Greetings from Riverside!
We are just finishing up our second week with campers here for the Summer and God is on the move in exciting ways! Speaking of exciting news, it is with excitement that we announce that Lute Olson will be stepping into the role of Program Coordinator beginning September 6! Lute has been around the ministry of Riverside for many years: as a camper, as a Junior Counselor, Senior Counselor, Discipleship Team member, Summer Maintenance, and most recently as our Associate Program Coordinator. Lute brings a strong passion for sharing the Gospel with everyone he encounters, strong leadership and care for staff, and in all things he desires to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to all in and out of the camp setting. Lute just recently married his wife, Megan, on June 16, and they live in Story City. We look forward to seeing the Lord use Lute in this new role to continue our strong Christ centered programming at Riverside!
With Lute stepping into this role, we are opening up the application process for our next Associate Program Coordinator. Below you will find a pdf copy of the official job posting. If you or someone you know are interested in applying for this position, you may submit a resume and cover letter to Riverside, with attention to Chris Dahl. If you have any questions about this process, you may email or call Chris at
Thank you for joining Riverside in prayer during this time of transition! God bless you!
