Wes Oren

Wes joined the Rockpoint staff in 2016 after being a part of the Leadership Board. 

Wes was born in Ashtabula, Ohio and has lived in a variety of cities throughout the United States including New Mexico, Georgia, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and finally to Minnesota. Wes was raised in a Christian home and recommitted himself to Christ shortly after his marriage to Paula. Wes studied Chemical Engineering and Business in college. His adult ministry efforts began as a Sunday school teacher for newlywed couples and he has served in a variety of churches in different ways throughout adult life. His work in the chemical industry required multiple family relocations as his career developed, and international travel became routine as he managed manufacturing and supply chain operations.

Wes has been married to his wife Paula since 1988 and they have three college age young adult children. Wes and Paula enjoy watching college sports in the fall and winter. Spring and summer provide nice opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. They lead a Life Group during the school year and enjoy hosting people at their home each couple weeks for Bible study.

“2 Timothy 1:7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. God asks for different things from each of us, but has always prepared us for what is needed.”
