This "oasis" experience for the refreshment of pastors and their families emphasizes spiritual enrichment for both personal and family needs. This week is set aside to minister to those to whom God has called to teaching, preaching and shepherding the body of Christ. Group sessions are devoted both to biblical exposition and to family related issues of special relevance to the pastoral family.

The daily schedule allows for personal devotional time, family recreation, time alone as a couple and time for ministering to you and your personal and professional needs. The week begins with Saturday evening supper and lasts through breakfast the following Friday. Some take that day to explore nearby attractions. Expert kitchen staff prepare the food; youth workers care for, instruct and watch over the children; and recreation crew help make your time in the water or woods a happy and healthy experience.


Pastor in Residence

Tom Oyler

Tom is Pastor Emeritus of Grace Fellowship Church in Johnson City, TN.      

After an undergraduate degree from Purdue University, he graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1979. While at Dallas he was youth pastor at Fellowship Bible Church with Dr. Gene Getz. Through a connection with Gene, a new ‘house’ church invited Tom and Leslie to join them in Johnson City in 1980. They served there for the next 38 years with a shepherd’s heart, seeing consistent growth and healthy fruit until Tom was given Emeritus status in 2018. He became the first recipient of the DTS Alumni Distinguished Service Award in April 2013. The Oylers’ now live in McKinney, Texas, near their two children and four grandchildren. Tom serves Leadership Network as he reaches out to pastors who “need someone to talk to,” and enjoys taking people to Israel.
