Oakwood has started a new College Ministry under the leadership of Pastor Ben Elliott. Ben is working to get this new ministry going and more information will be posted online soon. If you are a college student (or are a parent with college-age students), please contact Pastor Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and get connected.
Ben joined the Oakwood team in March of 2019 as Youth Pastor. His passion is to make disciples of the next generation and see the lives of students transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. Ben earned a B.S. in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Ministry from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has devoted the last five years to learning and developing the skills necessary to minister to students and families in a variety of contexts. He enjoys video production, going to the gym, and watching a good movie.
Ben is excited to be marrying his high school sweetheart, Kyleigh, in June of 2019!
