The San Diego Church of Christ teaching ministry is a bottomless well of resources for those who strive to know God’s word more fully.

Teaching Ministry

The San Diego Church of Christ is strongly committed to making the Bible our one and only standard for both belief and practice.  In order to put this ideal into practice, we believe it is essential that every member comes to know the scriptures both broadly and deeply.  To this end, we have organized a teaching ministry and put a teaching plan into practice.  We also have organized training for those who seek to be teachers for the local church.

Want to deepen your bible knowledge? You're in the right place!

About the teaching ministry of the San Diego Church of Christ. We have in-depth Bible classes for new Christians, and an on-going in-depth series of Bible classes on Saturdays available to every member on an on-going basis.  We also offer regular Bible classes on a more basic level through our devotionals across the church for every member.  We also offer annual Bible workshops for the whole congregation.  In addition, the full-time ministry staff receives regular biblical training and a number of our staff have pursued advanced degrees in biblical and related studies.

Our teaching ministry is lead by John Oakes (full bio). John earned a BS in Chemistry at the University of Connecticut in 1977 and PhD in chemical physics from the University of Colorado in 1984. John became a Christian as a graduate student in 1978 as part of a campus ministry in Boulder Colorado. Since receiving his PhD, John has held positions teaching chemistry and physics on college and university campuses as well as traveled the world teaching God’s word. Four years ago, the San Diego Church of Christ officially appointed Dr. John Oakes as a teacher for the church.
