Gary's 50 Years of Ministry

Please consider honoring Pastor Gary Olson's 50 years of ordained ministry and Ella's partnership throughout by donating to ELCA World Hunger.

Gary and Ella have preached and taught, sang and served for five decades, in service of the Gospel. All the while they've tended the most vulnerable -- those who are sick, grieving, displaced, hungry, incarcerated, or struggling with addiction. Please leave a note of tribute and make a donation to a cause they hold dear.

Thank you for your support!

With gratitude,

The family of Gary & Ella

About ELCA World Hunger

As a long-standing presence in communities in nearly 60 countries, including the United States, ELCA World Hunger is deeply relational and rooted in listening. We steer clear of “one-size-fits-all” answers and have enormous respect for local context, local expertise and local ingenuity. Your gifts support tailored solutions – in areas like health, water, income, education, food security, and more – that can put an end to hunger for the long term.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States with more than 3.8 million members in 10,000 congregations across the nation and the Caribbean.
