Who We Are

As a Church

Oak Tree is a church family that is growing in the Franklin area of Elk Grove. It is made up of families from all walks of life – singles, traditional families, single parents, blended families, and seniors. Relationships with one another are vital to the life of our church. Throughout the week, friends meet with each other in growth groups to enrich and encourage each other. On Sundays, we meet at Franklin High School to worship and discover the truth in God’s word.

We are a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church. The music is uplifting, the fellowship nourishing, and the messages encouraging.  Leave with your spirits lifted and your burdens lightened – you will be motivated and inspired for today and tomorrow. Come as you are and enjoy Oak Tree’s comfortable and casual atmosphere.

Our Staff

Stephen Steele – Senior Pastor

Steve came to Oak Tree with 10 years of experience in youth ministry, and man, does it show. Steve is the senior servant leader and primary teaching pastor at Oak Tree. He loves God, his wife – Nicole, three daughters – Elizabeth, Rebekah, and Hannah, and Diet Pepsi (in that order). (He loves his daughters all the same, but you know what we mean.)

Rick Miller – Associate Pastor and Wearer of Many Hats

Rick comes to Oak Tree with over 20 years of youth ministry experience (trumping Pastor Steve).  And he has three reasons why he came to be a part of Oak Tree. (Just ask him!) Rick serves where he is needed most and solves any problems Pastor Steve cannot figure out.  Rick loves God, his wife – Brenda, his son – Jeremiah, his granddaughter – McKenzie, and his BMW motorcycle (in that order).
