Our Vision

Our Vision

Vision 2020-2027

In case you missed our most recent vision meeting, it’s important to know about our plans for the next seven years. Earlier this year, the Blue Oaks Elder Board prayed, surveyed attendees, researched and prayed again and then adopted these four priorities:

New Building

We open a permanent home in Pleasanton that serves as a foundation to expand our physical presence into the neighborhoods of the Tri-Valley.

Next Gen

Young people grow in their faith, return every Sunday and are excited to invite their friends. By the time a student graduates High School, they are fully integrated into the life of Blue Oaks through serving, worshipping and committed to their personal spiritual growth. Parents view Blue Oaks as a vital partner in the development of their kids.

Love the Tri-Valley

We are a visible demonstration of Christ’s love to the Tri-Valley attracting those who can’t believe a church can make such a difference. Our partner organizations are dumbfounded by our irrational generosity.

Connections

Everyone is connected and building relationships at Blue Oaks. We are growing, learning, serving, and laughing with each other. There are no barriers to relational connections.
