The Oak Initiative is a grassroots movement to unite, mobilize, equip, and activate Christians to be the salt and light they are called to be by engaging in the great issues of our time from a sound biblical worldview.
It was started by more than 300 Christian leaders from across the spectrum of the body of Christ. Within months of its founding the Oak initiative had a presence in all 50 states and more than 50 nations, with Oak gatherings and Oak chapters springing up rapidly.
The name “The Oak Initiative” is derived from the biblical mandate to be Oaks of Righteousness according to Isaiah 61:3. A healthy Oak tree has a root system that is just as expansive below the ground as its branches are above the ground. We seek to be and to promote an uncommon depth of knowledge and understanding of the crucial issues in our time. An initiative implies our devotion to being proactive in engaging the important issues of our time.
THE RESOLVE OF THE OAK INITIATIVE
To have and constantly strengthen a sound biblical worldview.
To be the salt and light we are called to be by standing without wavering for the truth as we are given the grace to see it.
To defend freedom, especially religious freedom, while also treating those of other faiths and perspectives with dignity and respect.
Through the Oak initiative, we will raise up effect of leaders in the seven areas of dominant influence, which are: governments, business, media, arts/entertainment, education, family, and the church.
THE MICHIGAN CONNECTION
We believe that Michigan can provide a helpful working model for chapters across the nation. The mission of the Oak initiative is what we stand for and is best described by a two-edged sword. One of those edges is proactive solutions where the grassroots can engage the culture…but even more importantly is prayer which is the foundational base for any type of strategy or action.

Oak chapters are developing across the state of Michigan where regional leaders are stepping forth to help organize and make an impact to shape our culture. We all feel the Oak initiative can be part to help preserve a future for our children and grandchildren.
We are asking the people of Michigan to join up and become a member and be part of a movement that will impact Washington DC as we are facing very challenging times. For a minimum donation of $10 and we hope that you would give a larger offering you can become a member and sign up at: www.theoakinitiative.org.
