary at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA. In 1991, he began his parish ministry at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Beckley, WV, where he served for nearly 4 years. It was during that time he met his wife Billie and they were married in 1994. Shortly after that, in February of 1995, Pastor Alex went to prison . . . and began his work in specialized ministry with the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons. He served with them for nearly 22 years beginning as a Staff Chaplain and eventually becoming a Supervisory Chaplain, first in Estill, SC, and then in Edgefield, SC.
Following retirement from the BOP in December of 2016, Pastor Alex took a brief respite then returned to parish ministry in February of 2017. He began his service here at Holy Trinity Lutheran as interim Pastor while the congregation was searching for a new permanent Pastor. In September of 2017 Holy Trinity extended the permanent call to Pastor Alex and he has been here ever since.
Pastor Alex and his wife Billie have been married for 24 years and have 3 daughters, Audrey (who has since gone on to be with the Lord), Emma, and Mayson. Pastor’s hobbies include strength training, jogging, playing guitar, and road cycling (he’s actually a little crazy about the road cycling).
