Skyline Urban Ministry

Impacting lives, restoring dignity and empowering those in need.



Skyline Urban Ministry is located in the shadow of the prosperous and successful downtown Oklahoma City skyline. Our focus is on those who live in that shadow and on those who live in poverty and need throughout our state.

Working in tandem with the local United Methodist churches, United Way, and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Skyline's goal is to establish an atmosphere of respect and empathy while providing groceries, meals, clothing, eye exams and dignity to Oklahomans struggling with resources.  Our vision is to nurture a new level of compassion and respect for those living on the margins by promoting a change in heart through relationships built by serving shoulder-to-shoulder with one another.

Skyline Urban Ministry was established in 1969 and incorporated in 1974 as a mission outreach of the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church. Founder MacKenzie Thompson saw much of his city in poverty and decided to start an organization that could practically alleviate this harsh reality. He and other members of his church, family, and neighborhood set out to create a relationship based mission that could help both the physical and societal needs of their clients. With an original emphasis on the Native American population, Skyline's founders worked with tribal leaders, local church leaders, and social services to aid Native Americans and other poverty stricken groups in the community. When Native Americans incorporated their own tribal social services, Skyline continued to serve those in need.

Continuing to operate in Oklahoma City, Skyline's mission has always been to aid the urban population/working poor, children and senior citizens. We continue to focus on the original goals of the founders. What started as a one room food pantry blossomed into a full service organization which provides food, clothing, eye exams, discounted glasses, school uniforms, and meals for senior citizens. Over forty years later, our Food Resource Center now serves over 20,000 Oklahomans and over 171,600 meals per year. Our organization is proud to be a United Way partner. Thanks to the help of a network of volunteers and donors, Skyline continues to impact the families of its community who need it most.
