Staff & Elders


Dr. Alec Flynt
Senior Pastor

Alec has been the Senior Pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church since 2013. Prior to serving at Covenant, Alec was an associate pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Baton Rouge.  He is married to Arden and they have three children, Caleb, Elizabeth Gray, and Lydia.

Alec grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and graduated from the University of Florida.  He received a Master of Divinity Degree from Princeton Seminary and recently completed his Doctor of Ministry from Reformed Theological Seminary.

Alec is passionate about his garage, his family, and Jesus (but not in that order).

Rev. Lanier Wood
Associate Pastor

Lanier serves as the Associate Pastor, spending most of his time in youth and family ministry. He and Leslie both graduated from Furman University. They still day dream about mountains and the foothills of the Carolinas. Lanier received a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. He was a pastor in Birmingham, AL at Cross Creek Church (PCA) before planting RUF at the University of South Alabama. Lanier served as the Campus Minister for 5 years before coming on staff at Covenant here in Mobile. If you ask Lanier what he loves he’ll likely tell you: Jesus, his Wife, his Family, being a ‘Bammer,’ riding bikes, working out, coffee, people, & doing pretty much anything outside. If you ask him what he abhors, it’ll be the “other” team, corndogs, communication, & organization. He’d love to make you a cup of coffee & talk (perhaps obsess) about any of his or your loves.

Rob Still
Youth Pastor

Rob graduated from Auburn in 2018 with a degree in Accounting and started in youth ministry right after graduation as an RYM Intern at First Presbyterian Church in Opelika, AL. He’s passionate about the Bible, sneakers, Tolkien, music, bass guitar, video games (including stint in High School playing World of War Craft professionally), and Kansas City football.
