Metro 1 Ministries (M1M) is first dedicated to winning the lost to Jesus Christ. (Alive in the Spirit) Secondly, M1M is dedicated to bringing spiritual clarity to the Word of God that makes authentic disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ through the working of the Holy Spirit. (Biblical in Doctrine) Thirdly, we want to proclaim this wonderful Gospel to the Tulsa Metro area, Oklahoma, the United States, and around the world. God has called a very dedicated group of individuals and a loving, caring Church Family to complete our excellent team of Ministries for the M1 Family. (Caring in Relationships)



Our Ministerial Staff is made up of a great group of dedicated, Holy Spirit filled, God called men and women of God. They are the team that guides the M1 Church Family along with the Church Boards of each campus and Trustees of each campus under the leadership of Bishop Don Martin. We are thankful for their service to the Lord:
