Jan Shields, 

General Secretary


As General Secretary of Oakley Baptist Church as well as a church member, my motto is, “I love my people.”  I never thought that I would become a Church Secretary, but I did so by way of high school teacher and retail manager.  No job was ever quite the right fit until God brought me here, and now I am blessed to worship with the same people I get to serve on a daily basis.  My husband and I became members of Oakley Baptist Church in June of 2010, and this church has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. 

I enjoy the Choir and Children’s Ministries here, and feel that this is the first place that I have been allowed to “fan the flames” (2 Timothy 1:6) of the gifts that God has given me.  Please consider being our guest and becoming a part of our family…God is here in this church, and His love is in the hearts of His people here.  I can answer any questions that you might have or find the person who can.  I am very blessed to be Oakley, and my ministry is to help you become Oakley, too!

I am Oakley.
