need one on one care?

Our pastors and lay volunteers at Oak Hill UMC work together to serve the pastoral
and caring needs of the church community. We strive to be the hands and feet of

Christ, caring for each other as He taught us to do.

Pastoral Counseling

Our pastors are available to meet with you to offer a listening ear and for prayer. They are also able to refer you to professional counselors if you need a higher level of care. To reach the pastors, contact the church office at or visit our Staff Team page for individual contact information.


Homebound Ministries

Are you unable to get out and about? We love to stay connected with our homebound members.

We make friendly visits and are also able to bring communion elements to you. 

Contact Pastor Missy Jenson at (512) 288-3836 or

Agape Meals

An outreach team of volunteer individuals that provides meals to other church members who are experiencing various temporary crises (e.g. birth of a child, death of a family member, sickness, hospitalizations, etc.). Please contact Ashley Fryer at if receiving meals

through a trying time would be a help to you.

Prayer Chain

We have an active network of persons who pray for concerns as they come in. Contact the church office at (512) 288-3836 or to request prayers or fill out this online form.

Hospital Visitation


If you or a family member or a friend is currently hospitalized and would like to have a visitor from the church, please contact the church office at (512) 288-3836 or


Stephen Ministers


We all experience challenges in life when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian relationship. Stephen Ministers provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to persons experiencing difficulties such as changes in relationships, family, employment, relocation, finances, health, spiritual needs, and more. Stephen Ministers will “be there” for their care receiver, meeting faithfully for an hour each week, for as long as there’s a need. While a Stephen Minister is not a pastor, counselor or therapist, each Stephen Minister has received 50 hours of training and additional continuing education.  If you would like to speak confidentially about how a Stephen Minister can help you, please contact Nancy Goodhue, our Stephen Leader Referrals Coordinator, at (512) 426-5541 or,

or Pastor Missy Jenson at (512) 288-3836 or
