Alex was the third president of Southern Evangelical Seminary and Bible College, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, from 2001 until 2005, and under his leadership the school experienced unprecedented growth. Prior, Alex served as Focus on the Family’s first director of teen apologetics. He has also served as the director of apologetics and Christian worldview at North Greenville University.
Alex’s greatest passion is growing the body of Christ and instructing Christians on how to stand strong in the face of ever-diminishing morals, ethics, and values. In the early 1990s, Alex pioneered the Truth for a New Generation Conference designed to equip teens and adults to know what they believe and defend their faith. The conferences continue to be held yearly and feature well-known and respected speakers such as Josh McDowell, Ravi Zacharias, Lee Strobel, Eric Metaxas, Todd Starnes, Joni Eareckson Tada, Will Graham, and many others.
