Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation – Mark 16:15
Our local missions functions primarily through our Life Change Central ministry. You can find out more about LCC on our Community Outreach page.
We are currently in a partnership with church planters in Chicago though the North American Mission Board and the Send Chicago Initiative. We send missions teams throughout the year to do construction, assist church planters, block parties, etc. Contact Pastor Bryan at to inquire about the next trip.
For international missions we are partnering with Culture Waves Global. They are a great organization that specializes in helping churches go on mission. They currently focus on Trinidad, China, and India. Check out their website to see all the exciting work they are doing.
Oakhill has been a generous supporter of missions for over 50 years. Every year we give 10% of our budget to missions locally, nationally, and internationally. We strongly support the Cooperate Program. In addition to this, we encourage missional giving by giving to the special offerings listed below:
Annie Armstrong Missions Offering
This offering is collected around Easter every year. This year we will be collecting through the month of March. The money collected will be sent to the North American Mission Board to be used in church planting and missions through the US and Canada. Look for more information and giving envelopes in March.
Lottie Moon Missions Offering
This offering is collected around Christmas every year. This year we will be collecting through the month of December. The money collected will be sent to the International Mission Board to be used to fund missions work all over the world. Look for more information and giving envelopes in December.
Oakhill also has a mission club that people can give to throughout the year. It is a more budgeted approach to giving. You can give a little each week, or each month, and watch it add up. The Missions Club is divided into five categories: Lottie Moon (IMB) 51.6%, Annie Armstrong (NAMB) 19.6%, Life Change Central (LCC 10%), Indiana State Missions (SCBI) 10%, and Highland Lakes Baptist Camp 8.8%. Anyone can designate on their offering envelope to give to the Missions Club and the amount will automatically be divvied out.
