Heifer Chi Rho Week 2015
The Youth Ministry Team & the Summer Ministry Team are working on plans to offer Chi Rho age youth (grades 6-8) an opportunity to experience the Heifer Ranch in Arkansas next year, March 16-19.  The trip will be limited to 20 Chi Rho youth.  Currently, the teams are working on a cost and are seeking individual and group donations to help underwrite the expense of the trip for youth and the adults that give their time.  For more information about how you could help with funding this trip for Chi Rho youth please connect with Rev. Michael Davison.

 

Ministry: Children, Youth, Young Adults

Your generous gifts to the Disciples Mission Fund or the Annual Fund help the Region connect congregations, but they do not underwrite the program ministries offered by the Region. DMF Funding and Annual Fund giving underwrites the operation of the Region (Disciples Center, staff salaries, benefits, and expenses, the Board and Commission work), but does not provide money for sponsoring the many events, retreats, and experiences of the program ministries offered by the Region.  Please consider a gift or any size to support CYYA Ministries.

spacerSummer Ministry
Each young person attending a summer ministry experience helps pay for the adult volunteers for that week. This fee is added to the campe fee and is based on the number of campers that attend and the number of adults needed. Funds raised for Summer Ministry could lower the cost for everyone that attends a camp in the future no matter where it may be hosted.  Please consider a gift to support Summer Ministry and help us create funding to support this ongoing program ministry of the Region.  

Are you considering a "legacy gift" to fund a ministry in your congregation or through the Region?  The Oklahoma Disciples Foundation does this kind of work to support ministries throughout the Disciples of Christ in Oklahoma.

Make your check to Christian Church in Oklahoma and note in the memo line what program ministry you are supporting.

Mail To: 301 NW 36th Street / Oklahoma City, OK, 73118. Please indicate IAS, Youth Ministry, Children's Ministry, Young Adult Ministry, Heifer Week, or  Summer Ministry in the memo line.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!  Contact Rev. Michael Davison for more information about how you can support these missional ministries.
