Pastor Tim Olson
Madelia Church Planting Pastor
Tim was born and raised in Zaire (DRC – Congo now) where his extended family were missionaries with the EFCA. He was saved at a young age. He graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 1996 and received a degree in Youth Ministry. He spent his summers working at the EFCA camp Hidden Acres in Iowa. There he met his wife, Lori. He has five children: Benjamin, Elise, Jonathan, Elijah, and Tomas. In his free time, he enjoys forced family fun, playing disc golf, making music, and just being with family. He spent 19 years in an EFCA Church in Eagle Grove, Iowa, as a youth and associate pastor. God moved him to Madelia in the summer of 2021.
Tim loves studying and teaching God’s Word and is passionate about making disciples. His favorite Bible verses are Romans 12:1-2.“Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
