International Vice President-Steve Olson-President Minnesota Chapter
Dr. Diane Loeb Secretary

I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at a young age. As I walked to school in the 4   

Th grade I would often pray. One glorious morning I was moved to ask Jesus into my heart and a peace which surpasses all understanding came over me. I was raised by Godly parents and the grandson and nephew of preachers. These were and are an inspiration to me. Spiritual growth, however, became a focus in college. I was (and still am) involved with the Navigators Ministries and with the Officers Christian Fellowship. What a blessed time of growth. I began to understand more deeply the love of Jesus, the mercy of God and the truth that He is our father, a good and faithful Father. Over the years I’ve been involved in leadership in the Officers Christian Fellowship across several military bases and in deployments. I’ve been a member of Pilots for Christ for the last 17 years. It began one winter evening when I decided to go flying with my 4-year-old little boy. When we returned, we walked in on 6 men in the dark, empty terminal with their Bibles open. I joined them and haven’t left since. Serving the needs of others through our gift of flight is a Journey with Jesus. God led me to be an ordained Infantry Officer following my graduation from West Point. Ordained in the manner that I was to be His light and life as an example to others in the profession He put me in. I’m now a retired Army Colonel, a business leader, a Passionate pilot and a devoted husband and father. My ordination includes all these Path’s God has chosen for me.

I’m currently the president of the Minnesota Chapter of Pilots for Christ after serving as

the secretary for almost 16 years. We’ve grown from a small but tightly knit group of 6

to nearly 30 vibrant members and supporters. My goal is to be Christ to others despite my brokenness. I long to follow His leading and to run this race for Him. John 1:1 is such a powerful perspective of our Faith: “Inthe beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
