Who We Are
About Alex Bryant Ministries
In July 2016, Alex was inspired to create a video about the pain and confusion he felt after the killing of five police officers in Dallas. This took place after the killing of several unarmed black men across the country by police. The video was shared on Alex’s personal Facebook and viewed over 47 million times.
Alex felt called to begin speaking on racism, reconciliation, and discipleship to the body of Christ. His wife of 25 years, Angela, joined him in this calling, and Alex Bryant Ministries was born in October 2019. The Lord has used the Bryants’ experience as an interracial couple with five biracial children as they share the power of reconciliation at businesses, churches, and events across the country. Besides speaking, the ministry has also grown to include a book, Let’s Start Again, and The Way We See It podcast.

Alex and Angela want to make disciples of Jesus, and this is the mission and heart behind everything they do.
Our Mission & Vision
It’s Time To Make Disciples
MISSION: To help as many people as possible have a life changing and intimately personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We strive to teach people God’s Word and to help them see how they can apply His principles to their lives. It is our goal to make Jesus known and to lift Him up so that He might draw all men and women unto himself.
VISION: We have been called to work in full time vocational ministry with the specific goal of fulfilling the command of the Great Commission – to go into all the world and make DISCIPLES. We believe that first being reconciled to God, then within one’s own self, and finally being reconciled to our fellow man, is all part of becoming a disciple. We minister to people’s mental, emotional, spiritual, and relational needs with practical preaching, teaching, and writing.
Disciples make disciples. In addition to the lives that we touch with the message of reconciliation, our goal is to train and release 100 disciples into full time ministry before we meet Jesus. Developing leaders to advance God’s kingdom into future generations is a vital component of Alex Bryant Ministries.
Our Core Values
The Pillars of Our Ministry
The Bible is our ultimate source of TRUTH. In order to ensure the disciples we train, teach, and mentor are true followers of Christ, we will teach them principles that are found in the Bible. These Biblical principles have been proven to stand the test of time.
Jesus walked on the earth and lived a perfect life. His standard and call for us is to be Holy. We believe that everything we do should be done with the highest quality and most precise attention to detail. We will remember everything that we do is to be done for the creator of the universe and the standard should always be excellence.
In our journey to grow and mature, mistakes will surely be made. While it is our goal to strive for excellence, we endeavor to learn from any and all mistakes that we will inevitably make, and we will be committed to continuous improvement in order to avoid making the same mistakes over and over again. Win or learn is the goal.
Giving 100% of our effort is the only acceptable standard that we will live by. It takes no talent to give full effort. This will be expected of us and anyone that we influence.
While acknowledging that some things in life will come to us after we press on during the struggle, we will always strive to push ourselves and will be committed to never quitting or giving up.
We will always remember that we are on a journey, and our journey includes being a part of other people’s lives. On this journey, we endeavor to find, train, and release leaders into ministry, giving them a platform to use their gifts and talents for God in keeping with our mission to make disciples.
