Church Planting in the Middle East: The Olson's
The Olson’s are faithfully obeying their Spirit felt call to church-plant in the Middle East. They met each other at Moody Bible Institute, and have always felt a call to serve the Lord reaching M’s in their local context abroad. Having joined an organization whose sole goal is to reach M’s, it is their goal to see a mass movement of people to Christ there, employing methods that have proven very effective in building mass movements in the past (i.e. in one case study 51,000 people came to Christ over a small amount of time in SE Asia).
