Missions – Jerusalem

Jerusalem - Our Neighborhood - Missions

Jerusalem, for us, is the area in North-West Oklahoma City that is in the shadow of our steeple. Our Jerusalem ministries serve those in our neighborhood. 

We Love our Neighborhood

In an effort to communicate that we love our neighborhood, we do a “Love Bomb” drive once a quarter. In the Love Bomb drive a team bakes cookies, another packages them up, and then another delivers these homemade cookies to the 150 businesses within the shadow of our steeple. If you would like to participate, please email Pastor Shonn at skeels@pcbc.tv.

Whiz Kids

PCBC is partnering with Wiley Post Elementary School to host a Whiz Kids program. The program works with at-risk kids in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area to improve reading skills and comprehension and to foster mentoring relationships with caring adults. PCBC members mentor Wiley Post students every Monday to help them with schoolwork and share the love of God.

Learn more about the program at their website here. If you would like to volunteer, contact the coordinators at gerald.deaton@gmail.com and jgdeaton777@gmail.com

iChaplaincy

The iChaplaincy ministry is one of the most effective ways to reach secular society because there are times chaplains can go places where the Church simply is not allowed to go. Becoming a part of the iChaplaincy team will provide many opportunities to extend the ministry of the local church beyond the “four walls” of the church facility.

Family and Marriage Team

In 2017, the Family and Marriage team launched the Faith@Home Resource center. Learn more about the ministry here, or visit the Faith@Home page here to download and view all the resources online.

CIA Ministry Team

Our Compassion In Action ministry team continues to meet with, encourage, and counsel people and families in times of crisis. If you would like to help, contact Brett Hay at bhay@pcbc.tv.

PC North Football Ministry

Our Millennials and Recreations Pastor, Brian Weaver, is also the Chaplain for the Putnam City North football team. For every home game, PCBC ministers to the football team with a meal on our campus. If you would like to help, contact Brian Weaver at bweaver@pcbc.tv.

Partners in Education

As a mission within the local community, Putnam City Baptist Church reaches out to support and encourage area school students and staff. For the past several school years, PCBC members have volunteered their time to mentor at Wiley Post Elementary School. Students are uniquely paired with mentoring partners who visit the school an average of once a week. The one-on-one time with students often includes assisting with school work, reading books together, playing games, or simply talking about subjects of interest to build positive adult interaction. PCBC Mentors also make sure the staff at Wiley Post Elementary knows they are appreciated and being lifted in prayer.
