New Pastor at Oakwood Church
Jason Mehring, Oakwood Church

The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce recently stopped by Oakwood Church to welcome their new pastor.  Pastor Jason Mehring moved to New Ulm in July with his family, which includes his wife Kiana, their 18-month twin boys, and a baby girl on the way!  Jason and his wife are both from the Rochester area, but have been living in Kentucky where he was in the seminary.  Oakwood Church, previously called Oakwood United Methodist Church, recently rebranded themselves and their new slogan is Together We Are Oakwood.  Though they are still a Methodist church, Pastor Jason says they are run more like a non-denominational church.  They have been growing with younger families and will be beginning men’s and women’s groups soon.  Visit Oakwood Church at 1630 Oakwood Ave to learn more, or to meet Pastor Jason.  Welcome!
