Hello! I’m Rev. Diane Olson,

     I have been ordained and served multiple congregations in the Greater Milwaukee Synod since 2002, as an interim and called pastor. I grew up in a small college town in NW Wisconsin, then studied at Augustana University (Sioux Falls, SD) I majored in Deaf Education, Special Education – Youth at Risk, and Religion. Upon graduation I served 3.5 years in Kenya, East Africa, as a Peace Corps Volunteer Teacher and Volleyball Coach at a primary school for deaf children. After returning to the US, I attended and graduated from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC).
      A little more than a year ago the Rev. Jennifer Olson and I married. Jennifer and I first met at LSTC 20 years ago when I hired her to take my job in the Office of Community Life on campus; I was off to Escanaba, MI, for a year of internship, Jennifer ventured into summer Greek. We have two children, Marcia (12 years old  – 7th  grade) and Jasmine (9 years old – 3rd  grade). We also have two cats and a 9-month-old retriever/hound puppy.
     As a family we love the outdoor activities, hiking, swimming, camping, bicycling; traveling; the performing arts; music; going to museums. Additionally, I enjoy playing my jembe drum from Kenya, reading; 2 dimensional and fiber arts building campfires; trying new recipes; connecting with friends; and spending time journeying and exploring faith and the world with my family.

     I am deeply humbled and excited to serve God with and among you at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church. I pray God’s blessings upon you.
