Meet Commencement Speaker, Toby Oaks

Coram Deo Academy holds a dear place for the Oaks family. Toby & Sonia served the CDA Community for 15 years.
They both taught, and Toby served in the capacity of Campus Administrator for the Collin County Campus from 2015-2019 and the Dean of Schools for all three campuses from 2019-2021. Their sons, Ryan and Nathan, attended from PreK up to 9th and 5th grade, respectively.

Before serving at CDA, Toby and Sonia were missionaries with Campus Crusade for Christ in New Mexico and Spain for 15 years, followed by Toby’s completion of a Master of Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. Toby is now senior pastor at Stanwood Community Church in northeast Ohio. His calling is to teach, serve, and encourage so that others may be equipped to fulfill God’s purposes for their lives. In his free time, he loves the outdoors (hiking and biking while listening to audiobooks), time with family, and cheering on his lifelong favorite team (and now perennial underachievers), the San Antonio Spurs.
