John 3:16 Mission

Hope to the Hungry

Reclaiming Lives; Restoring Hope

Hungry & Homeless in Tulsa

Providing physical, emotional and spiritual support for the homeless and at-risk in the Tulsa community since 1952.

In the Name and through the Loving Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, John 3:16 Mission reclaims lives and restores hope to homeless and at-risk men, women and children as it ministers to their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.

For many people, their first experience with the Mission comes about because they are hungry. This basic foundational need, of sustenance, once met, provides hope.

This is the power of one meal. One meal. Removing the obstacle of hunger and the wondering of where the next meal is going to come from provides a stability to begin to work on their other needs. To show them the love of God through love, compassion, grace and relationship.


For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in…

A growing number of those experiencing homelessness and hunger are women and children.
