Advancing the Gospel together.

Our Purpose

The Oklahoma Baptists convention staff is here to serve our churches in the areas of encouraging pastors, embracing brokenness, and making disciples.

Cooperative Program Summit

Pastors and other Oklahoma Baptists ministry leaders are invited to a free event at the Baptist Building in Oklahoma City, September 30th to gather to talk about how to strengthen the Cooperative Program in Oklahoma. Your participation in this event will also help leaders on the SBC Executive Committee learn how they can better serve all churches in the convention.

Why attend?

  • Assemble with other CP Giving leaders
  • Provide input into shaping the CP for the next century
  • Explore how to raise awareness of the CP to the next generation
  • Ask questions to the executive committee

2021 Edna McMillan State Missions Offering

Oklahoma Baptists have a long history of stepping into areas of brokenness and meeting needs, all to advance the Gospel. In fact, that is the very heart of this offering. The Missions Offering is a very tangible expression of the common bond we have in Christ and the common mission we have to advance the Gospel in our state.

Pastor Resources

Regather

The fall of 2021 could be one of the most opportune seasons of Gospel ministry in the modern history of Oklahoma Baptists. As our state emerges from the prolonged effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, churches face the challenge and opportunity of regathering people and rebuilding fellowship.

Oklahoma Baptists’ Regional Ministry Partners have met with pastors across the state to hear what they have learned and observed during the last year along with their thoughts and plans for the months ahead. The summary of those conversations has been distilled into four major categories.

Pastor Connect

Joe Ligon, interim executive director-treasurer for Oklahoma Baptists, shares new information for pastors during the month of August. This Pastor Connect includes encouragement to press on, a reminder to use the ReGather resources, and dates for the upcoming Annual Meeting and Pastors’ Conference in November.

2021 Annual Meeting

This year’s annual meeting will take place November 15-16 at Southern Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.

More information will be posted as it becomes available. To pre-register, book a hotel, or make a committee recommendation, please visit the link below.

View Cooperative Program Reports from 2020

2020 presented many challenges, but Oklahoma Baptists have responded with such faithfulness to help advance the Gospel together.

Because your church gives through the Cooperative Program, an amazing array of ministries are supported. We take very seriously the stewardship of Cooperative Program money, as it is given in worship as an offering to the Lord.

Hear Oklahoma Baptists who are serving with the IMB talk about how your church’s giving is advancing the Gospel to the nations.

SEND Network Oklahoma

Leaders with Oklahoma Baptists and the North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention recently announced a new church planting partnership being launched to enhance church planting across Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Baptists convention staff is here to serve our churches.

We will develop strategies that are church-centered, pastor-connected and associational-partnered. We value context, recognizing that the pastor understands his flock and field in ways that we are not able. We will strive to provide relevant support and prefer pulling targeted resources to a church rather than pushing resources indiscriminately.

Beginning in 2020, Oklahoma Baptists will set our focus to encouraging pastors, embracing brokenness, and making disciples. These are key parts of our mission to advance the gospel together.
