Here's who leads our area

Staff Team:

Casey Flitsch

Area Director

Casey graduated from Snohomish High School in 2013 and met his wife, Aafke, while attending Wheaton College in Illinois. He spent five years as a youth pastor in the Chicago suburbs before joining the Snohomish Valley Staff Team in 2022.

Casey and Aafke's deepest desire is to create spaces where kids feel known, accepted, and loved. They also really love their Instant-Pot. They're currently living in Juanita with their cat and dog. Fun facts: Casey has really bad handwriting and adamantly refuses to stretch before doing anything athletic.

Justus Cagle

Snohomish Young Life Lead

Justus graduated from Snohomish High School in 2019 and jumped into working in the trades. He started an electrical apprenticeship right out of high school but ended up finding his lane in remodeling.

In high school Justus heard about Young Life and had friends that went but didn't join in the fun till the last event of his senior year, The Color War. Three years later he capitalized on an opportunity to come lead for WyldLife and that's when the fire for ministry started. He started on staff in 2022 and can't wait to see where our area will grow.
