Advancing the Kingdom of God
Missions
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…  Matthew 28:19

Our members are equipped to use their spiritual gifts to advance the Kingdom of God at home and abroad, thus fulfilling our mission of discipling the church to impact the world.

It is through Missions that we radically experience God’s life-transforming power in the lives of so many. The outpouring of our faith through good works allows individuals, families and communities to experience God’s saving grace and the benefits of His Kingdom.

Members participate in short and long-term mission projects, providing labor, Christian education, healthcare, Bible studies, Bible translation, worship services, and more with the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." ~ Acts 1:8

Youth Missions
Missions partners with the Next Level Youth Ministry to deepen the discipleship experience of our young people, making them visible and verbal followers of Jesus Christ. Consistent with 1 Corinthians 12:12-31, it is our desire to have our youth understand they are in fact a part of this great body, and God has designed opportunities in which they are called to work! Our youth are exposed to and participate in a variety of good works that include: farming, refurbishing houses, community service and campus projects, all lending opportunities to demonstrate and share the Gospel.

Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
Perspectives BookletsPerspectives is a 15-week course which explores the history, challenges and future of God’s global movement to reach all mankind with the Gospel. Perspectives helps believers from all walks of life see how they can get threaded into God’s story of redeeming people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to Himself. From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus Christ to the early church, and Constantine to today, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world evangelization remain today. It isn’t a class about missions, but a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.


Give to Missions
Give to Mission Trips
Short-term mission trips sponsored by OCBF are financed through gifts from interested individuals. Those going on short-term mission trips are encouraged to enlist prayer and financial support from family, friends, and other connections.

If you are contacted by a GO-er, please prayerfully consider how God might help you to support that person. Whether you choose prayer, finances, needed supplies, connections to others who may pray or give, and/or some other area unique to the individual’s or team’s ministry, all is important to the overall success of the team.

If you desire to give a financial gift to an individual or one of the teams, please make your check payable to Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. You may give your check to the supported individual for handling or mail your check to:

Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Missions
1808 W. Camp Wisdom Road
Dallas, Texas 75232

If you mail the check to missions, please sure to include a separate note with the name of the individual you are supporting.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not put your check in the regular offering as it may not be credited to the missions account.

Give Regularly to Missions
A passion for missions is built into OCBF’s DNA. We believe in church-wide financial support of missions through a portion of our members’ tithes. Your faithful giving allows the church to maintain regular support of our designated missionaries. Missionaries are strategically added to the budget as funds permit.
 
OCBF leadership also encourages members to support missionaries above and beyond their tithes, as God leads. OCBF cannot forward individual gifts to our missionaries; but, you can give to one or more missionaries directly through their sending organizations. The link above also connects to each missionary’s organization where you can choose the giving method that best suits you. Your selected missionary would love to hear of your intentions to give a gift, whether it’s one-time or ongoing.
