Greetings to those that share a Love for our Lord, Jesus Christ. I have been serving the Lord’s Church family here as an Elder since 2002. I grew up in this church as a young boy and through my youth years. I was married here in 1978 to my wife Diana. She and I raised three girls with this Church family. It seems God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave me my last name of Wood. Everything I like to do is connected to the "Woods" from working to recreating. For my love of people and the outdoors I also enjoy amateur radio which connects me with brothers and sisters all over the world and is my communication life line when I'm frequenting remote areas.
I grew up in Springfield, OR. After graduating from high school I went to Lane Community College and received an Associates degree and then I went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from Northwest Christian University. I thought I had my plan figured out but the Lord sent me and my family to Johnson City, TN where I studied at Emmanuel Christian Seminary and pastored a local church for three years. I've been married to my high school sweetheart since 2004 and have two kids. In my spare time I love spending it with my family going camping or going to the beach. I also love sports and hunting and fishing.
My wife, Kathleen, and I have been married for 42 years and FRCC has been our church home since 1986. We have three grown children and eight grandchildren. I served the church as a deacon until 2009, when I accepted a clear calling from the Lord to join the leadership team as an Elder. For over 35 years, I've enjoyed my job as a Project Engineer for a company that manufactures recycling equipment. In my spare time, I enjoy working on and cruzin' in my classic '71 Ranchero, trying to keep up with my grandchildren and spending time with my family.

I consider myself a life-long follower of Jesus Christ despite my moments in the wilderness. I'm a student in search of the truth of my purpose in God's plan. I'm finding it at Fern Ridge Christian Church. I'm retired from the US Army and the Sheriff's Office. Now I dedicate myself to serving our Lord with my wife Gerry who has been my other half since 1979. I enjoy flying radio controlled aircraft, motorcycling, computers and all things technical.
My family & I have been coming to FRCC since the fall of 1987.
Ruth Ann & I were married in 1981 & have two boys, Oskar JR & Noah. Oskar Jr is married to Rachel & we have one grandchild, Lucy. I like spending as much time as I can with family whom I enjoy so much. i also like to do a lot of hunting, fishing, camping shooting & reloading. I have been an Elder since 1998 & it has been great to be able to serve in this Church body through out all those years.
I play the bass guitar in the praise band and a Deacon. I enjoy flying kites of all kinds and have been blessed with a wonderful wife and four children.
