There are many transitions happening at Oak Grove. As part of that we have assembled a Transition Team to guide us through the process.

Transition Team Highlights from February 20 and March 11

  • All team members present at both meetings

  • Pastor Lee outlined the Interim Time as ideally a God-given time of reflection. It is an unhurried process in which the congregation has the opportunity to:

    1. Help one another heal​

    2. Look at itself ( Who are we? ) What is our reason for being? What is God calling the congregation to be about for God?

    3. Gather data

    4. Prepare the Ministry Site Profile

    5. Prepare for a new or renewed vision and new leadership

  • Key work the Transition Team will focus on:​

    • Listen and gather feelings​

    • Help the congregation be ready to be at the best place we can be when we welcome the new pastor

    • Update the congregational membership

    • Increase transparency by ensuring that the congregation is kept appraised of the process and what is coming next

    • Communication​

  • Making plans for the Church Assessment Tool that will take place May 5 through June 2​
