Our story

Our story began with a dream birthed in the hearts of a couple in 1946. They would not give up until they planted a church near the University in Springfield and reached out to students and people of all ages.

Today, the dream is still alive at Oak Grove and we continue to reach out to students and every age group of people. Our inter-generational church has grown from merely a church plant to a now thriving, active church in the Springfield area. God is not finished with Oak Grove yet! We invite you to join our spirit-filled services and experience the love of God with us! The best is yet to come….
