The goal for Project Christmas 2017 is $50,000. We will give a portion of the money to four local missions and to build a water well in Nicaragua. The rest will be kept to do projects and support events at each of the missions through 2018. Check back each week throughout November as we highlight each of the local missions we'll be supporting through Project Christmas. If you would like to support Project Christmas and the local missions, you can do that below. Please be sure under the "giving type" to select Project Christmas. If you are interested in hearing more on Project Christmas or the Local Missions please contact Nathan at email@example.com.
Vida Victoriosa is a mostly hispanic church in south OKC that is pastored by Martin and Clarissa Urbina. Martin and Clarissa basically volunteer their time to the church because they receive no compensation from it. They both work full-time jobs to live on (Martin at Walmart and Clarissa as a school teacher throughout the year and a nurses aide during the summer). They have a heart for Jesus and to reach the poor among them with the gospel. Martin leads the adult ministries, and Clarissa leads the children’s ministry. They offer food and school supplies and other needs to their community. Their building is old and has many issues, so along with events throughout the year, we hope to help repair it with the funds we collect and with the manpower provided by Summit.
OKC Dream Center is located at Inner City Church in south OKC. This ministry is led by Chase Parsons. They work hard to impact the poor and needy in their community by providing food, clothing, community development, hope, etc. They also have a “live-in” center for men who are trying to get back on their feet - most after going through rehab of some kind. They have events throughout the year and provide services monthly through their food pantry and clothes closet, and they are constantly looking for ways to expose the people in their community to the gospel on their campus. The center for men is in need of repairs and updates, so we hope to help with this through funding and manpower from Summit.
