Our Leaders

The Oaks Community Church is
and Congregationally-responsible.

Jesus Christ is the head of the church, both locally and globally. Our leaders seek to follow Him in every action, word, and decision made for The Oaks. The pastors work under Jesus, taking responsibility for the spiritual growth and leadership of the church body through prayer, teaching, vision, and equipping. The Members carry out the mission of the gospel to Denver and the ends of the earth.

Advisory Board

The Oaks Community Church holds the conviction that God has designed his Church to flourish under the oversight and leadership of qualified men who serve in plurality. We are committed to developing a team of pastors from within our church. Until then our Lead Pastor is accountable to an outside Advisory Board.
