Equipping and Empowering for Victorious Kingdom Living

About Mighty Oak Ministries


Mighty Oak

I founded Mighty Oak Ministries in 2003. I was writing, teaching, and speaking on such a wide variety of topics and needed a way to consolidate them under one umbrella. The common thread was equipping and empowering the Body of Christ. That’s at the root of all I do.

The Lord led me to Isaiah 61 and gave me the name Mighty Oak Ministries.

The name comes from Isaiah 61:3 where Isaiah says we are “great oaks of righteousness” (NLT). The word for oaks in Hebrew is ‘ayil which carries the idea of great, mighty, and strength. Scripture uses the same root for oaks and for leader or leading man. In other words, we are not to be just puny little trees, but great, mighty oaks of righteousness, a planting for the display of the Lord’s splendor. We are to be strong and mighty, and we are to reflect our Lord. That meaning informs every aspect of everything I do. My goal is to not only become a mighty oak of righteousness myself, but also to equip and empower others to become the same. Whether it’s biblical training, leadership training, healing, writing, parenting, or caregiving, I want to provide resources and encouragement to help you to grow into a splendid mighty oak of righteousness.

The Kingdom is My Target

Throughout my adult life, publishers told me to focus on one target audience. They wanted me to drop everything except the topic they wanted to publish. I can’t tell you how many times I took this to the Lord, complaining that unlike “everyone else,” I couldn’t find a focus. Repeatedly He would remind me that I’m not like everyone else. I have many interests and have become skilled in many areas.  The common denominator is the Kingdom.

YOU are My Tribe

My tribe is the anyone who is committed to furthering the Kingdom. To being the ecclesia, the church, the Body of Christ, for such a time as this. Because I believe we can “do church better.”

So I present to you, Mighty Oak Ministries, the eclectic ministry designed to equip and empower you to serve the Kingdom in a variety of areas. I’ve decided that since I am now in overtime (+70), my goal is to freely share the resources of a lifetime. The resources are here for you to use in your ministry or your personal life. Please honor my copyright and don’t share without attribution. And be sure to sign up for my occasional newsletter to stay in touch with what I’m doing now.

I love communicating with my readers, so feel free to use the contact page to ask questions or make comments.

Enjoy, and may God grow you into a mighty oak of righteousness, a planting for the display of His splendor” (Isaiah 61:3).
