ServeOK serves as a bridge to connect the Christian community with needs in central Oklahoma.

Background In February of 2007 a handful of Christian women contemplated: “What would happen if Christians took what they had gained from their many Bible Studies and prayer groups and put that knowledge back into the community with hands-on zeal?" Revive, Inc. (a 501c3 non-profit) was formed from that vision. In 2015, we began operating under the name ServeOK (Revive Inc dba ServeOK).  ServeOK exists to transform our community by connecting volunteers with the needs of central Oklahoma.  We successfully began accomplishing this through conferences and events such as a bus tour to area compassionate care organizations to shed light on the many opportunities to help others. We encourage area churches to join forces with key compassionate care groups to provide needed volunteers, joining their hearts, time and God given gifts to greatly affect the area they live in caring for those in need. 

ServeOK, hosts Compassionate Care Gatherings, connecting over 50 Compassionate Care Groups through networking each month. While our website,, is uniting over 60 non-profits and churches through a free, high functioning web platform. Both of these initiatives along with our newsletters, our website's resource directory and monthly radio interviews increase collaboration in serving the needs of central Oklahoma.  We are making progress in mobilizing central Oklahoma to serve area needs year round.  Our goal is to connect all Compassionate Care Groups in central Oklahoma through these initiatives, which encourage connections for the non-profits, churches and volunteers to collaborate, communicate and cooperate to better serve the public. ServeOK has the capability to connect these groups on many levels beginning with offers of resources to each other, mobilizing volunteers through church members and community volunteers, a secure sharing of client information to make better, informed decisions and other important benefits internally and externally for each organization. 

Needs Our top needs are funding and further recognition in the community as the resource to connecting volunteers with needs.
CEO/Executive Director Statement God is moving in a marvelous way in this great city and we are humbled by the invitation and the commission to join Him.  Many opportunities are available to help with needs in central Oklahoma and glorify our Lord in the process.  ServeOK is the connecting link to unite volunteers with these needs.
