Hello Oakwood Family,
WE HAVE A YOUTH PASTOR!!!!
It's with great joy that I can inform you of the appointment of Ben Elliott to the position of Oakwood Community Church Youth Pastor. Thank you for your prayers and support as we've walked through this process!
This is an answer to many prayers, and I am filled with deep gratitude for God’s guidance and direction through this search process. Ben will be supported by an awesome church staff, an amazing community of youth ministry leaders and caring parents. I can't wait for more of you to meet him and see his heart for students and their families, his desire to belong in this new church family, and his heart for the Jesus we all love and seek to follow.
Here's what's next:
Ben will officially start March 1st. He will be at the services on March 3rd. He will be looking for housing and connecting with leaders and students throughout these coming weeks in preparation for his official start.
Again, thank you for your prayers, patience, and unity as we've waited for the Lord to fill this crucial ministry role!
Rev. Don Jackson
