Gentle & Lowly
Christians know and treasure what Christ has done for them – but we might not know as much about who Jesus actually is. Pastor Dane Ortlund has written a short and powerful book about Jesus that became an instant classic – because it focuses on who Jesus is. Leaning into the short phrase in Matt 11:29 "I am gentle and lowly in heart" (along with other helpful texts, and insights from various Puritans), Ortlund presents a timely and somewhat neglected look at the heart of Jesus. Using Ortlund’s book as a resource, this course is designed for your encouragement as we take a close and intimate look into the heart of our Savior.
Taught by Gary Yochum & Jeremy Sumners

This class is designed to equip God's people with biblical principles for Christian leadership so that they may effectively lead in the home, the church, and the community. As Christ's ambassadors, we are to make disciples in each of these three spheres of life. So, whether your calling is primarily in the workplace or the home, as an employer or employee, as a pastor or deacon; this class will help prepare you to faithfully lead those whom God has given you influence over. This class also serves as a prerequisite for anyone who aspires to serve in an official leadership capacity at Oak Park.

Following the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus, Luke tells us the story of the beginning of the Church and how the Gospel of Jesus Christ began to spread from a small group of disciples in Jerusalem to the epicenters of the 1st Century world. Join the story where Jesus’s earthly mission ends by digging into this study of the book of Acts with us!
Taught by Kirby O'Brien & Andrew Hirschy
