Care Strategy Strategic Objectives
Our desire at The Oaks is to be intentional in our missions process. We want to go deeper in specific areas so that we can see long-term transformation in the lives of the people we are partnering with. We believe that through these focused objectives, we will have a greater impact and be better stewards of the finances that are given toward our missional endeavors.
The areas that we feel God has directed our missions efforts both locally and globally are:
1. Orphan Care
2. Church Planting
3. Next Generation Impact
4. Community Transformation
Rooted Foster/Adoptive Ministry
Rooted is our foster and adoption ministry that we have at The Oaks. In 2009, God began to direct our hearts to the cause of the fatherless. There are over 140,000,000 orphans world-wide, and we believe the church is the answer to this problem. We are raising awareness and resources to come alongside foster and adoptive parents in order to impact the lives of these children.
Our philosophy of ministry as a church is to not do for people, but to partner with people. We partner with over 40 amazing non-profit organizations in Ellis County that help to serve our local community through food distribution, shelter for women in crisis, mentoring students, and so much more. To see a list of those partners and to get plugged in, click here.
We have partnered with some of the best organizations in the world. Our goal is to not only bring aid to developing countries around the world, but to help specific communities discover what their natural resources and assets are, so that they can create sustainable models of economic and spiritual development. One of our strategies with our global partners is to take mission trips each year to the areas where we are affecting change.

What kind of an impact can we have when we practice generosity? Maybe, we could save a child’s life by building a bridge in El Salvador so they don’t have to walk through the flood waters on their way to school each day. We could bring the story of the gospel to a teenager in Russia that has never heard the name of Jesus before. We could provide food and education to a Burmese refugee child in Thailand.
