Paul Alexander, National Director of Operations and Information for Cru
Paul graduated in 1995 with a degree in Petroleum Engineering from Louisiana State University. While in college, he worked in the petroleum industry for 3 summers as an intern before spending his final summer on an overseas mission trip with Cru. He joined full-time staff with Cru in 1996.
Paul has served in various field, operations and human resources roles during his year career on staff. Highlights include serving as National Director of Operation for the Campus Ministry, leading summer missions with students, and helping coach the movement at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. His wife, Anne, continues to work as a mom of their 4 kids and graphic designer for the ministry. When Paul is not thinking about ways to move the message of Jesus forward, you can usually find him on the basketball court or in search of the newest foodie joint.
Serving in operations and technical roles might not initially seems like the work of missionaries. As National Director of Operations and Information for Cru, Paul loves to engage with his team on the missional outcomes they can achieve, not matter what role they serve in with Cru.
