Senior Adults


Today, older adults are mobile, missional, and seeking ways to apply their talents and gifts. Some are retired and others are not. Many of the 65+ adults are active and committed Christians still able to make a significant impact in the lives of others. For this reason, the BGCO is here to assist churches to equip older adults with skills to make a difference in their family, church and community for the Glory of God.

The Oklahoma Baptist senior adult ministry exists to assist Southern Baptist churches and associations as they encourage, enlist and engage senior adults to fulfill:

  • The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20)
  • The Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-38)
