About John 3:16 Mission
At any given moment, there are nearly 1,000 Tulsa residents living on the streets. Men. Women. Children. These people are residents of our city — members of our community — living without reliable access to shelter and meals. Regardless of the why, the reasons that put them there, it is clear that our brothers and sisters need our help.With the help of the community, John 3:16 Mission extends helping hands to those in need. The heart of John 3:16 Mission is about showing Biblical hospitality, restorative care, generosity, and -- above all -- love to those whom Christ called “the least of these…my brothers and sisters” (Matthew 25:35). The mission is simple: help the homeless and at-risk reclaim their lives and restore hope in their hearts.
