Dustin Olson – Youth Pastor
Dustin came to Harmony by way of Arkansas. A self proclaimed “church brat” Dustin recalls fondly being at church anytime the doors were open. He answered the a call into ministry when he was 14, which he promptly ignored for 3 years until his senior year in high school. He attended Welch College in Nashville Tennessee where he met his wife Heather (who is vastly out of his league).
Dustin and Heather have 3 children. He has served in almost every ministry a church has to offer, from nursery to elementary kids, to student ministry and even senior adults. He loves family ministry, sports, and nerd culture. Dustin hopes to help people in their walk with Christ by giving students a chance to have a real encounter with Jesus.
Dustin also has a cat that he is fond enough of, as well as a growing action figure collection.
