As a United Methodist Church, Oak Grove’s structure is based on The Book of Discipline. Oak Grove’s governance is representative and church members elect people to manage the temporal and spiritual affairs of the congregation. The Charge Conference is the highest governing body of the Church. The Board of Stewards meets monthly and serves as the executive agency of the Charge Conference which typically happens in the fall.
