THE GREAT EXCHANGE INITIATIVE

We are excited to announce The Great Exchange Initiative - an opportunity for us to advance the Gospel locally, nationally, and around the world.  

3 elements of the initiative

  • Building Improvements
Through much prayer and consideration, we have identified three significant needs in regards to our church building. Specifically, we have settled on three main updates that are needed: 1) Resealing of our parking lot; 2) outdoor lighting on our building; and 3) the painting of the outside of the church. 

Each one of these will not simply be just an update to our building, but be a life-giving improvement for our community to see the church alive-and-well on the corner of Penn and Exchange. Our prayer is that through these improvements our building would not just take on a new look, but become a more welcoming location for both current Church members and members of the local community as we seek to reach souls for Christ. 
  • Streaming Capabilities

Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had the opportunity to implement an online worship service for those who have been at home, and those who are not able to attend in-person. While it has been a great asset for our church, we have recognized the need for live-stream capabilities


This portion of the initiative will be focused on attaining the equipment and technology necessary to implement the live-streaming of our Sunday morning worship services . This will be a huge step forward for our church to reach not just those who are unable to attend, but reach a brand new audience both locally and nationally for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

  • World Missions

Perhaps the most exciting part of this initiative is the opportunity to give back to the mission of reaching the lost for Christ on a global level. Each December and January, we have the privilege as Oklahoma Baptists to raise funds for world missions. This year will be no different. A portion of funds raised for The Great Exchange Initiative will go directly toward advancing the Gospel through world missions. 

HOW CAN I BE A PART OF THE INITIATIVE?

To make this initiative happen, we need you to give


We have set an overall goal of $35,000, which includes each aspect of the initiative (quotes for building improvements, streaming capabilities, and world missions). 


We encourage you to begin praying about what you would be willing to give to support this initiative. We have included a breakdown of what we would need to reach our goal, which we hope to reach by the end of 2020! 


On November 1st, 2020, we will be holding a special Giving Day, where we are encouraging members to give directly toward this initiative on top of our usual tithes and offerings. If you are unable to give on November 1st, you will also have the opportunity to "pledge" to give a certain amount to this initiative before the end of 2020. 


We ask that you would prayerfully consider supporting Exchange in the Great Exchange Initiative as we seek to take the next step in loving God and loving others for the glory of God, the good of the city, and the salvation of souls.
