Texas & Oklahoma missions
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Texas and Oklahoma missions
The great states of Texas and Oklahoma is over 30 million people. If these states were its own country, it would be the 15th largest economy in the world. It takes 14 hours to drive from one end to the other and we see over 500,000 new neighbors move here every year. With over 28 metro areas with a population over 100,000 people, we have a few of the largest cities in the United States such as Houston, the 3rd largest city in the nation and the #1 energy capital of the world and the Dallas/Fort Worth area home to almost 7 million people. Besides these and other great cities like Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and Austin, we have nationally ranked colleges and other cities statewide that are home to hundreds of thousands.
As we move forward into the new decade, it's good to be remind of the many needs in our states and to lay them before God in both prayer and action. We know that only God can accomplish great things!
We would like to see 4000 mature, loving disciples by decades end. We would like to grow strong not only the large churches but the smaller ones as well, that are well supported spiritually by deacons, elders and family group leaders. We would like to increase our support in New Mexico, Louisiana and Northern Mexico as we strive to spread the gospel and meet the needs of the poor.
It has been so encouraging to see the progress in such places like College Station, Lubbock, Texas and to see plans laid for the Valley, Norman, Ok and Corpus Christi. The next decade is full of promise and possibilities. The fields ARE ready for harvest! Let’s seize the promise and strive to serve God. It all starts with prayer. Pray about you can support these Mission Teams. Ask God to provide the open doors we need to make straight the paths of the Lord. Pray about going on a team. How are you being called by God to go and share the word? Do you aspire to lead in a church planting, as an elder, a deacon, family group leader. We need those with the heart, talent & willingness to train and be trained to be raised up into leadership to lead the charge of the Lord in sharing the gospel here in the great states of Oklahoma and Texas.
In the next 10 Years how far will God take us?
