Oklahoma City » From the beginning, with a mission in downtown Oklahoma City serving 120-140 people, to a factory in Del City operating in conjunction with the Oklahoma City drug court, and now a 40-acre farm, the City of Hope/Feeding the Broken Hearted ministry has seen God bless abundantly. 

Our community focus is to lovingly serve the homeless and help others overcome addictions through Christ and to develop a daily relationship with Him. A typical day at City of Hope begins with Bible study and prayer. Attendance at all evening services and Sabbath morning worship service is required, but also welcomed. Many begin participating in worship services at Oklahoma International Seventh-day Adventist Church and many of our new family members are baptized after a few months in our program. They learn first and foremost that Jesus Christ is their Savior, Helper, Lord, and Master. They learn to ask for the grace of God to strengthen them in overcoming addictions and to keep them from falling into sin. They teach, serve, pray for, and lift each other up. They lovingly hold one another accountable, a concept most of them have never experienced. The sole purpose of this ministry is for Jesus to rehabilitate the minds and bodies of individuals who have abused them so much no one wants to work with them anymore. We don’t give up on them; there is always hope!
