John-and-Daryl-Oberg

John & Daryl Oberg
Advisors

John and Daryl Oberg founded Oasis Intl. Church (originally called Lord of the Harvest Church) in 1997. They pastored the church for ten years until John felt led to move to Ontario, Canada and purchase a fishing/hunting resort. John’s heart has always been to reach out to people in the marketplace setting. Before moving to Ontario, the Lord clearly confirmed that the mantle of pastoral leadership for the church was to be passed on to Cherish. John and Daryl now function in an advisory capacity for the church.
