After 35 years, our beloved Pastor has retired. His leadership has been a huge part in shaping our church community and we express our deepest gratitude for his tireless dedication, wisdom, and compassion. Our church will continue to be a pillar of strength for our community, providing a space for worship, fellowship, and support.

The coming months will be a period of adjustment for our congregation, but our commitment to serving the community, fostering inclusivity, and spreading the message of love & compassion will continue. We invite you to join us in supporting one another during this time, as we continue to grow together as a resilient and compassionate community.

Meet the staff

Worship Director
Hey! I have served as the Worship Director at Great Oak since 2016. I have an Associate of Science degree in Liberal Arts from Grace College and I'm currently working on a bachelor’s degree in ministry leadership. I have a great love for the local church and leading others in discovering life in Christ through worship, small group ministry, and biblical hospitality. My husband, Drew, & I have been married since 2007 and we have five awesome kids.


Director of Youth Ministry
Hi, I’m Rodney!  I was raised in church, but it wasn’t until my teenage years that I truly made my faith my own. I have spent several years working with youth, children, and young adults in a variety of ministry settings. As the Director of Youth, my goal is to create a safe, welcoming, and fun environment where teens can explore their faith, ask tough questions, and build deep relationships with God and each other. I believe that every young person has unique gifts and talents that God wants to use for His kingdom, and I’m passionate about helping them discover and develop those gifts. My hope is that every student who comes through our doors will feel seen, heard, and loved. When I’m not at church, you can usually find me spending time with my wife, playing video games/card games with friends, or at your local disc golf course!


Office Administrator
Welcome! My family and I have been attending Great Oak since 2003, and I have been on staff since October 2007. I love being part of a local church community and am grateful for the opportunity to provide administrative support for the ministry. I'm a fan of medium roast coffee and dark chocolate, Colts football, and spending time with family and friends.
