Coach Alex Teate – Varsity Volleyball

I am extremely excited to be a joining the CCS family, a ministry that is impacting next generations’ leaders for Christ. I was born and raised in Stockbridge, GA, and moved to Port St. Lucie immediately after my wedding to my beautiful wife, Brittany. God has lead us back to Atlanta after a two year stay in south Florida where I coached Golf, Basketball, Softball, and Flag Football. I received my degree in Sports Management from Georgia Southern University and after I graduated from GSU, I had the amazing privilege to work for Christian Campus Fellowship, an organization reaching young adults for Christ. I have always had a passion for playing numerous sports and now teaching the game to today’s youth. I am looking forward to my first year at CCS and coaching Varsity Volleyball and Boys’ Varsity Basketball.

My favorite Bible verse is Colossians 3:12-14:

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
