Oakdale-Brookdale campus ministry is located at Brookdale Senior Living in Olney, Maryland and is led by Pastor Robin Axtell.  We provide a wonderful opportunity to connect with and minister to seniors through our worship services, Bible studies and care visits to support residents and their families in Montgomery county.  

Pastoral care, bible study and visits have been found to aid seniors in building a trusting relationship with someone outside of their daily caretakers and family. The residents often expressed this as having someone to talk to, a friend and companion that they can share their feelings with. Pastoral care is walking with and being with seniors in their times of need to promote their wellbeing and strengthen them in their faith.

If you have questions, feel free to contact, Pastor Robin Axtell,

Residential Visits

We visit and build relationships within the Brookdale Senior living community. We walk alongside the on-site residents and members to provide spiritual and emotional support. We are available to address faith-related issues around illness or end-of-life. Every person matters and our prayer is to provide hope, value and purpose in this stage of life.
