“The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” These are the words Jesus spoke to his disciples before sending them forth to spread the good news of God’s kingdom of grace. John, the Revelator saw in vision, Jesus coming in the clouds of glory reaping the harvest of the earth. At Oklahoma Academy, we believe that coming to be eminent, and that we may have a part in preparing youth in these last days to be workers for such a harvest. We understand that this preparation “means more than the pursual of a certain course of study.” “It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers.” (Education p.13)
We seek to work with young people who are excited about their personal role in fulfilling the great commission. Our mission is to help them grow physically, mentally and spiritually to be prepared to take up the work God calls them to do.
