Tommy has been preaching over 40 years and has vast experience with many areas of ministry.
For the last 25 years, Tommy has been a traveling evangelist on the weekends while he serves at the church near his home in Nashville, Tenn. during the week.
Tommy’s nationwide ministry is characterized by the use of stories and an emphasis on living one’s faith on a daily basis, especially in one’s own family. Tommy travels with his one of his sons, John Thomas, who is a world renowned musician and composer. John Thomas has composed the music and lyrics for 16 musicals and 12 CDs, in addition to his skills on keyboards and vocals.
He travels with his father, leading audiences in worship and sharing their love for the Lord.
Kicking off the Revival at 7 p.m., Aug.16, Tommy Oaks will deliver a message of faith geared toward the people in this area. While Tommy preaches, John Thomas will be performing some of his own music.
At 9 a.m. on August 17, members of the Port will serve a breakfast which will be followed by a seminar led by Tommy on “Unity Within the Body of Christ.” The seminar should conclude around noon, giving participants a chance to enjoy their Saturday evenings before the performance of John Thomas’ musical “Star Queen” at 6 p.m.
“Star Queen” is a musical based on the book of Ester from the Old Testament of the Bible and it tells the story of a young Jewish woman who was selected by God to save her people from destruction.
According to Bartlett, the musical is wonderful, hilarious and inspirational.
“God selects people to serve him in a time of need and crisis,” Bartlett added.
The musical is appropriate for viewers of all ages, as is the rest of the Revival, and children are more than welcome.
