Welcome to the Student pages! If your life is dictated by extra-curricular activities and exam schedules, and “summer break” are some of your favorite words, you’ve reached the right place. Here at FPC, we know that the Lord isn’t just preparing you to make an impact later. He has something great planned for you now, and our Associates for Youth Ministry, Colton Willis and Emily Yergler, and Associate for University Ministries, Alex Solorio, are excited to help you find that out. We look forward to talking to you soon!

University/Young Adults Associate
Alex Solorio was born and raised in Houston Texas. He attended Houston Baptist University where he was involved in many organizations including, The HBU Reteam, Residents Life and the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. Alex is a Houston fan to the core but doesn't mind cheering for the Spurs, just don't ask him about Dallas teams. Alex’s hobbies include any outdoor sport, finding good new eats, and watching movies. Houston is where the family is; his Mother and Father are leaders of their respective church. He has an older sister who lives in Thailand, as a missionary, with her husband, and a younger brother that attends Houston Baptist University as a Christianity major. Alex has a Masters in Theological Studies and has been in College ministry for more 3 years. He is set on his passion for college students/young adults and their relationships with Jesus.
"I was saved to live and now I live to serve."
