Zion Lutheran Church Leadership

Zion Lutheran Church is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.

Dr. Mark Olson

Pastor

Pastor Mark most recently finished a project at the AFLBS (Association Free Lutheran Bible School) in Minneapolis where he successfully worked on accredidation of AFLBS credits. Pastor has accepted the call to be the full time lead at Mt. Sion and Zion Lutheran Churches. He has also led several congregations in rural areas from Illinois to Toiga, ND. Pastor Mark is an avid outdoorsman that enjoys anything physically challenging that gets him outside- cross country skiing, camping, hiking, frisbee golf,  biking, and tooling around on his Vespa to name a few! He and his lovely wife Dawn have four grown children and several grandchildren. Pastor Olson has a heart for the broken and loves getting to know people!
