Alex was born in El Salvador, Central America. He is the youngest of six siblings and has lived in the US since the age of eight. In the spring of his senior year of High School, he placed his faith in Jesus Christ as his sole and sufficient savior. Upon completing high school, Alex joined the US Military and served in the Army four years. He was deployed to South Korea and Bosnia while in the Army. It was during his time in Bosnia, Herzegovina that he sensed God leading him into full-time ministry.

His formal education began after his four-year commitment in the US Army in 1999 at the University of Houston-Downtown. Shortly thereafter, Alex was introduced to the College of Biblical Studies where he would complete a Bachelor of Science in Christian Leadership (2003). He also served in a Hispanic Ministry as the Youth Pastor. His responsibilities included teaching weekly and mid-week Bible Studies, counseling and discipling youth along with planning youth events.

After completing his studies at CBS, Alex and his wife Marisol moved to Dallas to pursue a Master of Theology (Th.M) at Dallas Theological Seminary. During seminary, Alex served as Youth Pastor at Arlington Hispanic Bible Church, Iglesia Bíblica El Buen Pastor, and as a Hispanic Ministry Intern at Stonebriar Community Church. His responsibilities included teaching weekly and mid- week Bible studies, counseling and discipling youth and leading small groups, and on occasion pulpit ministry. He and his wife were also the interpreters for a missionary team from Sugarland, TX going to Honduras, Central America. While completing his studies at Dallas Seminary, Alex was contacted by CBS and was offered a job as full-time faculty. This led Alex and Marisol back home to Houston in the spring of 2007.

Back in Houston, Alex continued his ministry to youth and young adults at Crossover Bible Fellowship (2007-2009). Alex completed a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies in December 2007 and a Master of Theology in May 2010. He is the founder and lead pastor of Gracia Abundante - Abounding Grace.

Alex has been married to Marisol since December 2001 and they have one daughter, Alexia Marie, and three sons, Caleb, Lucas, and Silas.
