There are gaps in our society: places where families and communities have failed. As God’s people, there is only one response to the gap.

Stand in it.


At Stand in the Gap, we do not offer handouts. Instead, through healthy relationships, education, and prayer, Oklahomans in need are empowered to break unhealthy patterns in their lives and achieve self-reliance.


The idea is simple. At Stand in the Gap, we connect people in need with people who care.

“After a lifetime of being overlooked, it only took a few months for my Stand in the Gap team to really see me.”


“When we meet together and I feel that love that is unconditional…it makes my heart whole. It makes me feel like the daughter that God came for me to be.”



So many people want to make a difference in this world, but we don’t know where to start, or maybe we’ve been burned by past experiences. In 1997, two friends and I set out to see if we could develop a repeatable model to “love our neighbors.” After many years and various approaches, Stand in the Gap has become a safe, time-tested model that allows people to know what it feels like to love and be loved.

We are ready for you. Will you join us?
