The Tulsa area is in the heart of “Green Country,” enriched by its oil heritage, and boasts of world-class cultural attractions. Most people in the area would consider themselves to be religious, but many do not know the Savior. Our teams will be meeting physical and spiritual needs in mobile home communities and more.
Why serve in Tulsa?
Tulsa has Oklahoma’s 2nd largest metro area and is in the heart of Green Country.
Tulsa is enriched by its oil heritage, and boasts of world-class cultural attractions. By 1920, Tulsa was home to 400 petroleum companies making it the “oil capital of the world.”
Nearly 7,000 people end up homeless, at least for a time, in the Tulsa metro area every year. Thousands more are just the loss of a paycheck away from finding themselves losing a home or apartment and perhaps ending up on the streets.
34% of those in the Tulsa metro area would consider themselves religious but many do not know the Savior.
95% of people living in multi-housing, government housing, mobile home parks, etc are unchurched. Many people living in mobile home communities do not feel comfortable coming to a traditional brick and mortar church. So through the efforts of GO Students, we will take the church to them and partner with ministries throughout the Tulsa metro area.
Our teams will be taking the church to people in mobile home communities doing a variation of block parties, kid’s mobile clubs, all while sharing the Gospel and meeting needs in the Name of Jesus.
