Pastors Geno and Shannon Olison moved to the Homewood-Flossmoor area from Champaign-Urbana, Illinois in June of 2009 to start the South Suburban Vineyard Church. Since that time, they, along with a fabulous team of individuals have been building a church from the ground up.
This means having a lot of fun, working hard and seeing lives changed, including their own. They have seen the church grow from meetings of 15 people to small groups to a Sunday morning church service.
Geno and Shannon have four sons, Joseph, Elijah, Joshua, and Ezekiel. It has been an exciting time of settling in to the community, adding to the family and growing a multicultural church in the south suburbs of Chicago.
