Capital Campaign 2017 – 2020


Much has changed over the history of Oakwood Community Church. What hasn’t changed are the countless prayers, sacrificial giving of time and resources and a commitment to the gospel message.

Today, Oakwood has the privilege to minister to the growing population of Waconia and the surrounding area.  As we continue to establish our roots, we desire to have a greater spiritual reach.   Our roots allow us to reach out to the community, encourage christ-like maturity, equip people for ministry and extend God’s kingdom. So we celebrate our past while anticipating the future that God has for Oakwood. 

Reaching Out

Everyone is invited to prayerfully join the Rooted to Reach Out capital campaign journey as we seek to raise $600,000 over the next 3 years to pay down our mortgage debt.

The advancement of the gospel and the growth of the ministry of Oakwood Community Church is fueled by sacrificial giving. We are asking for you to prayerfully consider what God is calling you to do. Consider stepping out in faith and helping us extend our reach.

Our financial goal is God-sized and we must seek His help through prayer.

Note from Pastor Jon

We are about to embark on an exciting adventure called Rooted to Reach Out. I am praying this journey will leave a positive spiritual legacy for generations to come. This capital campaign is much more than a fundraiser. I trust this will be a spiritual journey in which we each will partner with God to see Him accomplish a God-sized goal.

From my first visit with the people of Oakwood Church I’ve sensed that God had brought together a body of believers to have a significant spiritual impact on this community. I have seen that desire in action over my short time at Oakwood and was reminded of that pattern as I read through the beautiful history of this church. God has been so faithful and the people of Oakwood have been obedient. Oakwood has deep spiritual roots. Most of all, we want to keep establishing roots in the desire to reach out with the message of the gospel. I am excited to see what God will do through us as we move into this next season of ministry.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by the streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. – Psalm 1:1-3
