Staff & Team Leaders

Rev. Alex Williams

Lead Pastor
Alex is a graduate of Texas A&M University and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois. A United Methodist by birth, Alex felt called to ministry during high school. Before starting his pastoral ministry career, Alex served many churches working with youth and college students, leading contemporary worship, and working with a non-profit youth mission organization for over 10 years.
He met his wife Emma, a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, at seminary in Chicago. Emma, who is also a pastor, works for our North Texas Conference office. They have one young son named Henry and a massive goldendoodle dog named Stanley.
Alex is passionate about sports, books, movies, music, Chicago deep-dish pizza and cheesecake. Most of all, Alex desires to see the hope of Jesus Christ present in a world full of chaos and violence.

Liz Krahulik

Director of Family Ministries
Liz graduated from Texas A&M in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication and minor in Sports Marketing, with dreams of working for the Texas Rangers someday, but couldn’t fight her calling to ministry. Her passion for leading students to God runs deep, closely followed by her adoration and love of sloths.
Liz loves all sweets and treats; a connoisseur of pie one might say. She can be found skipping around campus singing Christmas carols year round because she is Santa’s most cheerful elf. Liz and her husband Zach enjoy terrorizing their cat, Chloe, in their free time.

Jordan Cramer

Worship Director
Jordan loves music almost as much as he loves Jesus.
Jordan has an associates degree in art and is continuing to pursue his Bachelors degree. He got married in August 2013 to Sharon Cramer.
Jordan also loves Batman.

She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Education and spent 12 years in the classroom working with various grades preschool-8.

She has been married to her husband Chris for 14 years and has two amazing children. They relocated from Houston to live in The Colony 5 years ago.
