Information about the Church: 


Dear Potential Worship Pastor,


Our mission at Oak Hill is simple. We want Jesus to be the focus. It’s really all about him. Therefore, we strive to do 3 main things:
We want to KNOW Christ personally, GROW in Christ as a family, and SOW Christ locally and globally for the glory of God.
That’s why we’re here. That’s what motivates us each day as we live on mission with God. We want to be a Jesus-centered, grace-filled, gospel-transforming church.

Over the last few years we have seen God do great things in our church and community. Many people have given their lives to Jesus and have joined our church family. Wednesday night andSunday morning activities (along with Bible studies and small groups) are busy and growing as both children and adults mature in their relationship with Christ and fellowship with one another.

Our sanctuary is packed most Sundays, with an average attendance of 275, and many more at Easter and Christmas services (showing the potential of how many people call Oak Hill their “home” church). Because of this growth, Oak Hill is also in the process of significantly expanding our building through a major remodel of classroom and office space. In all this we are grateful and humbled to be part of what God is doing for his glory here in Humboldt and beyond.


It is our conviction that worshipping the Lord through song is a major characteristic of a healthy church. In the fight of faith, we are to raise our voices together in song, using music to remind one another of the truth of the gospel and praising the Lord for his great love and mercy.

We’re excited about the opportunity to have a full-time Worship Pastor to help lead a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled worship service at Oak Hill. We are grateful for the time and energy volunteers have given to lead the music ministry at Oak Hill, and are excited to partner with a gifted leader and pastor who can help our church grow even more in this area.
Oak Hill is located in Humboldt, Iowa, a town of about 5,000 people.

Exciting times are ahead. We look forward to the possibility of having you join us as we make much of Jesus in the years to come.


By His Grace,
Doug Wolter, Senior Pastor
Josh Koehn, Associate Pastor
