Local Missions We Support

Baptist Collegiate Ministries

There are over 50 directors, associates, and interns on 38 local campuses in Oklahoma that make Baptist Collegiate Ministries possible. Parkview supports BCM statewide by giving to the Cooperate program, but we also provide direct financial support to the local BCM Chapters.

Meals are coordinated and provided to the students who attend BCM at The University of Tulsa and Tulsa Community College.

National Missions

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8

Support of the Cooperative Program through Parkview Baptist Church enables more 5200 missionaries in North America to live, work and evangelize in this part of the globe. In addition, our financial gifts help support six Southern Baptist seminaries educating over 16,000 future pastors, missionaries and religious leaders.
Below you will see some of the ways in which we are involved in our continent.
North American Mission Board
The North American Mission Board exists to work with churches, associations and state conventions in mobilizing Southern Baptists as a missional force to impact North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and church planting. They accomplish this through  Send North America, a national strategy for mobilizing churches to plant churches and mobilizing church planters and other missionaries to assist with those efforts. Parkview partners with the NAMB through the Southern Baptist cooperative program.

New York City

After 10 years of youth ministry, Jordan & Becky Sauceda felt the call to something new; through praying and fasting, the Saucedas felt that had God drawn them to the Bronx because of its diversity of nations that are represented and lack of gospel-centered churches. They are currently working on building a core team of members, researching the community, and forming relationships with locals in the neighborhood. Their specific neighborhood, Pelham Parkway, was historically Jewish, but is now one of the most culturally diverse corners in NYC. Parkview supports the Sauceda's financially and partners with them to take annual mission trips to NYC to assist in their work in the Bronx. 

Sturgis, SD

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is an American motorcycle rally held annually in Sturgis, South Dakota, usually the first full week of August.  Parkview members team up in an incredible opportunity to be a witness at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.  In past years this Rally has brought any where from 400,000 - 500,000 visitors. This mission trip will focus on personal evangelism to vendors and visitors to the rally.  We will be working in the Sturgis Motorcycle Giveaway tent sponsored by the Dakota Baptist Convention and the North American Mission Board.  The team will also prayerwalk the streets of Sturgis for a couple of hours each day and give away New Testament Bibles.

International Outreach

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8
Parkview believes in missions that impact not only the local, state and regional areas of North America but also the international countries of our world. We are working with thousands of other churches to support approximately 5300 missionaries impacting more than 1100 people groups around the world.

Vine & Branches
Parkview’s Sewing Seeds Ministry has been working with the Biblioteca and the Dunamis Church since 2013. Parkview now serves alongside the Vine & Branches and Dunamis Church in Piedras Negras to reach their growing community.  The two-fold vision for our ministry there:
  1. Evangelize the women and children through sewing, cooking, children’s activities and Bible studies.
  2.  Continue building projects to expand the Dunamis church facility and connect new believers to this body of believers.
Peru
Parkview partners with the church in Peru by sending teams to do both evangelical and medical missions. We have been part of planting many churches around the country and have seen hundreds of people come to know the Lord on these trips. The churches we work with do an excellent job following up with these people to help get them plugged in and continue their discipleship. We plan for two trips each year to Peru. The first trip involves a lot of ministry for children, including Vacation Bible School and sharing the gospel in public schools. We also work all day to put on crusades at night and do everything possible to help the local churches we are working with. The second trip we take is in October. This is a medical mission in the middle of the jungle. Our medical mission like everything we do in Peru is evangelical and in partnership with the local churches.
