Ministry of the Month – Oasis International


Oasis Intl. is a Prophetic International Training Center that equips believers to live in love and power, fulfilling their God-given call.

Oasis Intl. is located in Ely, MN and has been in existence for 19 years. It was founded by John and Daryl Oberg and in 2008 they passed the baton to their daughter, Cherish. She pastored as a young single woman for years until she married Patrick Knudson in 2015. They now enjoy ministering together and are seeing God do tremendous things.

Father has given Oasis Intl. mandates that include raising up leaders who reveal the Kingdom of God in the earth, helping birth and nurture ministries, and training believers and teams how to flow in prophetic worship that releases the will of God through inspired words, songs and sounds. God has big plans for all His children and our desire is to encourage and challenge believers in transformation from glory to glory into His image.

We also have a passion to see unity in the Body of Christ and youth ablaze with Father’s heart. Cherish is the local ministerial president and has organized a number of  ecumenical events over the years to inspire believers to pray and worship together. Oasis Intl. hosts “12 Hours of Prayer & Worship” approximately once a year and many different churches have been involved. We have hosted outreach events in the park and love to see people touched in street evangelism. We recently co-hosted meetings with Dan Mohler in Ely and Virginia and the impact was great. Many people are forever changed.

Patrick and Cherish also travel and minister in the states and abroad through teaching and worship at conferences, Sunday morning services, and youth events.

We invite you to visit Oasis Intl. on a Sunday morning at 10 a.m. at the Ely Senior Center located at 27 S. 1st Ave. E.  God is doing great things in the north!
