Pastor Rob Olsen
Start Date: August 17, 1992
Rob was born in Philippi, West Virginia, but grew up in Roseville, Minnesota, where he attended Ramsey Senior High. He graduated with a degree in Biology from Bethel College and then sensed God calling him to full-time Christian service. He earned a Master of Divinity degree from Bethel Seminary in 1980 and received a call from the Mona Shores Baptist Church in Muskegon, Michigan to be their Youth Pastor and Director of Christian Education. He asked Caroline Turnwall to marry him. He didn’t want to go alone. She said yes! Four and one half years later, First Baptist Church in Willmar, Minnesota asked him to come and be their Associate Pastor of Christian Education. In 1992, six and one half years later, Becker Baptist Church extended a call to Rob to come and be their pastor. Rob loves people. He loves to see them discover how God wants them to serve in His Kingdom. Rob’s wife, Caroline, works in the Becker Public Schools, and his two children, Christine and Sarah, have jobs in the Twin Cities.
