TIBC Starts ‘Building Renovation’ and FundRaising Campaign

TIBC has started the refurbishment of the existing building and the fund allocation and raising for renovations and expansions. The need for building refurbishment has come upon us as our building has deteriorated in certain areas. There is also a need for more classrooms, children’s rooms, and an office for new Associate Pastor Eddie. TIBC has started the fundraising campaign to raise funds for future expansion. Also, the exterior building refurbishment has started and will be completed by this fall. Any questions regarding this can be directed to Pastor Ted Lam.

TIBC calls Eddie Clark as Associate Pastor – ordination service to follow

Eddie and Emily Clark joined TIBC earlier this year. They have 3 children, whom were all born in SE Asia, where they served as missionaries for over 10 years. 

The church unanimously decided to call Eddie to church leadership effective Sept 1, with ordination service to be conducted by Pastor Ted Lam on Sunday Oct 9th 2pm. Join us in September as we welcome Pastor Eddie. Eddie will serve as Associate Pastor, and focus on areas of ministry to be determined. Although Eddie is fluent in Mandarin, he will work closely with the English congregation. This gives TIBC the flexibility of having two bilingual ministers on staff, the first time in its history.

TIBC hosting Taiwanese Orphanage Youth Choir for a special concert on Aug 9th

TIBC is privileged to jointly host the Children’s Mountain Home Choir- a Taiwanese orphanage Children’s Choir- for a special concert on Aug 9th with Sister church ACBC. 

This orphanage youth choir tours the world with their voices, and we are privileged to have them in for a musical treat in Tulsa, OK. 

It was a special treat to have the three Tulsa area Chinese churches gather together in attendance to listen to the stories and songs of these children. 

International Father of the Year for 2016 is….

Dr. Christopher Zaino

Chris was and still is a Father to many international children, having been a missionary to China, where he met his wife Siu Yuk, and gave birth to his two daughters Kereen and Janice. Chris’ life’s work impacted the lives of the disadvantaged children in Asia and the families that learned from Chris and his physical therapy team as well as the children he worked with as a pediatric physical therapist at St Francis Hospital. On Father’s Day June 19, 2016, Tulsa International Baptist Church is pleased to honor our late church member, brother, role model, and father to us all as TIBC’s 2016 International Father of the Year.

Dr. Zaino went to be with his Father in heaven on Friday, June 17, 2016 at 5:10pm. He passed peacefully at home with family and friends at his side.

Accepting the award on The family’s behalf was “everyone’s favorite son” DaLi Sun. Please continue to keep the Zaino family in your prayers.
