Our Story

As the Spirit led and the pastor preached on what would become a lengthy sermon series focusing on Luke 4:18-19, God began to stir the hearts of His people at Henderson Hills Baptist Church.  The question in response was, "If Jesus ministered to spirit, soul and body, what is He calling us to do?"

A team of church members began seeking, praying, and planning.  After 10 months, it was time for ministry to begin and the Ministries of Jesus medical clinic opened in 2001.  In 2005, the counseling component was added, providing services for a need much greater than anticipated.  In 2009, the dental clinic opened, addressing the connection between good oral health and good physical health.  Although these ministries were bearing fruit, it seemed something was missing.  At an evening service a young man wandered in off the street looking for a place of comfort and stumbled into a testimony night about addiction.  Afterward, the man handed a pastor his needle and shared about his addiction and need for help.  With that, God made it clear this was the missing piece at MOJ and in 2009, the recovery ministry began.  
"If Jesus ministered to spirit, soul, and body, as seen in Luke 4:18-19, what is He calling us to do?  What does that look like in the 21st century?"
During 2020-2021, MOJ embarked on a Campaign for Restoring Hope.  This comprehensive campaign raised $1.5 million for renovation and expansion and an additional $2 million for additional staffing needs over the next few years.  God provided in amazing ways and within 2 years (during the pandemic and difficult economic times), the entire $3.5 million had been raised!  All services at MOJ can now double capacity - restoring more hope, to more people in need!  We praise God and we eagerly anticipate what He has in store and how many lives He will impact in the coming years.
Thousands of lives are impacted each year at Ministries of Jesus, all by God's leading and provision. Prayer abounds here and sharing Jesus is our passion. MOJ, along with a partner ministry in south Oklahoma City and a sister clinic in Somotillo, Nicaragua, are impacting lives in desperate need of healing only Jesus can provide in spirit, soul and body.
