Beyond all else, JP Olson credits the spiritual environment of her youth and adulthood as the propelling force in her life. 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, from Australia and New Zealand, to France other areas of Europe, and to the continent of Africa. 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.
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 as God wills.
JP Olson is an ordained minister with Impact Ministries International. JP states, "I am on purpose. I am right where God wants me to be. God has great plans for you. For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, "They are plans for good...to give you a future and a hope." [Jeremiah 29:11]
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 Saviour and were baptized through immersion in the water.
Because JP Olson 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, she developed the weekly talk show, Journey Into the Word with JP Olson. JP shares these words from the lyrics of Through It All by Andraè 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."
From childhood in Sunday School, Sunday worship services and Wednesday night prayer service, JP credits all in finding solace and inner peace. She considers her ministry as God's fulfillment of a broader mission to increase her effectiveness in His vineyard. With no reservation, she shares her gifts with other aspiring vocalists, via coaching, teaching vocal breathing techniques and control, as well as personal expression.
JP is a graduate of the University of Memphis. In 2009, she released her new book, Voices Out of the Box designed as a roadmap to guide its readers along the highway of proven and effective simple steps in preserving and protecting the voice in a healthy way.
