Don Oates


Don was raised in a large church in the L.A. area where he served as a youth pastor.  After getting married, Don and Kathy spent some time in business before serving in Liberia as missionaries for 1 year. In 1989, Don and Kathy founded Global Fellowship, a mission agency aimed toward unreached regions of the world.  Don and Kathy have served in various roles in our body, youth, children, worship, and missions.  They continue to be drawn to encouraging and discipling young people (15 to 35) and love the ministry of Sierra Grace.
