Welcome 

Thank you for visiting our website!

What's an association?

Good question! It's a group of churches that cooperate together for ministry and missions. They do this voluntarily on a local level, knowing that together we can do more than working alone. Some benefits for a church that's part of an association are: fellowship with other churches, cooperative missions and ministry events and projects, and knowing what you're getting when you go to one of the churches in terms of their beliefs (doctrine).

How about Cherokee Strip Association?

Our name goes back to the Land Run of 1893 when much of this area of Oklahoma was settled (in one day!). Our association is spread out over 6 counties that were a part of that original land run. At present, there are 29 churches in our association, from Medford in the north to Perry in the south to Fairview on the west and Billings on the east [see maps under Info Center Tab].

What if I want to visit a church?

Many of our churches have websites that give their location and times of services, Sunday School/small groups, etc. However, if you can't find the pertinent info for the church you want to visit, please give us a call here at (580)234-2512. Guests are always welcome at our churches. Although it might be a little intimidating to go to a new church for the first time, you'll find folks eager to help you feel at home.

Director of Missions

  • Nothing Less Conference

    We have a tremendous opportunity right here in our association for your church to have a strong kick off to your Fall Bible Group & Sunday School ministries, specifically with your Leaders in mind!

    Our “Nothing Less” Conference is geared to further equip and enrich your group leaders as they minister in what is more than likely your church’s single largest weekly ministry impact.

    We challenge you to bring all, or as many as can, of your Bible Group Leaders and Sunday School teachers to FBC Enid, on Saturday, August 25, from 9:00am-12:00pm for our association’s “Nothing Less” Conference. 

    This event is being sponsored through our Cherokee Strip association in connection with the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, and thus is free of charge to you, through our cooperative giving efforts.

    Join others in enriching our group ministry impact in our own local contexts both through large group teaching sessions and breakouts covering a range of topics to help strengthen your leaders.

    Make plans with your group & class leaders now to join us Saturday morning, August 25, from 9:00 a.m. at FBC Enid. 

    Nursery will be available (infant-preschool) with a reservation by Aug. 17th. Call 234-2512 for nursery reservation.

     

  • Meet our new BCM Director

    Justin is passionate about ministering to college students, connecting them to local churches, and equipping them for lifelong ministry. His desire is to raise up a group of young adults who have a deep love for Jesus, a desire to be unified with other believers, and a commitment to using each of their gifts/passions to make Christ known. Justin has spent most of his life in Claremore, OK. He graduated from Rogers State University in 2014, receiving a degree in Social Entrepreneurship. He then served as the College Pastor at First Baptist Church in Claremore, OK for 4 years. 

    He married Elizabeth Romaine in 2017. Elizabeth currently works as a nurse. The two met while in college, and then served alongside each other in their local college ministry. It was there that God gave them both a deep love for walking alongside college students. Justin recently moved to Enid, OK to continue collegiate ministry at NOC, as well as help plant Open Door Church.

    In his free time, he loves skateboarding, live music, camping, editing videos, and anything that involves coffee.

  • Small Town Jesus Conference

    Small towns are beautiful places, full of unique culture, community, and strength. But often, despite the popular opinion that they are blissful and problem-free, these same small towns are also full of brokenness, hopelessness, and despair.

    This makes small towns wide open mission fields, ripe for Gospel ministry. Too often, however, these same places are neglected by church planters, networks, ministries, & leaders. We need to hear again the call to take the gospel everywhere, to places big or small, because that is what Jesus told us to do. We need to take the gospel to small towns, because Jesus loves small towns.

    The Small Town Jesus Conference is a 2-day gathering designed to fill you with faith and help equip you for rural ministry. Our hope is that you’d leave having been built up, and strengthened with a bigger vision for your context.
