“He was the most loving, caring  and dedicated,” she said. “He loved the Lord and spent his entire life making sure that others knew Him and salvation.”

“He was more than a pastor to me,” said Atlanta poet Hank Stewart, who has been a member of Antioch for more than three decades. “He was like a father to me and so many other people.  Part of the reason I do poetry is because it was a gift from God, but secondly, because my pastor encouraged me to get out there and give it my best. Instead of aborting my dream, he fertilized it.”

According to the historic African-American church’s website, Alexander became pastor in 1969. While on vacation in Atlanta, his father — at the request of a member of Antioch — asked the younger Alexander to fill in one Sunday while the church prepared to vote on a new pastor.
