As a United Methodist Church, Oak Grove’s structure is based on The Book of Discipline. Like our country, our governance is representative. We elect people to manage the temporal and spiritual affairs of the congregation. The Charge Conference is the highest governing body of the Church. The Church Council meets monthly and serves as the executive agency of the Charge Conference which typically happens in the fall.
The church has four major administrative committees:
Finance Committee (stewardship, finances, budget)
Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPR) (personnel)
Nominations Committee (recommends elected leaders for the church)
There are many ministry areas of the church. They are grouped under broad program ministry areas of:
Weekday Ministries (YCS CDC)
These groups provide the heart and soul of ministry at Oak Grove.
If you are interested in serving in leadership at Oak Grove, please contact Glenn Ethridge, 404-636-7558 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Most leadership positions are filled in the fall for the following calendar year.
