Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children training is a required pathway to ministry every three years for all who serve in youth and children's ministry. Additionally, we recommend that the whole Oak Grove community--members and those in our neighborhood--take this training because training everyone is the most effective tool to stop child sexual abuse.

We strongly encourage you to start get on the training pathway now so that as ministry opportunities arise, you are equipped to go serve! Register today at ogumc.org/news.
