LEADERSHIP

STAFF

Jeff Ramsey

Pastor

I actually grew up in a church plant as a kid, but when I moved to North Carolina, wanted nothing to do with the one church-plant I knew about here.  God, through many circumstances only he could orchestrate, changed my mind on all of this.  That church plant – Hope Community Church – really changed my life.  And as a part of my involvement there, we started a ministry called ‘hungry?’ seeking to reach the next generation with the gospel.  Eventually, we felt like the best way to accomplish what God had called us to was to plant a church, and hence, Oak City Church was born.

Sam Edwards

Children and Family Ministries Director

Connections Director

To me, the gospel means hope.  It means that no matter how screwed up I am on the inside, no matter how screwed up the world is, God has not left us.  In fact, not only has he not left us, he has provided means by which we can be redeemed and restored.  And that I get to share that message of redemption and restoration and hope with others…well…there’s hope in that!   That’s good news!

Jake Taylor

Worship Pastor

Jake has been a member of Oak City Church for 10 years. He recently joined the staff as the worship pastor. Bio is coming soon!

Tiffany Olsen

Communications Director

Tiffany grew up just outside of Raleigh, and graduated with a Mass Communication degree from Campbell University. After moving back to the area in 2010, Oak City was the first church she visited, and knew right away it was home. She is married to Ben, and the mother of Isabelle and Evangeline. Though she may seem quiet at first, she will gladly talk at length about current events, whatever podcast she is bingeing, and the finer details of her favorite TV shows and books.

Ken Cantrell

My wife, Mika, and I married on Jan 1, 1994 — January 1st means I have no excuse to forget the anniversary date. We have two kids, Gabriel (born in 2002) and Nicole (born in 2000). Nicole desperately wants a horse, but we’ve settled for two cats.

Nate Anderson

I’m a Raleigh transplant from the great state of Oregon, but came to Raleigh to marry my wife, Megan. We’ve been at Oak City from the start and have added three girls to our mix since — Grace, Ella, and Molly. I’m passionate about evangelism and seeing people’s lives transformed because of the power of the Gospel.
