We as a youth group focus on two big ideas: Relational Intimacy and Serving God's Kingdom.

  1. Relational Intimacy: We seek relational intimacy with God, Leader/Student relationships and Peer Relationships.  We do this through bible study, music, prayer, small groups, discipleship, and events!
  2. Serving: We seek to serve God's Kingdom by using our gifts and passions to serve our communities through the local church.

    Hey!  I was born and raised in South Africa and my lovely wife, Lisa, is from Wisconsin.  We've been in Green Bay for a few years now.  I am part-time seminary student, part-time school bus driver, and full-time disciple of Christ.  I look forward to hanging out with the whole youth group but am especially glad to be leading the 11th and 12th grade boys.

    Favorite Pastimes: spelling "favorite" with a "u" as in "favourite" because this is the proper spelling of the word ;) I also enjoy biking, hiking, reading, and racquet (racket) sports.

    Hello, I'm Ryan!  I hail from the ice laden dredges of Green Bay, WI.  I'm a Bay Port High School alum with a bachelor's in Marketing from UWGB.  Although, I'm probably a better student nowadays than when I was in School.  I spend the majority of my free time studying Scripture, apologetics, and reformed theology.  I'm also passionate about art, dogs, and the advancement of the Kingdom of God.  I'm married to my super wife Mia.  We have a fluffy cat named Roman and the most beautiful fish named Warner.

    Favorite Pastimes: Disc golfing, watching football, memorizing Scripture and illustration.

  • Mia Malchow (11th Grade girls)

    My name is Mia Malchow (ME-UH, MAL-KO) and I have accepted to be called "Mya Mal-CHOW" the rest of my life since marrying my husband Ryan Malchow.  I am originally from Cocoa Beach, FL where all the sand, sun and vacations happen!  I love making my home in Green Bay where, as a vegan, I can watch everyone devour all the cheese they can imagine...and also wear it on their heads during Packer games ;)!  

    More seriously, though, I am thrilled about being a part of Oasis Youth Ministry at Jacob's Well Church to make disciples who make disciples!  I am passionate about pouring into the lives of young believers, bearing their burdens and raising them up to be titans in the faith!  My joy and delight is to serve the Body of Christ.  To that end

    -Soli Deo Gloria
