Ok this past week @OasisChurchNJ we talked about Overcoming life’s obstacles thru Prayer. Just found this pic in my old IPhone so I have to share how amazing our God is! Back before Oasis-Church-NJ.com started we had no people, no building and no money, but we prayed & believed that Jesus would provide outrageous, audacious things for us as we took a faith filled risk to start a church from scratch.
So one day I was at my old job in Family Court and a stranger approached me. He said, “Man u look out of it. What’s wrong?” I said, “Oh, head is not here cause I’m thinking about what I really feel called to do.” When he asked what it was I felt called to, I told him that I felt God had called me start a church. He then answered and said, “Well where’s your building?” I told him we did not have a building but were trusting God that He would do something crazy amazing for us. He laughed and blurted out, “No Building! How are you going to have a church with no building? Well do you at least have people?”
A little embarrassed I told him we did not have any yet. He then laughed again at me and joked, “Let me get this straight. You have no building and NO people and you want to start a church? Well do you at least have money? Because without money you can’t do anything!” I replied back to him by saying, “Nope. Sorry I have no money either, but I’m trusting God to provide everything I need.” At this point this total stranger looks me in the eye and says, “I can help you with that last need. I’m executor of a trust fund that has to go to a non profit organization. Here’s my card, so just send me your info and I’ll get back you.”
Now nearly a year went by and I heard nothing from this dude. The vision for Oasis had not materialized during this period , and I was discouraged and tempted to quit, thinking that God simply did not want me to start a church….But just then an amazing turn of event happened! The stranger called me up out of the blue, and me to come pick up a check. This $90,000 check which u see is what he gave me to help start Oasis!
During this time Jesus also provided us a meeting place, and in September 2010, we officially launched as a new church! It’s been miracle after miracle at Oasis ever since! God has most recently provided us with a new meeting place for our new and growing church.
Oasis Church meets Sundays 10am at the Regal Hadley Cinema Stadium at 1000 Corporate Ct in South Plainfield; and Sundays 11am at the Gran Centurions at 440 Madison Hill Rd in Clark.
