Life Change Central (LCC) is primary way we reach out to the community. It was born out of a vision from the Lord to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our community. As we have prayed and worked over the past few years, this ministry has grown into a great outreach tool to change lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ. LCC consist of 3 ministries and 2 partnerships. Contact Pastor Bryan at to get involved.
OHBC Food Pantry
The food pantry is located at our LCC Campus (5122 N. Fares Ave.) It is open the 2nd and 3rd Saturday each month from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. We give clients a three-day food supply along with some personal care items. We also provide a worship service and one-on-one spiritual counseling with each client. Clients need to bring valid state ID and SSI number for themselves and SSI number and DOB for all dependents living in the house.

Charis House Ministry
In 2011 Oakhill was given a home which we renovated. We use it to help people in a difficult time of life. We allow them to live in the house for up to 12 month to get back on their feet. We have a team that intricately works with them in all areas of life.
The Health Ministry promotes health and well-being in our church and community. They take blood pressure at the food pantry each week along with sponsoring health related events like the annual Kids Health and Safety Fair, and Red Cross Blood Drive.
State Hospital Ministry
The state hospital is one of the oldest outreach ministries of Oakhill. The second Saturday of each month a group from our church will visit patients at the State Hospital. They play games, sings songs, and visit. Some of these patients see little family throughout the year and love the company we bring. You must be 18 years or older to participate in this ministry.
Academy for Innovative Studies Partnership
For a couple of years now Oakhill has supported AIS. We now work specifically with the AIS on 1st Ave. AIS is a school where students that have a hard time either socially, behaviorally, or academically can go and try to better themselves through education. We provide support for the school, teachers, and students. Currently we drive students to the clothing bank on Thursday morning. We also help with special events. We encourage the teachers once a month with prayer and small gifts.
