The Music Ministry of Mount Olive is blessed to have many outstanding voices in our choirs. In the past, our Senior Choir has performed at the San Diego County Fair for Gospel Night and sung for various special services throughout the city. Today, our choir continues to be a blessing to our congregation with a mixture of both uptempo spiritual songs and traditional hymns to satisfy the soul.
Our Senior Choir is lead under the direction of DeShun Dunn (Choir President) and Barbara Dunn (Choir Director). We are blessed to have Earl Vaults (saxophonist) and James Denny (percussionist) giving our choir musical accompaniment.
The Men’s Ministry at Mount Olive is designed to develop good men and make them better men for Christ. To accomplish this our ministry seeks to teach men to be followers of Jesus Christ by becoming Men of Wisdom, Men who Witness, and Men who Worship, and Men of the Word.
Each Wednesday evening, beginning at 7:00 pm, our Men’s Ministry provides a systematic study of the Word of God through the teaching of Pastor Clater. Contact the church for more information regarding study times and lesson topics at (619) 239-0689.
The Women’s Ministry at Mount Olive provides support to women in a spirit of love and compassion. Together, the women learn who they are in Christ, the Power of Prayer and how to balance your time effectively.
The ministry meets monthly at our church and every other other month provides fun activities off-site events that our women attend. Call the church at (619) 239-0689 for more information.
Our Hospitality Ministry is comprised of members who share the spiritual gift of hospitality and sharing, especially to our guests and visitors to our church. Our ministry is chaired by Sharon Lewars, who along with her staff, warmly greet our members and their guests as they arrive to worship. In addition, this ministry sends “Get Well” cards to our those who are sick and contacts members when they are absent from worship for a period of time.
The Hospitality Ministry is the bridge between the congregation and the church staff so that the Pastor, and the Deacons, can be attentive to the needs of the church, as well as maintaining an active, welcoming environment in which to worship.
Our Youth Ministry meets on Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. The Bible lessons that the youth are studying are designed to equip and empower our youth to become young ambassadors for Christ. Students are encouraged to develop a deeper appreciation for the Word of God and to proudly share that knowledge with their friends.
Each Wednesday at noon, Mount Olive offers Bible study for those who want to learn the Bible. Students are encouraged to bring their lunch and their Bibles as they delve deep into the Word of God. Sis. Josephine Jones is the facilitator of these one-hour lessons. Her deep knowledge of the Word of God and her engaging teaching style is truly an asset to our church and to all who attend these noon classes.

Our Children’s Ministry is designed to encourage children to develop their faith in the Lord through sound Biblical teaching and age-appropriate group activities. Each Wednesday evening, our children are taught the Word of God by loving, caring church staff. Their easy-going style and calm demeanor are a natural draw for children. Reading the Bible aloud, crossword puzzles, and other group activities encourage our children to explore the wonders of God through song, mime, and even dance.

Reaching, Teaching and Bringing Others Back to a Life of Hope and Promise
Mount Olive Church seeks to glorify Jesus Christ by reaching those who are lost, teaching those who want to learn, caring for those in need, and loving people back to a life that will glorify the Savior. Here is what we do to help people in our urban neighborhoods meet their basic necessities and to further the gospel of Jesus Christ:
Mount Olive Church has partnered with the San Diego Food Bank Network to provide canned goods and non-perishable items to families in need. We encourage our members to put their faith into action by serving families who are in need by providing personalized Care Packages or in-home cleaning services that address the basic needs of families who live within the target area of our church community.
Witnessing for Jesus
Whether you have been formally trained in sharing your faith, we at Mount Olive Church make every effort to share our faith with others who do not know the good news of Jesus Christ. Not only do we spend time in prayer, but we actively encourage our members to show kindness towards others through acts of service to demonstrate the true love of Christ. We further encourage our youth and our adults to systematically study the Bible so that one can correctly and confidently defend the faith when the time comes.
Pastors on Point
Mount Olive participates with over 40 churches across San Diego County, from various denominations, to plan and implement a series of community development ministry efforts in order to mobilize the church and public agencies across the County to work together with our neighbors to meet the social needs of our inner city families. We trust that God will be glorified through our collaborative effort of prayer for our communities and job training classes for those who need to retool their work skills so that they can get back into the job market.
