GMF’s Stephen Olford Center was originally opened by Dr. Stephen Olford (1918-2004) in 1988 as a place to train pastors in expository preaching. GMF is committed to preserving Dr. Stephen Olford’s legacy, supporting Dr. David Olford as he continues to train pastors for ministry, and seeing our premier retreat center succeed at serving the spiritual needs of believers in the Mid-South.
