A new ministry for South Tulsa is our Orphan Care Ministry.
Our goal is to engage the members of South Tulsa Baptist in orphan care in big and small ways while never losing site of the goal to make sure every child grows up in a permanent family. Whether you have just a few minutes, a few hours, or even a lifetime to give, I pray you will join us on this journey of fulfilling the call of Isaiah 1:17 “Learn to do Right; Seek Justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the Fatherless: plead the cause of the widow.” and James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
To further God’s kingdom by caring for the orphaned and abandoned children.
To make an eternal difference in the lives of orphans and waiting children and promote awareness of God’s heart for the orphan.
