Brief Church Profile
When Mr. Moses A. Ticker came back home in 1985, he observed that only he and his family were Christians living in our village at that time. On Christmas day of 1987 he sent an invitation to all the Christians in the surrounding villages to a party. Thereby we organized a fellowship and decided to hold church services by turn in all the villages concerned.
One Sunday in 1989. Mr. Joe Genda Bassie, a member of the Lutheran Church at that time, visited our Church and advised us to join the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone.
In this regard, we wrote an application to the church and the application was approved. Thereafter in 1989 our congregation was recognized as the Mount Olives Lutheran Church with center at Sahan village in the Tamdale Chiefdom. In 1992 the church appointed Moses A. Ticker to become the Evangelist. Over the years, three churches have been built; the first one was broken by the rebels during the war and the other abandoned because of the society bush nearby, and finally the last one is built on land belonging to Mount Olives Church.
