men's ministry at oakwood

The Men's Ministry at Oakwood Community Church exists to help men know Christ and grow in their faith. We do this through men's small group Bible studies, as well as occasional events, retreats and service projects.

My wife, Kim, and I have been attending Oakwood faithfully since 2008. We have been married since 1993 and have three wonderful children: Colton, Gabrielle and Noah. I have served on the missions committee and as deacon in years past and currently serve with the friendship team, tech team, men’s ministry and as an elder. I work as a CMM programmer and enjoy reading, writing, watching movies, going on dates with my wife and spending time with the kids. I hope to graduate from Moody Bible Institute with a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies in 2017.
