Well, just thought we would check in and let folks know what’s going on at Oasis. It’s been 5 weeks since going to two locations, just 4 days short of us turning 3 years old, and the LORD has really blessed us! It’s not easy taking a portion of a young church, and planting it 25 minutes away in a totally different venue. Yet, due to His grace and the prayers and hard work of our young Service Teams, we are gaining traction and making strides every week. It’s hard enough for a young church to put together one TOTALLY LIVE contemporary church service, but 2? I’m really proud of these people!
A Faith Stretching Vision
We could have just played it safe and stayed comfortable at our previous one in Scotch Plains, but our vision has always been to multiply leaders and church sites very quickly. Although we are short on funds and in need of more volunteers in some key areas (like a few more guitarists & bass players, so if you are out there let us know?), we would have it no other way. Our Leadership Team’s view on vision is simple:
1) We never allow finances or fear of failure to dictate vision
2) Our church vision should be so large that it should only be attainable through divine intervention
3) If God is in it, He will provide everything we need.
