Alex grew up in the DFW area and attended Dallas Baptist University. He and his wife Alicia were married in 2012 and moved to central Florida in 2013, where Alex served as a youth minister while attending Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando (M.Div. '18). In 2017, they were excited to return home to Dallas with the call to serve at NsP. Alex and Alicia have four children: Henry (2015-2018), Julia (2018), Lucy (2020), and Norah Jane (2022). During some of the darkest days in their lives, with the loss of their sweet son Henry, the Deans were thankful to lean on God's people here at New St. Peters, and they continue to be grateful for God's call to this church. In 2022, Alex was called to serve as lead pastor. It continues to be a joy serve this congregation.
