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.
The next Premarital Class will launch in the fall on October 7, 2018.
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
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.
