Pastor Eric and Sister Olson
Eric Olson has been pastor of Cornerstone Church of Hudson since its inception in 2004. He began his Christian service as a lay minister in 1991 at First Pentecostal Church. As a non-traditional student, Eric completed his theological training through distance education, intensive short term classroom sessions, direct tutoring, and internship. While fulfilling his educational requirements, Eric became focused on the doctrines of first century Christianity.
After serving as interim pastor, and upon receiving his ministerial accreditation through the United Pentecostal Church International in 1995, he became pastor of First Pentecostal Church and served the church for nearly ten years. As a result of his research into first century doctrines and having recognized an opportunity in the Hudson community, Eric facilitated radical changes at First Pentecostal Church. An emphasis upon authentic Christianity and biblical doctrines led to the formation of a new congregation. On October 31st 2004, First Pentecostal Church closed its doors. In May of 2007, after considerable renovations to an early 1900s building, Cornerstone Church of Hudson opened its doors to the community. Eric now serves as Cornerstone’s Senior Pastor.
