There is no doubt that COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has already had a major impact on your life. The impact may change over the next month or more.

I wanted to take a moment to tell you how this is impacting Oak Forest Center, and what we are planning for in the months ahead.

While we can’t predict the future, we are open for retreats and conferences!  We are taking proper measures to provide a safe retreat and conference experience; our food service and housekeeping has been changed to meet guidelines.

In times like these, it is easy to give into fear, but I encourage you to use this time to draw near to God and increase your faith. This can be done through time in prayer and also in God’s word. We appreciate the calls and e-mails we’ve received expressing concern and offering prayer for the ministry. Keep praying as we continue to do our best to help advance God’s Kingdom in difficult times.

We have experienced a significant loss of income and are praying for people to step forward and provide financial assistance.  If you are moved to help, please see the Donate section.

Thank you,
Mark Rieland
