We’re Celebrating a Great God!

He has been changing lives for over 11 years now at TheBOD.  It’s because of your faithfulness to serve, love, pray and give you helped to make an eternal difference in the lives of others in 2018 and looking forward to what he will do in 2019. You played a role in every hand that was raised and every story that was changed.

Behind every hand that is raised is a story of someone’s life that is changed.  That person matters to us and they matter to God.

Stories Matter

We say that every person has a name, every name has a story,  and that story matters to God and to us.  We’re committed to sharing the stories God is telling through others at TheBOD.
Here are a few that we’ve had the honor of being a part o in 2018.
The church is not a building, it’s the people.  Each week we gather to worship, celebrate, and serve God.  We’ve found purpose behind our passion and want to help everyone become the person God created them to be. In 2018 we launched a third experience to reach more people for Christ.

Baptism

It’s one of the most meaningful steps we can experience as a follower of Christ – letting the world know of our decision to follow him.  That’s why we make a big deal about it. Check out a couple of the stories of life change below.

Serving

At TheBOD, volunteers make the difference. One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is to serve the local church. And it’s not just on the weekends! Serving opportunities are available seven days a week.

Coming in 2019!

Every Sunday lives are changed, friendships are forged, marriages are strengthened, families are encouraged, and people are empowered to lead. Because we believe the local church is the hope of the world, we’re reimagining LifeKids and what it means for us to raise the next generation to fall in love with Jesus. Here are a few pics to give you an idea of what our redesigned space will include.

Be a part of building the future of LifeKids

We’ve set a goal of raising $95,000 in 2019 above and beyond our normal giving to help bring this project to completion. Consider giving above and beyond your normal giving to Campus Development to help us reach kids and families right here in our community. 

Your Church on Mission

Church Planting

The local church is the hope of the world. We are committed to helping plant and launch Open Network churches whose mission it is to reach others with the good news of Christ. This year we were able to help TheEDGE.church in Clinton, OK move out of a rented facility and into a permanent home. Over 600 people gave their lives to Christ at TheEDGE this year and over 800 attend each week.

Relief and Restoration

Beyond what happens in our personal lives and church experiences, sharing the love of Christ means bringing help and hope to people in need. We partner with community organizations, local churches, and focus on opportunities that span the globe.

This Fall, we partnered with two local schools to provided the financial literacy curriculum for

200 students.

It comes from a biblically based and accredited source that will help students with things like budgeting all the way to buying their first car with cash.

This Summer, we announced a community service scholarship to give

$2500

to a local high school student and committed to providing that same scholarship for the next four years.

 

Digital Missions

Every week God is changing lives. Every hand that is raised, every story shared, every baptism celebrated is a result of God using people in their local campus and community through their giving to impact lives all across the globe.  We partner with Life.Church digital missions to maximize every dollar we give toward this effort.

You played a part on launching a new app from Life.Church

YouVersion Bible Lens is the app that transforms your everyday photos into profound, Biblically-based artistic shareable images. Bible Lens lets you take a picture, or point to one you already have. It detects not only objects in your photo, but more importantly, the Biblical themes of the moment that photo captured… and then suggests Bible verses to match!
