Alex Howarton is the Pastor of Music / Youth Ministries at Church Alive. He and his wife, Rachel, lead the worship services on weekends, and head up the music ministry area for special events and Life Crusades. Alex and his wife also pastor the Church Alive youth (Youth Alive).
 
Alex was born in Kiev, Ukraine, where he and his family were saved out of atheism. At the age of 9 he moved to Seguin, Texas with his family. There, they attended a local church, where he grew and began to serve on the youth group worship team as a teenager.
 
After graduating high school, he attended Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU), receiving a bachelor of arts in Music Ministry and an associate’s degree in Biblical Studies. During that time, he served and interned at local churches, helping with their youth ministries, serving on weekend worship teams, and helped with starting a youth worship team at one of the locations. After graduating from SAGU, he married Rachel in Midlothian, TX, and a year later, in 2013, they began attending and serving at Church Alive.
 
Having spent many years working with youth, Alex has a desire to see the younger generations become like the first disciples’ of Jesus, loving others, and reaching the world in His name. He also sees music as an instrument to draw people into the presence of God, where they can find joy, forgiveness, and healing.
