Summary

I am confident that we are in our final hours here on earth as believers and more importantly as His Bride, The Church. We are in a time where it is a must to be called faithful and as His people our walk with Jesus has to be strong, steady and ready to endure. We can no longer shrink back, stand still, settle for mediocrity, throw up our hands and say good enough. The Spirit of the Lord and the Word of the Lord have to direct our spiritual compass. Our directive from Jesus Himself is to be a movement of people that go into the world and have a Kingdom impact for an outcome that will last forever.

Alex's strong communication  and his ablility to resolve issues to their conclusion demonstrate his strong communication and negotiation skills. He is goal driven and works well with his associates.

Richard Lewman

As an advisor, I found Alex to be very discerning. He has an ability to look beyond the obvious in difficult situations. Alex takes the "great Commission" seriously and lives it out in his life.  He has a high level of knowledge concerning worship and music. I also found Alex to be a man of great integrity. He is a gifted leader.

David Murdock

Alex is a man who has demonstrated, by his tireless efforts to ministry, his commitment to the Word of God, the local church and the Lord Jesus Christ; that he is truly a "God called" man. If you are considering Alex for a position of ministry with your church or christian organization, I believe you will be blessed through his commitment and faithfulness.

Randall Martin

Alex is an accomplished and experienced church leader. He is quite able to teach and excels in motivating others. His love for our Lord Jesus Christ, His Word and the saints is contagious. He is an excellent worship leader. He is not only musically talented, he is gifted in ushering believers into God's presence through worship. Alex is always looking toward what's "next". He is not one to settle into the mediocre. I would highly recommend Alex at many levels for church ministry.
