Furthering the Ministry in Madill

Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children (OBHC) dedicated the new Fellers/Brown residential cottage at Baptist Homes for Girls (BHG) in Madill Thursday, May 11. Nearly 150 people attended the dedication.

“It is going to provide for us a ministry tool we have needed for a long time,” Stephen Wiese, BHG administrator said. “The Lord has led us to finish this and continue in this ministry, with a whole life-cycle of children coming through our campus, from beginning school age, through college.”

Highlighting the evening were former OBHC President Tony Kennedy and former BHG Administrator Art Brown, as they shared the history and leap of faith taken to grow and expand the ministry of BHG in Madill.
