Alex Stark is an OCCA fellow in Sydney, Australia. He is committed to communicating the Christian story both clearly and credibly in as many settings as possible. His current interests are in social formation and wisdom, existential philosophy, and the influence of big tech in our lives.

Alex grew up in Brisbane, Australia. He spent most of his time playing sports with friends. When he was fifteen, he heard the Christian story in a way that unlocked his imagination, forcing him to ask deep questions about life to which the person of Jesus was the answer. After graduating from high school Alex went on to study theology in Brisbane and Oxford, showing particular interest in the writing of Christian ethicists and postmodern feminism. He now lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife, Kath, and spends his time speaking with people who have questions about the Christian faith.

Alex speaks in churches and universities, at conferences, and in the corporate world. He particularly loves helping young people navigate their questions, having worked with them for just under a decade. Alex has led outreach teams in local parish missions, as well as volunteer chaplains at music festivals and school-leaver celebrations in Australia. In all of this, he has been continually reminded that the Christian story isn’t just true news but also good news, and he is committed to helping people explore the truth and beauty of God’s good story.

Areas of Interest: philosophical anthropology, wisdom and social formation, anxiety, justice, and the way that literature maps out the human predicament.

Christian faith isn't about not having doubts; it's about being honest about our doubts and bringing them to God. That's real faith: trusting God with what we can and trusting Him to form the parts of us we've not yet entrusted to Him.
