Part of our global outreach and mission here at Cross is to support Reverend Alex LaChapelle who serves as Country Coordinator for the Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program in South Africa. Reverend Alex mentors, guides, and facilitates young adults through a year of international faith-based service. He creates relationships within the ELCSA and works alongside and learns from his ELCSA brothers and sisters.
Alex is originally from Wisconsin and is a devoted Green Bay Packers fan. His faith is deeply rooted in camp ministry. He believes that the first lesson of love is to listen. His first trip to South Africa was to attend the 2010 World Cup.
Alex’s birthday is July 6 and he celebrates the anniversary of his ordination on June 29.
His hobbies include playing the guitar, watching tennis, football, and hockey.
