Our mission here at Fellowship is to Make Disciples, and part of this mission includes the essential work of building remarkable marriages – marriages centered on Christ and marked by love, enjoyment and commitment to one another. To that end we offer a seven week PreMarital Class for those anticipating marriage.
This ministry is led by three couples – Dr. Randy & Robin Northrup, Justin & Renee Riddle, and Pastors Chuck & Pattie Olson. They share from a legacy of over eighty years of combined experience and partnership.
We want to come alongside engaged couples with resources and tools to build REMARKABLE marriages that will go the distance!

“One of our biggest takeaways from premarital class was a simple, yet powerful quote that Chuck gave, ‘The greatest gift that you can give your spouse is your personal relationship with God.’ Our understanding of the need for a strong relationship with God has become all the more essential as we have realized the great impact that our spiritual walks have on each other and our future marriage. In addition to the great wisdom received, premarital class was great simply because it provided an intentional space for us to have conversation about building a remarkable marriage – something surprisingly difficult to find in the busyness of careers, friendships, and wedding planning.” – Jordan & Jules
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.
