It all started…

in 1968, when Rev. Mac Thompson was appointed as the Oklahoma City Urban Minister. This was a new position in which Mac was charged to work with churches and agencies in the inner city of Oklahoma City. Rev. Thompson wrote: “In a large sense, I will be a Staff Member-at-Large to all the churches in the greater Oklahoma City area.” From this beginning, and at various locations in the metropolitan area, Rev. Thompson’s vision of serving those in the shadows grew.

The Heritage Society recognizes those individuals who have included Skyline Urban Ministry in their will and/or contributed to the organization by making a planned gift via a charitable trust, IRA, real or personal property or life insurance, or gift to one of our endowment funds.  Those gifts have built upon the founding work of Rev. Thompson, and have paved the way for who we are now, and will sustain us into the future filling the gaps for those who live in the shadow of the Oklahoma City skyline.

Heritage Society members receive VIP passes to the pre- event and our recognized at Skyline’s annual fundraising gala. We would love for you to join these dedicated stewards. There are many ways to support Skyline through your estate plans, including a specific sum, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate after expenses and gifts to loved ones. For more information, contact our office (405-600-9247 or dingraham@skylineurbanministry.org) and we will set a time to meet with you further, or click one of the links below.
