Upcoming Events

Ministry Wives Weekend 2021

September 24-25 @ Putnam City Baptist Church, OKC

Cost: $50 (no refunds)

Join us for Ministry Wives Weekend – where ministry wives from across the state gather to be encouraged and refreshed in connection with each other and in the truth of God’s Word.

Our theme this year is R E S T: how to be at rest and live in rest in ministry. We all want rest, but how do we get there – especially when life doesn’t stop, doesn’t slow down, and runs on crazy?

We are excited to worship with Jami Smith and to open up God’s Word with Susie Hawkins. Come and learn how to can grab hold of and live in the rest Jesus offers in Matthew 11:28-30.

Registration is now closed.

For questions, email Amy Petersen at ministrywives@oklahomabaptist.org
