Missions

We are looking to God to create a missional culture at Northwest Baptist Church. We are seeking to grow disciples who make disciples—who reach friends, neighbors, and the world, until there is no place left without the gospel. Northwest is working to equip and empower our body of believers to go to our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth: we are excited to provide training and resources to send our people to the harvest fields. If you need more information please email our missions office.

1. Praying

Praying is not just part of the work of missions – it is the work! Please e-mail the missions office to receive the weekly Northwest prayer e-letter, Frontline. This letter will help inform you on how to pray specifically for Northwest missions.

3. Going

We send mission team across the street and across the globe. Here are some ways to connect:

International Friendship Partner Ministry

American families, singles, and college students connect with an international student once a month during the academic year. Relationships are built by including the student in normal activities such as meals, holidays, hobbies, school activities, etc. This hospitality ministry is a rich cultural exchange for everyone involved.

Homestays

Many international students are coming to Oklahoma City University for English Language School. Many need housing during their time here. It is a great opportunity to learn about another culture, and share the love of Christ with people in your own home. Homestays are compensated to help offset the cost of having a student in their home. For more info, call the church office or contact our missions team.

Northwest Network Congregations

Do you sense God’s calling to serve among a particular cultural group? Check out the Northwest Network - there are plenty of ways to share the love and good news of Christ with the people of these congregations through ministries like helping with conversational English, tutoring, transportation, childcare, learning their language and more. Each Sunday morning we have worship services on campus in Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Zomi (Burmese)Korean and Vietnamese sister churches meet off campus.

Mission Trips

Each year we send scores of adult and student volunteers on short term mission teams to serve and reach people in our state, North America, and other countries. E-mail the missions office for a current list of projects.

Adopted City

Our current international mission focus is a city on the other side of the globe. Our vision is to engage the people of this city with the gospel to make reproducing disciples who gather in multiplying churches. Opportunities for short term and long term service exist in this city. The harvest is ready - Contact Us to learn how to be a worker in this field.
