Mount Olivet Lutheran Church

A nonprofit organization

For more than a century, Mount Olivet Lutheran Church has been the spiritual home for 15,000 people of all ages. Its ministries reach well beyond its walls.

Gifts may be designated for programs and ministry sponsored by Mount Olivet Lutheran Church or the Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center.

Mount Olivet Lutheran Church

Known for its traditional worship services and innovative programming for adults and children, Mount Olivet Lutheran Church has served the Minneapolis and west suburban area for more than a century.  Its dynamic congregation and leadership continue the tradition of compassion and excellence in Christian ministry today. 

Mount Olivet serves the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul and the surrounding metro area  through two church campuses - in Minneapolis and Victoria - and six affiliated ministries: Cathedral of the Pines Camp in Lutsen, Mount Olivet Home, Mount Olivet Careview Home, Mount Olivet Day Services  in south Minneapolis, the Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center near Farmington and Mount Olivet Rolling Acres, near Victoria. These organizations are separate incorporated nonprofits serving children, seniors, and people with intellectual liabilities. 

Since its founding in 1920, Mount Olivet has focused its energies on Christian fellowship and inspired worship services, within and beyond the Christian community - making a positive impact in its neighborhood, the state of Minnesota, and throughout the world. Your gift will help us continue that tradition for the next century.

Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center

Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center offers modern retreat facilities in a peaceful natural environment perfect for social interaction, study, and reflection. Amid the rolling prairies and woodlands of its 150-acre campus, visitors can both relax and cultivate their spiritual and intellectual growth. It is the ideal place to escape the noise and distractions of daily life, yet we are located just 45 minutes from downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, just south of Lakeville in Eureka Township.

The professional staff at Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center provides gracious hospitality, careful planning, and flawless execution to ensure the success of your retreat or conference. Our accommodations and amenities will foster a comfortable, productive, and memorable visit, whether you come for a one-day meeting or overnight event. We welcome groups and individuals from all faiths, not-for-profit organizations, and educational institutions.

We invite you to discover all the ways Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center can offer you a rewarding experience  and ask that if you value its services, will you generously support the mission! 

Thank you so very much!
