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.
Chuck has been executive pastor of two large churches in Southern California for the past 30 years. He brings a deep passion for developing leaders in the local church and in the marketplace 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 ThM 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.
He enjoys taking long walks with his college sweetheart, Pattie, in their neighborhood or at the beach, reading, a round of golf on occasion, working out, experiencing new foods and restaurants, cheering for the USC Trojans, doing home improvement projects with his two grown sons, and spending as much time as possible with his six grandkids in the Olson’s back yard "forest" or taking them on some crazy adventure.
