#1 – I believe the potential for oasis to do good and have a positive impact in in our community is greater than it has ever been.
#2 – I believe that some of the BEST leaders of our church are currently in elementary, middle and high school. Therefore, kids & teen ministry is our GREATEST opportunity right now.
#3 – I believe the key to a healthy church is healthy leadership…our leaders cannot run at the pace of a cheetah and still be responsive to the gentle “nudging” of the Holy Spirit.
#4 – I believe we are in a season where ALL of our leaders need to take the advice God gave us in Hebrews 12:12, and ask for a FRESH dose of passion for our ministry. If we do this, we will see breakthroughs like we’ve NEVER seen before.
#5 – I believe we have some of the most inclusive, gracious, & LOVING people on the PLANET. I wouldn’t be shy to invite ANY of my friends to check out this church.
#6 – I believe in the past 6 months, we have experienced a good ol’ fashioned “pruning.” Not an easy thing, but not a bad thing either. Do you know what comes after a pruning? Growth & Harvest.
#7 – I believe God is raising up a church planter among us, & in a couple of years we will be coordinating an “oasis church” plant in another zip code somewhere.
#8 – I believe we haven’t even scratched the surface in regards to all Jesus wants to do in and through us. Our BEST days really are in front of us!
