Local churches partnering with senior living communities in their neighborhoods to meet residents’ spiritual needs
Are there seniors in your local comunity that could benefit from the love of Jesus Christ? Baptist Village Communities (BVC) desires to partner with you through LINC®.
The goal of LINC® (Loving, Inspiring, Nurturing, Caring) is to give every Oklahoma Southern Baptist church the opportunity and knowledge to extend their current ministry in their community. Whether you feel led to begin ministering to health center or you are enhancing a pre-existing ministry, LINC® can assist your church by providing training, resources and support.
First, contact BVC and choose “LINC®” as your area of interest. Then, a LINC® chaplain consultant will assist your church in organizing and training a ministry team and building a fruitful relationship. The chaplain consultant will work with senior living community staff to open doors and tailor your ministry to meet the residents’ needs. Allow LINC® to help equip you to meet the spiritual and emotional needs to health center and senior living community residents, resident families and community staff.
“Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:32
Comprehensive LINC® training workshops are offered throughout the year across Oklahoma. All training sessions are open to the public.
