Lead Pastor - Pastor Kamron J. Oberlin

Pastor Kamron became the pastor here in 2010. He has fallen in love with the community and considers Onaway to be "home". He is married to Shanon and they both consider it an honor to serve at Awaken Church together. 


The Oberlin's have 4 children. The oldest, KJ, lives downstate in the Lansing area. Audrey just got married and is pursuing her credentials for ministry, and will be taking on the Student Pastor position at Awaken Church. And they have finalized the adoption of their now 6 yr old twins that have found their "forever home". 


Pastor Kamron has a heart for our community. The Church spearheaded Project Partnership in 2018 and did numerous improvements throughout the community. The Church also helps the school in many different ways as well. Outside of the church, Pastor Kamron is active in many community-oriented groups. He is the President of the Onaway Community Chamber of Commerce and currently is leading the Onaway Ministerial Association. 


When Pastor is not serving he is enjoying spending time with his family. The Oberlin's love camping, it's a great time to bond. Pastor Kamron is also an avid fisherman and hunter. Fall is his favorite time of year because he gets to do all three!
