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.
Church Debt Elimination - At our current payment rate, our debt is scheduled to be paid off sometime during 2021. Beginning with Easter 2017, we are putting 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 December 3, A New Day at South Tulsa has resulted in pledges of over $348K. Non-pledged giving is over $360K so far. The $480K received so far was applied to our loan principle. Loan is currently valued under $1.1 million. We closed on our donated house and with these proceeds (over $500K), pledged gifts plus budgeted debt payments, we are on target to pay off debt by the end of 2018 or before. Financial stewardship training is completed for over 50 church families and community members. Over half dozen community members finished a course this semester.
Personal and Family Financial Training from Scripture - We also 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 offering several segments of Financial Peace University© (FPU) and Financial Freedom (FF) so that families can also begin to experience debt elimination and financial freedom alongside our church emphasis. Consider Financial Freedom (FF) if you have previously attended FPU. Here is a testimony to this training-
