Meet Our Pastor: Barry Britt
Barry has served as a pastor for over 20 years. He has degrees from Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham Alabama and a Doctorate of Ministry from Covington Theological Seminary. After pastoring an incredible church family in Springville, Alabama for 17 years Barry was led to serve God in a different place, although having no idea where. Stepping out in faith, he resigned. The Lord soon gave Barry’s heart the call to plant a new church ministry in rapidly growing Baldwin County, Alabama. In this walk of faith God opened the doors to start a new work in the heart of Orange Beach at a popular shopping center called the Wharf. On May 1st 2016, Oasis Church was born. Barry’s heart is to be faithful and obedient to God’s will whatever that is and whatever the cost. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married for 26 years. They have two sons, Houston and Hunter, who also serve the Lord in ministry. Their oldest son, Houston, is the worship pastor at Oasis. Barry loves studying the Bible, teaching, and preaching the Word for making and maturing disciples of Christ. His hobbies are building, hunting, fishing and working in the yard.
Meet Our Worship Leader: Houston Britt
From a young age Houston discovered that he wanted to use his musical abilities and his life to serve the Lord in ministering to believers and unbelievers. In pursuing this calling learned to play a variety of instruments, including guitar, piano and drums. Houston has a degree from Gadsden State Community College, and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Mobile in Worship Leadership with a concentration in Church Ministry. After graduating from the University of Mobile, Houston decided that he would partner with his parents in beginning a new work that has now become Oasis Church. He firmly believes that the biggest mission for the church is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed, making the most of every opportunity to make genuine Christ following disciples. Houston loves working with Oasis, ministering to others, and building genuine relationships. His hobbies are: playing music, fishing, hunting, longboarding, hiking, and building miscellaneous items.
