Separation and divorce are among life's most difficult and painful experiences. Divorce is not a single event, but a journey. The paths you choose on that journey can make all the difference in the quality and direction of your life moving forward.
Whether you are separated, newly divorced, or processing an earlier divorce, Oasis will help you heal and bring new direction to your life.
Oasis is a place of encouragement, learning, and sharing. Oasis meets weekly in homes around the Atlanta and North Georgia area to provide ongoing support to those experiencing divorce or separation. Each group is co-ed, has between eight to ten participants, and is led by specially trained leaders who have personally experienced divorce. Groups meet for 13 weeks and discuss how to grow spiritually and emotionally through divorce.
Each week, the group will watch a video followed by a guided discussion time. Oasis provides an opportunity to learn from and encourage others in similar circumstances.
Registration Fee: $30
We understand that the expense of childcare can be a deterrent to participating in an Oasis group. Because we are committed to removing as many obstacles as possible, the church reimburses group participants at a predetermined rate for their childcare expenses, if needed.
Buckhead Church now offers childcare reimbursements online. To receive access to the online system, please fill out the request form at www.buckheadchurch.org/childcare.
After submitting the form, you should receive an email within three to five business days containing further instructions, including your login information and how to request reimbursement each week.

Oasis is designed to help individuals overcome the pain of separation and divorce. This ministry seeks to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by providing comfort, healing, and direction during this difficult time. We do this by offering biblical truths in the environment of a caring community.
In order to create these environments, we need many skilled group leaders that are willing to comfort, encourage, and sometimes confront. Helping people in times of crisis is not for everyone. Oasis group leaders help people walk through some very difficult situations. For this reason, we take great care in enlisting, training, and developing leaders.
Please read through the information below to better understand the role of a leader and the steps to become a leader. If after consideration you are interested in pursuing Oasis leadership, please follow the instructions below to complete the leader application. Once we receive your application, we will contact you for an interview.
Oasis group leaders are responsible for providing vision, direction, and support. Each week the Oasis leaders facilitate conversation around a specific topic while offering help and encouragement. Leaders are successful when they are personally growing in their own relationship with Jesus Christ and encouraging the group members' growth as well. This requires time spent in the group meeting, occasional one-on-one meetings with group members outside of the normal meeting time, as well as participation in ongoing training and development opportunities provided by the church.

We are always looking for host homes for our Oasis groups. We have found that the most comfortable place for participants to open up and share their tough circumstances is in private, laid-back home environments.
Typical host homes need to be available for 13 weeks and have adequate seating for 12-14 people in a room where the group can watch a DVD. Since most of our participants drive separately, accessible and ample parking is necessary. If you have an interest in offering your home to host a group, please fill out the form below and a member of the Oasis team will be in contact.
