Gary Olson

Position: Shepherding Pastor

As Shepherding Pastor I have the privilege of working alongside our leadership teams to oversee care for those who call Moraine Valley Church their home. I also have the privilege of working alongside our Guest Ministry as we assist people who come through our doors in making at least three significant connections – connecting with the people at Moraine, the various ministries of Moraine and with the Lord Jesus Christ himself. I also work with our Global Outreach Team to make the body aware of our missionaries, their ministries and to encourage prayer for them and connection with them as they, and we, seek to extend the reach of the gospel. I am married to the love of my life, Cathleen (Cathie). We have four adult children, all married, and fourteen grandchildren who light up our lives. We enjoy planting a sand chair on nice sandy beaches, riding our motorcycle with other motorcycle enthusiasts and investing time with our family.
