Who We Are
We are a country church In the city limits, where you'll hear the simple tones of a piano accompaniment to the volunteer choir of 12 to 15 voices. You'll be inspired by old standard hymns of Presbyterian background and experience a school.
The Olivet Church had her beginnings In 1872, As a mission organized by members Of First Presbyterian Church Of Staunton. Those engaged In mission work were Mr. And Mrs. Talbot, B. Coleman, Mary Lushbaugh, And Mrs. Sarah A. Kayser.
These are the dedicated people who make Olivet operate so smoothly.
Rev. Lee Thomas grew up In North Carolina. He Is graduate Of Montreat College And Union Theological Seminary Of Richmond. Lee felt God calling him into ministry while a college student. A love for music And childhood piano lessons equipped him to serve.
Our church has a unicameral system With 18 Elders elected For three rotating years. Each elder Is elected by the congregation And ordained For their invaluable role In a special ceremony before the congregation.
Most Of the day-To-day operations In our church are done by various committees. The hard work Of these dedicated individuals Is appreciated by our entire congregation.
