Partnering Ministries

Missions at Oakland

At Oakland, we are always looking for ways to connect people to the life-changing presence of Jesus Christ, whether locally in our own backyard or overseas. Everything we do must pass this simple 2-way test:

  1. Does it help people get better connected to each other?
  2. Does it help people get better connected to God?
