While Curt can brag about accomplishments during his professional career, his relationship with Jesus Christ far surpasses everything in his life. He is my Lord and my God.
Curt is an award-winning writer, having earned Associated Press writing awards in Ohio in 2001 and New York State in 1995. He has earned accomplishments at every level of his career. While he loved journalism, God compelled him to end that in summer 2013 when he was in his third round of unemployment in four years from that industry. He is transitioning his career away from journalism and he is waiting for God to reveal what’s next. He has been working part-time since mid-May 2014.
Curt Olson has been a professional journalist for more than 20 years, which included serving in his dream job as editorial page editor at a daily newspaper in the Cleveland, Ohio area. He also served as a beat writer covering government or public and higher education, in the Cleveland area and a newspaper in Jamestown, N.Y., and a nonprofit website journalist in Texas and South Carolina uncovering waste, fraud, and abuse in state governments as an investigative reporter.
At the newspaper in the Cleveland area Curt also served as religion editor for five years. He found that incredibly rewarding when traditional journalists primarily don’t care about faith and have no understanding of how to communicate it.
Curt is a proud graduate of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and Maple Grove Junior-Senior High School in Bemus Point, New York. Other than college, he lived in Western New York State for 28 years before moving to the Cleveland, Ohio area in April 1996 when he was hired as a newspaper reporter there.
After marrying his wife, Lynette, in 2000, the Olsons lived in the Cleveland area about a dozen years before moving to Round Rock, Texas in July 2011 and then the Columbia, S.C, area about 18 months later. Curt regards his greatest accomplishment being married to his best friend, Lynette, and being the father of Samuel and Olivia. Curt and Lynette have strived to have a marriage and family life grounded in the truth of God’s word. It’s odd that people have to do this today, but yes, Curt believes marriage is between a man and a woman because that’s God’s model.
