The Sports and Fitness Ministry at Oakwood exists to connect people to Jesus and one another in an environment that fosters relationships and builds community.
The Oakwood Activity Center (OAC) is a 47,000 square foot facility that features: a regulation-sized gymnasium, two full-sized racquetball courts, walking/jogging track, free-weight room, cybex cardio room, cybex machine-weight room, aerobics room, theatre room, dining room, commercial kitchen, numerous classrooms & meeting rooms, a cafe' & commons area, and men's and women's locker rooms.
As a ministry of Oakwood Christian Church, the OAC operates on the premise of 1 Timothy 1:9 which says, "Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come."
If we are not our own, and truly temples of the Holy Spirit, then it is imperative to take care of our spiritual life first, and then also take care of our physical health. The two can work hand-in-hand to strengthen us to be the people God wants us to be as well as the people that he uses to further His kingdom.
When you come to the OAC you can expect to be greated with a friendly smile, a loving environment, and a servant attitude. Whether you are using a fitness room, running on the track, or just kicking back with a coffee, we want you to experience a safe and loving environment where Christ is at the center.
