Funds Allocation

Statewide Goal: $1.1 Million

MVP Churches

Spiritual Awakening

($50,000)

MVP Churches (churches of 125 and fewer) are the backbone of the state convention. They comprise nearly 1,500 of our BGCO churches. Through the offering, the Church & Community Spiritual Awakening Project will be developed. This strategy will be designed specifically with smaller churches in mind and will equip churches with prayer guides, evangelism training and a discipleship plan.

Sunday School

The Beta Project

($25,000)

With the goal of inspiring a new generation with the vision of Sunday School, the Beta Project gives church leaders practical hands-on training and coaching to help them implement effective small group ministries. Many Beta Collective churches experience break-through growth and evangelistic results.

Church Multiplication

($350,000)

All around the state, people groups and population segments still need a Gospel preaching church. Through the State Missions Offering, church multiplication is enhanced, locations are identified and new church planters are discovered, assessed, trained, coached and cared for, so they can plant churches that also plant churches.

 Pastor Leadership

Ministerial Crisis Care

($16,000)

Healthy leaders lead healthy churches. Ministerial Crisis Care helps leaders remain healthy and able to lead Great Commission-focused churches. The offering serves approximately 50 leaders and/or their family members. Doing so brings stability for current ministry and provides recovery for future kingdom impact.

Hunger Funds

($95,000)

Last year, 30 church food ministries across our state shared the Gospel 13,190 times and provided 140,918 meals to their local families. This resulted in 425 salvations and 146 baptisms. Through the offering, doors are opened to share the Gospel to those who otherwise struggle to have adequate food in their homes.

Prison and Jail Ministries

($35,000)

The state’s incarceration rate continues to grow. Oklahoma Baptists use one-on-one counseling sessions, Bible study, Evangelism Explosion and job-readiness training to show Christ’s love and share the Gospel. Last year Oklahoma County Jail alone saw 2,300 decisions. We must continue to reach out.

Ethnic Ministries

Rural Ethnic Mission Points

($65,000)

Throughout our state, we have many micro communities of people groups. Through the offering, Oklahoma Baptist will be better able to set up Mission Points for lay people to go into these communities, start a Bible study and raise up a core group of believers. When Mission Points are established throughout the state, the Gospel will be shared in areas that otherwise might be neglected.
