Who We Are

Our churches mission statement “From Olivet, We Follow” is based on the words of the hymn "Hosanna, Loud Hosanna". This hymn describes how Jesus went from the Mount of Olives into Jerusalem and the disciples followed him faithfully. We see ourselves as followers of Jesus who come to Olivet for the renewal necessary to live out our lives as disciples of Jesus.

What is Olivet?
Olivet (or Mount of Olives) is located on the east side of Jerusalem and overlooks the city. In the Bible, it appears in many accounts of scripture. It is where Moses, David, and even Jesus himself drew close to God in times of struggle. It is where the disciples received instruction from Jesus. Olivet (or Mount of Olives) was a unique place of retreat, renewal and discernment. But no one stayed seated in Olivet, it was always a place from which people departed in order to follow God’s call. From Olivet, they followed and so should we.
Olivet Church is a place for all to seek renewal and strengthen. It is a community where God brings people together on their faith journey for discernment and encouragement.
Olivet Church may be geographically off-the-beaten path but sometimes in life we need to take time off the path to reconnect with God in order to gain our strength and direction.

Faith Lewis

Reverend Faith Lewis grew up attending a United Methodist Church in Wooster, Ohio where she first felt the call to be a pastor. It was on a camping retreat in preparation for confirmation. Thinking God must have it wrong, she resisted the call for many years. After graduating from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, she worked for 5 years in Radio/TV/Film Production. While in Columbus Ohio, she served the communications ministry of West Ohio Conference as a web designer and was active in the Servant Leadership School in the late 1990's. She moved to Washington, DC after participating on a Volunteers in Mission team in the Adams Morgan neighborhood and the Church of the Savior ministries. Pastor Faith is a graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington DC and previously served on the pastoral staff of Eldbrooke UMC and Metropolitan Memorial UMC before coming to Olivet in 2008.
