The Rev. Lance Ousley is canon for stewardship and development for the Diocese of Olympia, Seattle, and priest-in-charge at St. John’s, Kirkland, Washington.
He has led the congregation from the brink of closure to thriving in mission through community outreach, financial sustainability, and new membership. Under his short tenure, the church has reduced its debt over $450,000 eliminating a 2020 balloon payment, while simultaneously addressing deferred maintenance.
Canon Ousley has served as keynote speaker and preacher at numerous diocesan conventions and stewardship conferences throughout the Episcopal Church.
