Meanwhile, Holly McCray with the conference's department of communications said it is important to note that delegates will be able to put the conference's mission theme into action on Wednesday by participating in several mission projects.

She said the mission projects will benefit organizations such as the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Rebuilding Together, Positive Tomorrows, Neighborhood Services Organization, Hillcrest Fuente De Vida/Studio 222, Circle of Care/Child Share, Exodus House and Mustard Seed Development Corporation.

Several delegate groups will tour local nonprofits like The Education and Employment Ministry known as TEEM, Skyline Urban Ministries and Infant Crisis Services.
