Oracle Ministries Christian Center


Oracle Ministries Christian Center was birthed in Bishop Stanley Kerr's spirit in 1999 while traveling for his job, as God was dealing with him concerning pastoring.  Bishop Kerr asked his wife to look up scriptures pertaining to the word "oracle" because he was not clear about what it meant and what God wanted to accomplish through Oracle Ministries.  The scripture that was settled upon was 1 Peter 4:11,

"If anyone speaks, let him speak the oracles of God.  If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever, Amen."

Bishop Kerr struggled with whether he was ready to pastor because he only saw himself as a deacon that had recently become a licensed minister.  He thought that he needed more education and training.  He even enrolled in an online seminary because he traveled so much on his job.  He received a partial scholarship and borrowed the rest of the money.  He received his materials in the mail but never once opened a book or sent an assignment.  He dropped the classes too late and was frustrated with himself for 'wasting the money.'


Bishop Kerr approached his pastor to discuss the transition that was about to take place; his pastor had been anticipating this day.  He praised Bishop Kerr for his faithfulness to the ministry and prayed God's blessings upon him and his family.

The ministry began with a Bible study in the Kerr's living room during the summer of 2002.  In the meanwhile, they prayed that God would bless them with a facility that their 

own tithes and freewill offerings would meet all the monthly obligations.  The Kerr's believed that people would come and they wanted people to meet Jesus, to receive Him as Lord and Savior, and to be baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit.  They wanted an opportunity to teach and preach to people without giving people the upfront pressure to tithe.  God blessed in a mighty way so that Kerr's could minister and the people learned to give without "pressure."

In September of 2002, Oracles Ministries moved to a storefront in South Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  The first members were Bishop Kerr, Co-Pastor Kerr, and their three sons.  Several people and went initially.  Then God began to add souls that chose to be a part of Oracle Ministries.  The new saints began to invite their friends and family members, and souls were added to the ministry.  The presiding Bishop of the state of Oklahoma for Christ Holy Sanctified Church, Bishop Silky R. Wilson and his wife, First Lady Julia Wilson even chose to worship at Oracle Ministries.  The ministry grew to over 30 members by May, 2005.

God had added another ordained couple in the ministry, Steven and Robin Taplin.  Both of them were used mightily by God not only in ministering the Word of God but also as minstrels for God.  Robin was also over the youth ministry, as God had given her a special heart for the young people.

During this time Bishop Kerr expressed that it was time to move back to their home state, Texas.  Bishop Kerr was concerned about his father, Deacon James P. Kerr, who was getting older and was 91 years old at the time.  His mother, Missionary Katha L. Kerr, had passed five years earlier and being the youngest of 12 children he believed that it was time to move closer to his family.

Co-Pastor Kerr expressed that she was not sure about this move and questioned Bishop Kerr on numerous occasions as to whether he was sure about this move.  Many saints also questioned whether Pastor Kerr was being led of the Lord to make this move.  Yet Bishop Kerr was certain that it was God and in July of 2005, he packed up his family and relocated to Richmond, Texas.

Initially, Bishop Kerr and his family visited other ministries and spoke at other churches at those churches requests.  Bishop Kerr, however, began to feel troubled in his spirit, knowing he was not obeying God.  He shared with his wife that it was time to re-establish the ministry God originally put in his spirit.  In July 2006, Oracle Ministries was once again birthed in Bishop Kerr's living room, starting with Bible study on Wednesday evenings.  In September 2006, Oracle Ministries Christian Center began to have Sunday morning worship services at the Holiday Inn Express in Rosenberg, Texas.  Since that time, Oracle Ministries has grown to more than 20 members.


 Oracle Ministries Christian Center (OMCC) has extended its faith toward God for its place of worship to be more visible to those in the Richmond-Rosenberg area and the surrounding communities in Fort Bend County.  The goal is to see as many souls as possible be birthed into the Kingdom of God before Jesus' return.  We want to hear the Lord say, "Well done thy good and faithful servant."
