“A BRUISED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK, AND A SMOLDERING WICK HE WILL NOT SNUFF OUT. IN FAITHFULNESS HE WILL BRING FORTH JUSTICE; HE WILL NOT FALTER OR BE DISCOURAGED TILL HE ESTABLISHES JUSTICE ON EARTH. IN HIS TEACHING THE ISLANDS WILL PUT THEIR HOPE.”
“I, THE LORD, HAVE CALLED YOU IN RIGHTEOUSNESS; I WILL TAKE HOLD OF YOUR HAND. I WILL KEEP YOU AND WILL MAKE YOU TO BE A COVENANT FOR THE PEOPLE AND A LIGHT FOR THE GENTILES, TO OPEN EYES THAT ARE BLIND, TO FREE CAPTIVES FROM PRISON AND TO RELEASE FROM THE DUNGEON THOSE WHO SIT IN DARKNESS.”
ISAIAH 42:3-4, 6-7
Oaks of Righteousness serves as a school where no child or youth will ever be turned away; where every child and youth that desires to learn will have the opportunity to be equipped in a skill or trade that will benefit him/her in the future. A place where they can come to understand grace and forgiveness in an environment of godly discipline, patience and love. A place where they will feel safe and free to become the person God wants them to become. A place that will fuel their desire to come to know Jesus Christ personally and experience healing from the Great Healer.
The vision for this ministry is to reach out to children and teens who struggle with self worth, anger issues, abuse, drugs, alcohol, unhealthy relationships, etc, with God’s love.
a place like home
We call the ministry a ‘school’, which is why parents choose to send their sons/daughters there, but it‘s much more of a ‘home’ than a school. There are currently 8 students attending. They arrive at the school at 8:30 am and leave at 2 pm; Monday through Friday. While at school, they are learning Math and Spanish, Arts and Crafts, Basic Mechanics, Cooking/Baking, Guitar, Sports, and most importantly, the Bible. The kids are also encouraged to get out of their comfort zones by participating in dramas, singing, and serving people in the community. We definitely appreciate your prayers for this ministry and we are excited to see where God will take this.
