What We Do

Oklahoma Lutherans faithfully  worship, educate, care for others and reach out to all people with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  And we have fun through fellowship and a wide variety of activities!  Learn more about our missionsministry, evangelism and stewardship efforts by exploring this website.   Take a few minutes to review the stories and media contributed by our member congregations.  And don’t miss taking a look at the exciting Education and Youth opportunities for children and young people summarized on this site.  We thank God that He has counted us worthy to serve Him through our varied landscapes in unique ways within the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. 

The district diligently works to plant new congregations while providing revitalization efforts for older and more rural congregations. Equipped with the effectual Word of God which is the Sword of the Spirit, many new people groups are being touched with Christ’s grace. In the Western Region, which includes the Panhandle, outreach encompasses the Burmese Karen. In the Central Region of Oklahoma, the Hispanic ministry continues to grow and flourish, and a district-called Islamic outreach pastor is in place for one-on-one witnessing primarily in the Oklahoma City metro area. In the Eastern Region, which includes the Tulsa metro area, spiritual doors miraculously open as outreach continues among the Hispanic, the Liberian, and the Hmong people.  And in southeastern Oklahoma, a prison ministry continues to bring blessings to the Oklahoma State Prison at McAlester.

Three campus ministries are active in Norman (University of Oklahoma), Stillwater (Oklahoma State University), Tulsa (The University of Tulsa). The impact from these ministries has included baptisms, confirmations, marriages and the directing of students into various church vocations of deaconess, teacher, DCE and pastor. 34 vicars have served in the district along with student peer ministers. English as a Second Language and International Student Ministries on campus have also brought the Gospel to various cultural and people groups.

In Lawton, the ministry to the Armed Forces has continued at the U.S. Army Training Center at Ft. Sill.
