A Miami native, Steve Alessi was called into ministry at the age of 19 and has faithfully answered that call through Pastoral ministry for over 30 years. After graduating from Southeastern University in 1984, he served along side his parents as Associate Pastor of Grace Church of Kendall and in 1997 he founded Metro Life Church in Doral, Florida, with his wife, Mary Alessi. Today he enjoys doing ministry with the help and involvement of his son Christopher, and three daughters, Stephanie, Lauren and Gabrielle. Under his leadership, Metro Life Church has two growing campuses, a vibrant and innovative online campus, and a brand new podcast, as well as local and global outreaches through its Big Serve ministries.
Steve serves his local community as a member on the Doral and Faith Based Charities Advisory Committee and is the Chaplain of the Doral Police Department. He also enjoys the fellowship of his Pastor, Mike Hayes, and the Churches in Covenant (CIC Network) in Dallas, Texas and is a member of the Champions Network with Pastor Joel Osteen.
Mary Alessi is a singer/songwriter/author (www.maryalessi.com) whose passion is to lead people to God through worship. Her commitment to worship has compelled her to record four music projects which include “Whatever it Takes,” “More,” “When Women Worship,” and “Pressing On.” Her work in Christian music has been recognized by her peers when her song, “Great Grace” was nominated for a Dove Award by the Gospel Music Association.
She serves as co-Pastor at Metro Life Church in Doral and Dadeland, along with her husband, Steve. Together they are the proud parents of four adult children who serve alongside of them in leadership. As a leader and primary songwriter for Metro Life Worship, having recently released their first EP “Revive”, she is now helping to lay the foundation for a new generation of worship leaders.
