Annual Report 2021
Letter From Pastor
What a year we have experienced together at SpiritCHURCH! 2021 brought a season of transition, a series of new opportunities, and a sense of togetherness. I doubt we could have imagined the changes, the heartbreaks, the miracles, and the surprises that 2021 would bring. Yet God remains faithful, His promises never fail, and His mercies are new every morning.
A Season of Transition
In April 2021, following eighteen years of extraordinary leadership and anointed ministry, Dr. Darryl and Faith Wootton were elected as Superintendent of the Oklahoma District Council of the Assemblies of God. Their promotion to this new role brought a feeling of uncertainty to our church. But rather than allowing worry or division to ensue, our church community rallied around our mission to share the love, joy, and peace of Jesus Christ with the least, the last, and lost.
On May 23, 2021, this amazing church elected our family as Lead Pastors. Thanks to the strong foundation laid by the Wootton family, SpiritCHURCH continues serving the greater Bartlesville area. It has been our honor to meet you, and we are grateful for all you have done to welcome us to your family.
A Series of New Opportunities
Our church continues to share the love, joy, and peace of Jesus because of people like you who invest financially in this incredible mission. Thank you! Your giving directly changes lives for eternity. Because of your generosity, we now support more local and global missions endeavors than ever before. In 2021, we began supporting missionaries working in Israel, in Muslim communities, and with our troops in Germany. It is wonderful to realize that giving from this church family directly impacts lives around the world.
Your giving allowed us to donate thousands of bags of groceries, provide free haircuts, and host community events. We also partnered with community outreaches like Agape Mission, Hope Clinic, Heart Matters, the Journey Home, the Cottage, the Lighthouse, and numerous others in the Bartlesville area.
A Sense of Togetherness
Of course, the highlight each week is when people say YES to Jesus! Nothing unifies our church family like seeing people commit their lives to Christ. We praise God for the many lives that were surrendered to Jesus in 2021, and we pray many more will accept Him as Savior and Lord in 2022.
We are also united by our commitment to our mission, our passion for the Word of God, our belief in the power of prayer, and our love for one another. In one of His final earthly prayers, Jesus said, “I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” (John 17:20-21) The unity present in this church family continues to be a strong witness for Jesus Christ.
Thank you for being such a vital part of SpiritCHURCH. Let us all remember to keep our fork because we believe the best is yet to come!
To God be the glory,
Dr. Jason & Robyn Fullerton
