Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

In 2014, Southern Hills celebrated God’s faithfulness and 50 years of ministry here in South Oklahoma City. From the very beginning, Southern Hills has had a strong commitment to missions. One of the first orders of business was to establish giving 11% to missions. Fast forward half a century and you will still find a local body of believers in South Oklahoma City very devoted to giving, praying, and going across the street and around the world to share Jesus with people.
World Missions Offering
The Cooperative Program is the Southern Baptist method of supporting mission efforts. 12% of every dollar given is forwarded to the Cooperative Program. In addition to CP giving, Southern Hills takes up a World Missions Offering. Members give throughout the year, but a heavy emphasis begins around Thanksgiving. Our 2021 World Missions Offering is 550,000!

2022 Mission Oppurtunities


North Carolina Youth Trip:  This year our high school students will head to the city of Havelock, N.C. to work with local church planters and pastors to help establish a new church in this highly military town.  Team members will spend part of each day helping to construct and paint the new chapel, and the other part of the days doing outreach to the nearby community.  Dates are March 13-18 and the team is led by Daniel Foster.

North Carolina College Trip:  A team of SHBC college students will head to Havelock, NC to work with NAMB church planters there to reach out to the predominantly military community surrounding the new church plant.  Team members will do canvassing, open air evangelism, and help with renovations on the newly acquired meeting center.   Dates are August 6-12.  Contact Nathan Coats or Randy Whittall for information.
Cincinnati:  NAMB church planters have been in Cincinnati since January, 2021, seeking to plant a new church in the new Bridge City Church in the Anderson Township area of the city.  Our team will go to support their outreach efforts through community prayer-walking, painting fire hydrants, street evangelism, and small group engagement.  Dates are: September 10-17.   Contact Randy Whittall for more information.
Virginia:  This is a team that gets to love on the children of overseas personnel while their parents are going through advanced security training before returning to the field.
