“What a privilege it is to pastor a Mission minded Church like Oak Grove where folks are just plain ordinary and down-to-earth people who love God, his Church and their pastor”. “We have had some success in reaching the people of Saline County and my prayer is that God will stir our hearts to a greater height of service to him and to his Church in the future. We are excited about what God is doing and what he has to offer to those who are willing to follow his leadership”. “We invite you to come worship with us any time at Oak Grove”.
