After a year of searching for a Youth Pastor, God has led us to the man that we believe is the perfect one to lead our youth for this season at Oasis. He and his family will be coming on board with us the first week of November. Our staff team and lay leaders who have met him and his wife are confident he will be just what our teens and families need. After being a youth pastor myself for 10 years, I think I understand the tremendous influence you can be on youth and their families. After raising 3 boys, I also know the influence a church and youth leaders can have on young people during this very transitional time of life. We have taken a long time and looked at over 200 resumes and people to come to this point. Please pray for him and his family as they travel a long distance and make a big move from a different part of the country. Once they arrive, you will get to meet them and we feel confident you will fall in love with them. Watch for the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT when they arrive.
"RED COUCH" Nights! They began last night. For the next 4 Wednesday nights, we’ve got a hot topics relationship series taking place in our main auditorium. If you’re curious about relationships and how to make yours better, stop by for these nights! Tonia and I will be on the Red Couch one of the Wednesday nights. Scary thought!
"Spotlight" continues this weekend. Last week we launched our new Sermon Series with "Lion King" in the Spotlight. If you missed it, you need to go online and watch the message . You can do it at www.visitoasis.org/teachings.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, OASIS CHURCH! I believe one of the greatest measures of a healthy church spiritually is by her giving. Since Jesus said where your treasure is your heart is, it’s apparent Giving is a metric of spiritual health. Our new Ministry Year began in September. Our ministry budget is the biggest in Oasis Church History and our Pines Campus met our budget the first month. We are on track to do so again in October. (The North Miami Campus is not far behind.) That shows that you as individual members of the local body have put your Treasure where God has told you too. His church. Thank you so much Oasis.
LOVE CITIES, LOVE PASTORS, OASIS BEACH HOUSE OPEN HOUSE IS THIS WEEK. If you are giving toward our special offering toward this you should have received the personal invite for one of the Open House nights this coming week. You should have received your invite and will be receiving an email from me in the next day or two with all the details of the Open house. I can't wait to show you this incredible future Pastoral Retreat and Beach Campus on Hollywood Beach. I hope you will drop in. If you have not yet begun to support this far-reaching and largest Missions Project in our history, you can go to our website right now and find out all about Love Cities, Love Pastors and even Pledge your support and begin to give to this 20/20 Mission Project. It’s exciting. If you are giving and made a pledge and for some reason have not received the personal invite from me, please email us and let us know or call our office.
Have a great weekend and I am so excited as we Shine the Spotlight on God’s word and His plan for our lives once again this weekend at Oasis Church.
