Using your gifts

Small acts of service. Big impact on others.


Plug in at oakwood

We believe that the church is not a building or a leader, rather it's the body of people. We wouldn't be Oakwood without those who use their gifts to glorify God. And we love to see people use their gifts to serve our church family and the community. There are many ways to use your skills through Oakwood. 

If you have other gifts to use than what's listed below, reach out to Nate Stenholtz and we'll find a place for you.
