Dr. Tim Sheets is an Apostle, Pastor, and Author based in southwestern Ohio. A graduate of Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, he returned to Ohio in 1979 to pastor The Oasis Church in Middletown. His vision is to raise up people who will authentically demonstrate the Church on the earth and passionately evangelize the world. His heart is for awakening and reformation in America.
In 1977, a group of Spirit-filled believers who desired to know more of God, banded together in home Bible studies to pray and worship. Out of that, God birthed a desire to establish a New Testament Church in Middletown, Ohio.
That desire has now come to pass. In 1979, Tim Sheets came to pastor the newly formed Oasis, then known as The Living Word. Through his leadership, a strong foundation of practical principles for Christian living is being instilled in the hearts of the congregation. The aim of the congregation was, and still is, to minister to the whole man - spirit, soul, and body. God has set about the process of equipping Oasis and its members for the work of the ministry.
By now you're probably thinking, "What about my kids?" No worries. Your kids will love our children's programs. We have specific areas designed just for your little ones...
Seeds & Sprouts
"Seeds" is our new class for babies birth through 17 months, located off the main lobby. For preschool children, we have "Sprouts" (18mo to 5yrs), where your little ones will learn about Jesus the fun way through Bible stories, sketches and more. Sprouts takes place on the second floor which is up the stairs by our Cafe located in the Main Lobby.
Children in kindergarten through fourth grade will join in the fun at Oasis Kids, a program designed just for elementary kids. With our vibrant music, fun games, hilarious sketches, and Bible-based teaching, your kids are guaranteed to have a blast. Oasis Kids takes place on the second floor which is up the stairs by our Cafe located in the Main Lobby.
On your first visit, we need the following personal information: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our Oasis Kids database to help maintain our secure check-in system.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. We have our own security team to ensure the safety of our children and our campus. We use our Oasis Kids check-in system for child check-in and pick-up, and a paging system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the service.
Oasis Kids is led by Pastor Tosha Salyer. You can contact her directly here.

That's what The Mix on Wednesday nights is all about.
There's plenty of chances for you to connect with other people just like you. So if you're looking for a good way to get plugged in, The Mix on Wednesday nights is the best way to get started.
