Servant - Leadership

At Oak Hill Bible Church, Jesus is the Chief Leader and we strive to follow His direction above all (Eph. 1:22, 23). We also have a team of elders to accomplish the vision and provide spiritual direction to the ministries of Jesus's church as the New Testament prescribes (Titus 1:7, Acts 14:23, 1 Tim. 3:1-7). Our elders love God and His church and would love to come alongside you and/or your family and walk with you in the discipleship process.
