At Fellowship Monrovia, we believe that making disciples happens in community, in relationship. One of the ways we call out men to be in community is through mentoring relationships—relationships that accelerate one’s pursuit of following Christ. Simply put, mentoring is a one/one relationship of trust and transparency in which a more experienced person helps to guide, support, model, and resource a less experienced person. To learn more about participating in the men’s mentoring movement at FM—either as a mentor or a mentee—contact Chuck Olson, Pastor of Leadership Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Chuck has served for over 35 years as an executive pastor. From those years, he brings to Fellowship a deep passion for developing leaders who value the importance of leading not with positions or titles, but with WHO they are. He is constantly pursuing ways to challenge leaders to look at the interior issues of life and leadership.
Chuck did his undergrad work at BIOLA, earned a Th.M. at Dallas Seminary, and received his Doctor of Ministry at Talbot School of Theology. He is also the Founder and President of Lead With Your Life, Inc., a movement of Kingdom leaders who lead from the inside out.
He enjoys taking long walks with his college sweetheart, Pattie, coaching and mentoring men, diving into books on leadership and spiritual formation, running and working out, eating Chinese food, rooting for the USC Trojans, and spending as much time as possible with his six amazing grandkids—Charlie, Dillan, Connor, Kate, Jack, and Mackenzie.
