Ministry of Jesus–Togo
Oakbrook Church has been connected with and supporting the Ministry of Jesus since 1995. Many teams from Oakbrook have traveled to Togo over the years to share in their work. The Ministry of Jesus currently strengthens the indigenous Togolese church in rural villages and trains up leaders for the church.

Those who have a prayer request can send an email to prayer@oakbrookchurch.org. That prayer request will then be distributed to members who have chosen to be part of Oakbrook’s prayer chain ministry. If you would like to participate in the prayer chain, please email Kathy at
