Beyond all else, JP OLSON credits the spiritual environment of her youth and adulthood as the propelling force in her life. J.P. OLSON is a woman of bold courage, born to and nurtured by God fearing Christian parents who fused into her life principles of decency, integrity, honesty and all the ingredients for a purposeful life and witness for Jesus Christ. This provides the confidence and Christian perspective she needs in dealing with concerns of today. Rather than choosing to be a spectator in the arena of life, she maintains the posture of participant. Her lifestyle when it comes to evangelism is “reaching out,” not “closing in.” “Don’t Sit But Serve.”
JP Olson is an ordained minister and Founder of Journey Into The Word Ministry: Because JP heeded God’s call on her life, she believes the Word of God is the daily nourishment to live a wholesome spiritual life. Based on this belief, in 2011, she launched and developed the weekly radio talk show, Journey Into the Word with JP Olson Christian Radio Broadcast on 106.7 FM & 1670 AM in Madison WI at Midwest Broadcasting.
JP’s early commitment in her life to Christ has placed her on a journey which has allowed her to use her God-bestowed gifts as a vocalist in coordinating and conducting gospel music workshops, speaking engagements, teaching, and preaching throughout the United States and internationally. Her international tours include Japan, Singapore, India, Australia; Germany; Italy; Africa, France, New Zealand; Aruba, Cayman, Canada, Israel, Haiti, Mexico, Bahamas, Bali, and the Netherlands - Antilles (Curacao). JP firmly believes that God uses people, who are willing vessels, not only to listen to the still small voice, but to follow its lead.
J.P. Olson has been called by God’s grace to be not only a vocalist in singing praises to God but to be a prophetic vessel to the nations. She has been responsible for releasing the Word of God in her ministry and broadcast for the past 10 years. Her ministry brings a strong emphasis towards the call and duty as an intercessor/prayer warrior and watchman on the wall. She has become a spiritual advisor for many young ministers national and international. She has ministered to women, also prophetically speaking into the lives of leadership, empowerment, encouraging the call to prayer, while releasing strategies in the regions where they have ministered. On her mission, JP has used her gifts to lift, inspire, cheer, and bring hope to all with whom she comes in contact. This action-oriented servant has been most successful in using the instrument of her voice to bring together a fragmented world in perfect harmony.
She is the founder of Holy Spirit Revival & Harvest, after praying for a word, JP heard as God placed upon her heart in 2010 to have a revival. Listening to God’s call she prayed, fasted, and asked God for a time, a name, and a place. She sent requests around the world asking friends and believers to pray twice a day at specific times until the appointed time of the revival. Holy Spirit Revival & Harvest was conceived by JP Olson and on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, a six-day revival was held in Baraboo, Wisconsin. There were twelve anointed speakers of God during the revival, replete with preaching & teaching the Word of Jesus Christ. Many accepted Christ as their personal Savior and were baptized through immersion in the water. She continued to host these tent revivals through August 2019.
JP share these words from the lyrics of “Through It All” by Andréa Crouch: “I thank God for my mountains. I thank Him for my valleys. I thank Him for all He’s brought me through; for if I never had a problem, I wouldn’t know that God could solve them. I wouldn’t know what faith in God can do. Through it all I’ve learn to trust in Jesus. I’ve learned to trust in GOD. Through it all I’ve learn to depend upon His Word.”
She considers her ministry as God’s fulfillment of a broader mission to increase her effectiveness in His vineyard. Her heart is tender towards forever covering Israel with prayer. Her life focus is to serve and lend strength towards kingdom advancement including global evangelism within and without the walls of the church to fulfill the assignments that pertain to those who are in need and reaching the un-churched.
After attending 1 year of study at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa Oklahoma, she decided to pursue a career in the music industry which led her to tour nationally and internationally. Although her voice has been recorded over and over in song, she uses it to maximum effectiveness in speaking and singing for the Lord, in counseling those who, by unfortunate circumstances have fallen by the way. J.P. holds a bachelor’s degree in the field & study of Psychology from the University of Memphis. She has been “on the battlefield” even before her studies led her being awarded a degree in Psychology and has seen those who have tried to substitute the trappings of an affluent society for food for the soul. She has listened to the rich and famous, the up-and-coming, the down-and-out, the moaners and groaners, the rejected, and others on the bottom rung of society’s ladder tell her “Where it hurts” most. These have touched her humanity, challenged her faith walk, all of which have become openings or occasions for a new vision. She reminds herself daily of the words of Jesus “… for I was hungry, and you gave me food, I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink… (Matthew 25:35).
