As a Church
Oak Tree is a church family that is growing here in the Laguna/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 small groups to enrich and encourage each other. Then, on Sundays we meet at Franklin High School to celebrate in worship, and discover the truth of God’s word.
We are a Bible believing, Bible teaching church. The music is uplifting, the fellowship nourishing and the messages are encouraging. Leave with your spirits lifted and your burdens lightened – you’ll be motivated and inspired for today and tomorrow. Come as you are and enjoy our comfortable and casual atmosphere.
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). (OK, he loves his daughters all the same, but you know what we mean.)
Rick Miller – 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. Currently, he leads our worship team, heads up youth ministry, and solves any problems Steve can’t figure out. Rick loves God, his wife – Brenda, his son – Jeremiah, and his BMW motorcycle (in that order).
Kathy Imboden – Children’s Pastor
Kathy was never in youth ministry, but all of her sons have served there, so she’s cool, too. Kathy and her husband, John, have a passion for kids and so do we at Oak Tree. Kathy loves God, her husband – John, her sons – Zach, Josh, and Paul, and new daughters to the family – Anne and Carrie (in that order).
