Alex and his wife Chanan have been married for 3 years. They have one daughter, Hadleigh and one on the way! Chanan is due 4 weeks after DNOW! Currently, Alex is the student pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Shrewsbury, PA. Remember Joey McLaughlin, the DNOW speaker the last 4 years? Alex was discipled by Joey for several years! Alex has an infectious personality, loves people and pointing people to Jesus, and gets excited about making disciples that make disciples for the fame of the name of Jesus.

Comprised of Justin Engler, Stevan Vela and Ben Vela, San Antonio-based Abandon has been heralded by fans and critics alike. Led by their breakthrough multi-format hit “Hero” and follow-up radio successes “Feel It In Your Heart” and “Providence,” the ensemble’s credits include two acclaimed ForeFront recordings; music heard on ESPN and The Food Network; a Dove Award nomination; and performances on Acquire The Fire, as well as touring slots alongside many of Christian music’s leading artists.
