Meet our Staff
Dr. Mark Olson
Pastor Mark, as the children like to call him, was called to our church in 2017. He had previously served five other Baptist churches as Pastor or Senior Pastor. He believes that local churches are called to lead people to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to help Christian grown strong in the faith. Mark is a graduate of Wake Forest University, B.A., the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, M.Div., and earned a Ph.D. in New Testament and Early Christianity from the University of Virginia. In addition to serving as a church pastor, he also taught religious studies at Sweet Briar College, Virginia Tech, and served for ten years as President of the John Leland Center for Theological Studies, a Baptist seminary in Arlington, VA. He has authored three books about the New Testament, the most recent of which is Romans: The Letter that Changes Christian History.
Mark and his wife Linda have two grown daughters: Kristin, as Assistant United States Attorney in Iowa, and Jaclyn, who earned a Master of Social Work degree from George Mason University and currently resides with her husband David in Sydney, Australia.
This position is currently open and the church is conducting a search to find the man or women God is calling to serve as Associate Pastor.
