To help achieve Oakdale's Wildly Important Goal—sending out 1,200 disciple-makers by December 31, 2022—we've created experiences and environments to help you not only grow in your personal relationship with Jesus but also reproduce disciples. There are many good options out there, but we feel these are the best for what God has called us to do: make disciple-making disciples.
Oakdale's Discipleship Path includes the following six steps:
Oakdale 5: Take 5 minutes to learn about Oakdale Church, find out how to connect with us, and identify your next step of faith. You can find us after each worship service in the lobby at the tables with balloons!
DIG IN: Discover what it means to make a first-time or renewed commitment to Christ, grow as a disciple, and partner in Oakdale's process of disciple-making. We invite and encourage everyone to attend DIG IN. For those interested in partnering with us (i.e. becoming a member of Oakdale Church), DIG IN is the step that fulfills that requirement. To register for an upcoming DIG IN, click here.
Rooted: Experience a short-term small group to help you deepen your faith, live out the daily habits of discipleship, and share your story. No matter where you are in your journey as a disciple, we believe you will grow here. To register for our next session, click here.
Thrive: Be part of a Discovery Group (DG) where you are growing in obedience by living out what you are learning, practicing authenticity and mutual accountability, and celebrating victories. Learn more about Disciple Making. Start a Discovery Group.
Branch Out: Receive training and then train other believers to go out and serve non-believers, identify spiritually hungry people, and invite them to start Discovery Groups, which you may facilitate initially. To learn more, email us.
Harvest: Partner with the Holy Spirit, through extraordinary prayer and coaching, to help believers, leaders, groups, and churches multiply to the third and fourth generations and beyond. To learn more, email us.
