Prairie Oaks Baptist Church was established in 1984 as a church of the Baptist Missionary Association, after several years as a mission led by Earnest Meadows.  Back then, those faithful servants of God desired to contribute to the gospel witness of Jesus Christ in Prairie Grove and western Washington County through discipleship, worship, and service.  Some things have changed while others have stayed the same, but the desire to be used of God to make a difference for Christ has not.  Pastor Brad Harris and his wife Libby came to Prairie Oaks in 2010 with a desire to prepare the next generation of disciples to make a difference for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We are excited to see God at work within us and through us as we write the next chapter of Prairie Oaks history.
