who we are
Oak Ridge was established in October of 1917. In God’s sovereignty, the church has remained and we are looking forward to how the Lord will continue to use ORBC. Our mission statement is "Rooted in God's Word and branching out to share the Gospel". Our goal is to direct everyone to Christ first and to glorify the Lord in all that we do.
We are a body of believers who desire to have Christ centered worship and worshipers who want to take the Gospel to the nations. We believe this begins with discipling families and individuals through expository preaching and teaching.
We are blessed to have leaders for our youth, elementary, and pre-school age children. These groups meet each Wednesday evening during the Bible study hour for adults. We also have leaders for the Sunday School hour for all ages. During Sunday service time, we have a nursery and Children's Church. Nursery ministry is for infants and toddlers. Children’s Church is for kids ages 2- kindergarten. These ministries are kept by individuals who want to serve the church so parents can engage in worship.
We look forward to seeing you and your family soon!
Pastor Robert & his family
Pastor Robert is the elder over teaching and preaching at ORBC. He is married to Jennifer and they have two beautiful daughters, Selah Faith and Micah Joy. Robert has served in pastoral ministry since 2012 and has been at Oak Ridge since June 2019. He believes that expository preaching and the desire to reach the nations with the Gospel should be the heartbeat of the undershepherd. The undershepherd is governed by scripture; it is the overflow in our discipleship and the reflection of His Glory.
Scarlett Rumburg is our office administrator. She is married to Stephen Rumburg and they have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. She teaches Sunday School and AWANA weekly. Scarlett is also a gardener, she loves to work in their greenhouse. She and her husband have a passion for missions and are very thankful for the opportunities the Lord has given them to serve Him.
