Eagle Scouts Bless John 3:16 Mission

Projects Aid Homeless and At-Risk

Anyone familiar with Scouts BSA  (Formerly Boy Scouts) knows that young scouts have to complete a significant community service project to achieve the ultimate rank of Eagle Scout. Only a few scouts ever achieve this high accomplishment.
Thanks to Scout Troop 1 (based in First Presbyterian Church of downtown Tulsa), and Scout Leader Bob Beers, John 3:16 Mission has been the beneficiary of many Eagle Scout projects over recent years. These important projects have included benches, tables, swings, a pond-side gazebo, raised bed gardens and, most recently, a beautiful outdoor chapel in the woods.

A Place to Pray

The chapel, completed in late summer was the project of Eagle Scout Conner Wheeler, sits in a clearing in the woods at the Mission’s Refuge location (575 N. 39th W. Ave.) and includes a cross and plenty of benches. The Mission plans to use this beautiful site for prayer and worship services for men and women who are in its residential recovery programs.
The Mission wishes to thank Troop 1 for its superb work and commitment to improving the lives of those in the Mission’s care!
