Tim and Jane Olson were raised in faith traditions that were much different than the Pentecostal church they now pastor. Their encounter with Christ was a life altering experience and eventually led Tim to attend Bible college.
After graduation Tim and Jane were instrumental in planting three churches in Minnesota and North Dakota. Tim’s passion for those who don’t know Christ led them back to the Bible college he attended where he served as Academic Dean before eventually launching a 13 year adventure as a missionary in Russia and Scandinavia.
The Olsons arrived in Sioux Falls in September 2009 and since their arrival God has given consistent growth to the Word of Life with new works starting in Brookings and Vermillion. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Word of Life. Come join us!
