Brian Cole, Senior Pastor

The Oaks Church, Drummond, WI

After 30 plus years involved in Satanism and the occult, 27 plus years of incarceration as a drug addict and caught up in many other addictions such as cutting, pornography, sex, Dungeons & Dragons Etc. In 2009 after being suicidal and almost succeeding on three occasions, Brian was arrested for the last time. At the age of 44, through a faith-based drug and alcohol program offered in the county jail he came to know the truth of Jesus Christ and was born again on January 22nd 2009 being radically saved by the very same God he had denied for so many years. Since then God has used Brian’s past for His glory. The last thing he wanted after 27+ years behind the walls is going back to them! But within 2 years after his release the Lord asked him to go back in! But he did! He has been part of prison ministry and Prison Fellowship and Good News Jail and Prison Ministry since 2012.

He has been part of a biker ministry since 2011, and is currently part of the Faith Riders Motorcycle Ministry of Chequamegon. After 2 years the Lord put Brian in the position of a Pastor!! In 2012 he was hired as Associate Pastor/Youth Pastor/Outreach Pastor of Faith Evangelical Free Church! In November 2014, he received his ministry licence from the Free church. September 1, 2016, Brian was hired on as the Senior Pastor at The Oaks Community Church, in Drummond WI. He also serves part time at Crossroads Outreach in Ashland as Director of their faith based drug and alcohol outreach and prisoner reentry and mentorship outreach programs. He is a certified drug and alcohol counselor in the Almond Tree Drug and Alcohol Program, and certified in the Prepare/Enrich Marriage Counseling program. Since the very first year of his release, he has been blessed with many opportunities to travel all over and give testimony and powerful messages including: The Gideon’s conventions, schools, youth groups, youth conferences, retreats, ball games, treatment centers, aftercare programs, biker events, women’s conferences and churches. it.

Our Vision  

To Restore All Lives Impacted By Sex Trafficking. This event is designed from Our Mission... to REACH, RESCUE, RESTORE and 

REDEEM the Chippewa Valley. 

  To reach souls through the blood of Jesus Christ no matter what your story is. 

God is Good!



Our hearts are to help rescue and protect the victims of the Chippewa Valley and surrounding communities which is the driving force to have an event such as this.  This will be a time set aside to focus our energy and efforts into the lives of the abused and YES! the abuser! A tool to inform and educate the Chippewa Valley about these horrific issues 

in our world, and to equip and support people to take a personal stance against them.  The event will be held on the 5-acre piece of donated land named “Abba’s Landing”, located at 7007 Crescent Ave. Eau Claire. 

We will have Ministry Resource booths from local  businesses who are directly or indirectly related to this cause. By putting materials in the hands of the attendees, we can better equip them in helping serve this cause better. It is our goal to approach and tackle this issue from a Biblical position, recognizing that a permanent solution must begin in the heart. Sin is the real problem. The rescue from sin is only possible through Jesus Christ whom then redeems lives permanently.

We have created a FB page “Rescued & Redeemed” for information, and event updates. People may also donate to our organization 

through our "online giving" that has been set up through our page.  

We invite you to check us out. Thank you for your consideration in supporting this extremely important event.


All for God’s Glory, 

C0-Founders, Elaine Geissler & Sali Bluse
