Discover your purpose in the world.
To describe the focus of theChurchat, we use the invented term “glocal”—the merging of global and local. We believe that God’s mission is both global and local, therefore ours must be too. Fortunately, we live in an age where even a local church can have a global impact. For this reason, we are asking you to help us bring local resources to global solutions for the sake of the Gospel. We all have a ministry in the church and a mission in the world.

Local Mission Opportunities
The tC mission team would love to help you find your purpose in the world through our tC ministries and partnerships with organizations in our city.
tC has a strategic local mission effort in the Kendall-Whittier Neighborhood, where our tC Downtown campus is located. Serving together with partners in the Growing Together initiative, all theChurchat churches are able to collectively have a deep impact with families in the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood.
Opportunities to Serve in Kendall-Whittier
Habitat for Humanity: For the next several years Habitat is focusing all of their efforts in Kendall-Whittier. tC would love to welcome all of our new neighbors through Habitat with a welcome basket of household essentials. This is a great opportunity for a family or a Community group to do together.
Reading Partners: tC partners with the Reading Partner organization to help fill the need for Reading Partners in the two elementary schools in this neighborhood. Volunteers go to the schools once a week and read with a child for an hour.
Communities in Schools: tC partners with Communities in Schools to help support the needs of the schools in the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood. Opportunities include being a part of teams that decorate teacher lounges, helping cook and serve meals for teachers, or volunteering at school events.
Talk, Read, Sing: Tulsa's “Talking is Teaching: Talk, Read, Sing,” brings together parents and community partners to improve children’s brain development and early learning. On average, a child from a family experiencing poverty has acquired 500 words by the age of four, compared to 1,100 words for a child from a high income family. The Church at Downtown hosts a Talk, Read, Sing event once a month. Volunteer opportunities include helping serve guests food and being a part of a hostess team.
Spanish speakers ministry: Because the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood has a high percentage of families who are Spanish speakers, we are excited to offer live Spanish translation in our 11 o'clock Sunday morning service at The Church at Downtown. If you speak and/or read Spanish, we have many opportunities for you to serve as we minister to this neighborhood.
JOBS FOR LIFE (JFL) is a ministry used around the world by churches to address the devastating effects of unemployment and poverty by helping men and women experience the dignity of work—through honest relationships, mentoring, Biblically-based training, and an ongoing community of support. Volunteer opportunities include mentoring students, providing a meal for a class, and serving on a hostess team. JFL classes are currently held at The Church at Downtown. If you are interested in helping bring this ministry to your campus, we would love to talk to you about helping us grow this ministry all across our city through our churches.
