Derek Olsen is the Lead Pastor. He has spent his last 15 years working with teens and families and helping them live and serve together. What he loves best about Revive is watching families grow together in ministry. When not spending his free time with his family or at the Y, he can be seen watching nearly every sport on TV. Derek met his wife, Amanda, in college and they have 4 kids, Isaac, Halee, Rylee and Jacie.
Worship Arts Pastor
Prior to assuming his role as Worship Arts Pastor at Revive Christian Church, Rafael Caudillo worked as a student minister and was actively involved in church ministry as a worship leader, small group leader, young adult ministry coordinator, and guest speaker. He has since developed and passionately been leading a vision to shape others’ lives-of-worship through music and art.
Rafael has passions for Jesus, his neighbors, a good cup of coffee from Boneshaker Coffee Co., all things Marvel Comics related, communicating the urgency of the Gospel, and telling the stories of people who are being dramatically changed by Jesus. Rafael resides in Central Bismarck with his wife, Tabitha, and their insanely hyper dog, Bolton (“Bolt” for short). Rafael is honored to have the privilege to help lead Revive wherever God calls it to go.
Amanda Olsen is the Communication Director. She feels blessed to be a stay at home mom to her son and 3 daughters. She enjoys most things that call for creativity and wishes she could enjoy them more often. Her favorite thing about Revive and Motherhood is that the rewards are eternal and beyond anything she could have created on her own.
