Alex was one of the founding pastors of Polaris. He graduated from Kentucky Christian University in 1999, moved back home to northeastern Ohio, and helped plan Polaris Christian Church from the ground up. That same year, Alex married his college girlfriend, Kelli. His early responsibilities included making graphics and videos while teaching in many Sunday services. Eventually, he moved on to be the Youth Minister. Next, he became the Associate Pastor, leading most of the ministry-side of the church. Alex stepped into the Lead Pastor role in the fall of 2009.
Alex and Kelli have two children and have lived in Brunswick since the year 2000. Kelli serves in Children's Ministry and often sings on the Worship Team. She's also a full-time career woman. They spend countless evenings at the baseball fields cheering on their two boys. Alex is also the two-time corn hole champion at the annual Polaris picnic. He had a different teammate each year, so it was clearly his skill that won the tournament!
Polaris is governed by a Board of Elders. Alex is accountable to the Board. They discern God's vision for Polaris together. The Elder Board creates healthy and Biblical policies. Alex then works with the people of Polaris to build our church within the boundaries of those policies.
