Biography: Timothy Loewen-Elofson has been working in youth ministry for eight years. Prior to joining LAUMC, he and his wife, Olivia, lived just outside of Sacramento for two years after getting married in October 2021. A native of New England, he loves the outdoors, but decided after experiencing eighteen years’ worth of winters to move out west to avoid the snow. During down time, Timothy is an enjoyer of all sorts of games–from board and card games to tabletop, cooking, and finding new places to eat around town. Olivia, on the other hand, loves all things movies and music and travelling. They both are avid bookworms. Timothy earned his MDiv from Emory University where he was a Woodruff Scholar, and a Bachelor of Arts in Youth Ministry and the Humanities from Azusa Pacific University. Olivia earned her Bachelor of the Arts in Theater and the Humanities from Azusa Pacific University.
