Welcome to James Rackley Ministries & The Oasis Center!

The number one objective for James Rackley Ministries and THE OASIS CENTER is children. James and Beverly Rackley believe children are the world’s greatest natural resource. We, their workers, provided Vacation Bible School in the Mayan Jungle through an ADOPT a VILLAGE Program!


THE OASIS CENTER is a place of peace, encouragement and training. It is a place which manifests the goodness of God.  The property was purchased by a partner church in New York in October 2005.  It is home in Mexico for James and Beverly Rackley.

THE OASIS CENTER provides training, meals and overnight accommodations to teachers and leaders.  Those leaders are impacting hundreds of adults and thousands of children across several states in Southern Mexico and the country of Belize.

The Oasis Center



In 2005 God directed one of our partner churches in New York to purchase a beautiful property in the township of Bacalar, in the State of Quintana Roo where THE OASIS CENTER is now located.

THE OASIS CENTER has beautiful dormitories that are used by groups from the United States and Canada from time to time as they visit and minister. Many groups came to do construction and help distribute food after Hurricane Dean. Our dormitories can sleep fifty people.


THE OASIS CENTER has beautiful bathrooms that consist of twelve showers in addition to other restroom facilities. The money to build this convenient facility was provided by a church in Massachusetts in honor of our deceased friend Pastor Sam Smith.

THE OASIS CENTER kitchen facilities are wonderful. The equipment was provided by friends in Texas and Ontario Canada. Praise God for partners!









THE OASIS CENTER dining area is also wonderful. The dining area can seat 100+ people. It was originally build by a church group from Texas. However it was badly damaged by Hurricane Dean and had to be rebuilt.


The Rackley’s host workers, teachers and pastors from the remote villages for training seminars.  The pastors receive encouragement, biblical and pastoral training.  The children’s workers and teachers are trained how to reach children application of the Word of God.  We help establish and train workers and then send them back to their respective village equipped.

James and Beverly believe children are the world’s greatest natural resource. They believe we can change a nation, one child at the time.  One of their main outreaches at THE OASIS CENTER is Vacation Bible Schools for the children during the summer in the villages.

The teachers come to THE OASIS CENTER for several days several times annually for VBS training.  The entire program, eating, sleeping, classes, and all the resources for their respective VBS events are provided at no cost to the attendees.
