Oakwood was honored by the Discipleship Ministries Agency of the United Methodist Church on the first night of the 2015 MN Annual Conference. Melanie Gordon of Discipleship Ministries presented Council Chair Kevin Blank and Pastor Ric Jacobsen with the first annual 'ONE MATTERS' Award for Oakwood's significant work of making disciples of Jesus for the transformation of the world; increasing baptisms and professions of faith
Growing the Kingdom:
With grant funds from the United Methodist Church-School initiative, Oakwood helped the New Ulm Ministerial Association bring Dignity Revolution and speakers Deb Tackmann (speaking to teachers) and Bob Lenz (holding 6 school assemblies and two faith rallies) to our region the first week of October 2015. The response from youth who chose to receive Christ at these events was overwhelming and a blessing for the entire community.
