A New Day at South Tulsa is our church’s strategy to pay off our existing debt by the end of 2018, if not before.
At South Tulsa, we believe God has called us to be excellent stewards, or managers, of all the resources with which we have been blessed. For the last several years, our church has been faithfully paying off debt that was obtained as a result of completing our current campus. We have been blessed with wonderful facilities, and every square inch has been dedicated to doing God’s Kingdom work each day of the week.
"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)
Church Debt Elimination - At our current payment rate, our debt is scheduled to be paid off sometime during 2021. On Easter 2017, we put into action a plan to pay off our current debt (beginning at around $1,850,000) in 18 months or less. This will free up some $38,950 monthly in our church budget to go towards missions, ministry programs, and church family needs. Our goal as a church is to eliminate debt and stay out of debt.

UPDATE - As of February 23, A New Day at South Tulsa has resulted in pledges of over $348,000. Non-pledged giving is over $413,000 so far. The $584,000 received so far was applied to our loan principle, currently valued at $423,200. We closed on our donated house and the proceeds ($500K) were applied to our loan. With the pledged gifts, plus budgeted debt payments, we are on target to pay off debt by the end of 2018 or before. Financial stewardship training has been completed by over 56 church families and community members. Our next Financial Peace University began Sunday, February 18, with over 13 participants
Personal and Family Financial Training from Scripture - We know that many families in our church and in our community are also likely struggling with debt constraints. So, as a part of A New Day at South Tulsa, we are offered Financial Freedom (FF) and continue to offer Financial Peace University© (FPU) so that families can also begin to experience debt elimination and financial freedom alongside our church emphasis. Here is a testimony to this training.
