PRAY! James 5:16 tells us "the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective." Please pray for the children in our care, our staff, and for those who support us. Without the fervent prayers of the believers who support us, we would not be able to achieve our goals in caring for God's children in Oklahoma and the surrounding states who so desperately need us.
ASK YOUR CHURCH TO BE INVOLVED. There is an opportunity for your congregation, as a church body, to serve in helping the needy children of the Oaks Indian Mission. Please be an advocate for the Mission and encourage your church to unify to serve in some capacity whether financially, physically or in prayer.
ESTATE PLANNING Remember Oaks Indian Mission in your estate planning to ensure your continued support in the future.
Volunteer Opportunities at Oaks Indian Mission
Oaks Indian Mission is fully supported by congregations, men’s and women’s groups, individuals, families, and organizations. In addition to monetary contributions, we do have other needs to be met on a volunteer basis throughout the year and could always use an extra hand or two with various activities on campus. Volunteer opportunities could be, but are not limited to, service projects, special events, receiving in-kind donations, assistance with mass, in-house mailings and many other needs.
Cultural Immersion-Based Trips
In addition to volunteer opportunities, we also offer a more cultural approach to your trip to Oaks.
What does that mean, you ask? -- Though we are always grateful and appreciative of any assistance, helping us to sustain our longstanding Mission, we believe it is also important to learn from and about those who you are helping. Through various activities and experiences, you will have a better understanding of culture, history, and traditions, and will also know what it means to immerse yourself in someone else's way of life. It is also our belief that it is helpful in understanding what makes each of us unique so we can build relationships for generations to come, which is such a vital part of living and learning through God’s love for us all!
