Southwest Oklahoma District

Church of the Nazarene


Welcome to SWOK! We need you to know that we are completely committed to the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ here in the southwest part of Oklahoma and around the world. Everything we do is intended to extend the Kingdom of God, through the power of the Spirit. We do this by enabling, supporting, resourcing, enriching and equipping pastors as well as parishioners in the local church. We also extend this Kingdom by investing in Children and Youth Ministries, Compassionate Ministries, Campus Ministries, and Camping Ministries. All of these things with the same simple purpose . . . to further the mission of Jesus in the world. Will you join us?

ATTENTION - Pastors with Local Licensed Ministers


JANUARY 24, 2017


    If you have someone in your church who has held a local license for at least a year, meets the minimum studies requirement and is interested in pursuing a District Minister’s License, please make sure you get contact information to the District Resource Center just as soon as possible.  It is important that this information be given to the office now in order for the candidate to receive necessary forms and information prior to the interview day.

    If you have a person currently holding a District Minister’s License, it would be helpful if you could encourage them to be sure they have completed the necessary course work due at the time of their interview.  And, be sure they attend the mandatory meeting with the Ministerial Studies on November 6th, prior to the All-District Worship Service.

    If you have any questions, please contact Sharon at 405-256-6766 or
