The Office of the Bishop is pleased to announce that a new staff member is joining us in our work of serving the Diocese of Olympia. Alex Flannagan has just stepped into the role of Youth Ministry Coordinator and will be working with our Faith Formation Team. As Youth Ministry Coordinator for the Diocese of Olympia, Alex Flannagan will oversee all activities for pre-teens and teens (6th-12th grades), including winter and spring weekend retreats and summer activities. He’ll work alongside youth ministry leaders in local churches, providing resources and consultation to support outreach to youth throughout Western Washington.
After college, Alex moved to the United States from the UK and worked at Camp Huston, the Diocese of Olympia’s camp in the Cascade mountains, for 10 years. During that time he assumed the position of Program Director, managing the residential summer camp program of 40 staff and 350 campers and coordinating the year-round conference and retreat center which provides hospitality to 5,000 guests annually. More recently he moved to Olympia to work for a non-profit supporting survivors of domestic violence. He graduated with honors from the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK, in International Hospitality Management and Marketing.
