Oasis Christian Fellowship was officially incorporated on 11 September 2008 and had our official inauguration service on 12 October 2008. Today, 11 Sep 2021, we celebrate our 13th anniversary!
I am thankfully amazed that the Lord has sustained us. The years since we formed have not always been exciting and may even have, at times, seemed mundane or aimless. (Micro-churches face different challenges from mid-sized or mega ones.) But the Lord has His way of coaxing and directing us back on track. Had it not been for His leading and empowerment, I have no doubt we would have shut down years ago. But it didn’t happen. Thanks be to God!
Over the years, different ones have joined us for a season and then left to go elsewhere in God’s kingdom. As a pastor, that has, perhaps been one of the tougher parts of my assignment even though I understand they had to do so. Even so, we’re still in touch with them and consider them “extended family”.
The past 2 years have, perhaps been the most challenging we’ve faced but perhaps the most productive too, especially as far as our online/digital presence is concerned. I’m close to completing recordings of our Romans series on video; our services have gone hybrid and we’re testing out live-streaming on FB and YouTube. All this has led to more people joining us for Sunday services – around 40% more have been attending online regularly. Again, I am thankfully amazed at what the Lord has done!
Before I go, I want to thank Almighty God for His unending love for OasisCF; Christ, our King, for His bountiful grace; and the Blessed Holy Spirit for divine cadence and empowerment. I also want to thank my fellow directors and members of this church. We’ve journeyed together for a while now and I am the richer for it!
And so I will end this post in the best way I know – by declaring, “To God be the glory for the things He has done!”
PS. On 12 Sep 21, we will be commemorating our 13th anniversary during our online service. Feel free to join us, even if it’s just to pray with us to be continually dedicated to the King’s purposes.
