Church Planting: We believe God has called us to be a church planting church. One of the long-term visions for Mercyview is to be a hub for regional church multiplication and training. To this end, we have a church planting residency to train men to plant indigenous churches. You can find out more information on that here. We also support church planting locally and globally, through prayer and financial support, as well as in advisory roles. Our current partnerships include:
Tulsa (Jerusalem): Our A1:8 Team spearheads our church-wide local mission efforts. They are a team of volunteers that represent Mercyview as a whole and are charged with mobilizing Mercyview for strategic, scalable missional causes through which they can be a long-term blessing to the social and spiritual needs of Tulsa. Below are our current Mercy and Justice Pipelines, Stand in the Gap and MV's International Culture Exchange, along with our current partnerships.
- Stand in the Gap - Stand in the Gap ministries seeks to partner volunteers from local churches with youth and young adults in the foster care system in mentoring relationships. Mercyview has partnered with Stand in the Gap to connect our people with youth or young in the foster care system.
- Culture Exchange is seeking to engage international students and immigrants in our city with the Gospel. We believe that God has brought hundreds of international people to our city in order that they may seek Him and find Him.
- International Community Outreach
Stateside (Judea + Samaria)
Global (Ends of the Earth): Mercyview desires to be a long-term blessing to the social and spiritual needs to “the ends of the earth.” Mercyview is pursuing long-term global mission initiatives that will bring the gospel to some of the most difficult places in the world in both word and deed, through prayer and financial support, as well as personal participation in the mission by our own Mercyview partners. Mercyview's Advocacy Teams provide ongoing support to our partners serving in sensitive areas around the globe.
The A1:8 Team exist for the purpose of pursuing God's heart for all peoples as revealed in all of Scripture. Acts 1:8 serves as our model, "but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
