Other outreach efforts include:
Black said church members will be distributing the brochures and other materials in Bricktown and to friends, family and co-workers when the Thunder comes up in conversations.
“They can put one of those in someone's hands and let the Holy Spirit take it from there,” he said.
The Rev. Dave Evans, senior pastor of Highland Baptist Church in Moore, said several men at his church are already planning to invite people to playoff watch parties. He said the church members will have the Sports Spectrum magazine and other material to present to guests as they enjoy the game.
“This will be an opportunity to build a bridge out in the community,” Evans said.
He said the outreach is another way to help others along in their faith journey, allowing Baptist volunteers to be part of a team that shares the gospel in a different venue.
“'I believe we're (Thunder) going to make it all the way and I believe in Christ,” Kinnaird said.
“We need hope and that's really what this is — a message of hope.”
