Saint Paul Gives Back to the Lazarus Community

Saint Paul School of Theology has adopted the Lazarus Community in Oklahoma City as our Spring 2024 Missional Outreach. It is exciting to see God’s work through the hands and feet of Bo Ireland (2017) and Alanna Ireland (2023), as well as current MDIV students Olivia Ankrom, Brayan Martinez, and Gena Walton. The Lazarus Community works to lift up families experiencing homelessness through faith, community, and advocacy. Learn more about the Lazarus Community, its inspirational story, and how you can get involved at 

“Each week at the Lazarus Community we create a place of resurrection where persons whom many consider to be as good as dead, the least, lost, broken, afflicted, and addicted find a place in community. Lazarus Community operates a drop-in center that offers an emergency food kit (use the QR code to see how you can help), hygiene, showers, mental health, pastoral care, hot meals, and a place to experience God’s wide embrace in worship and in transitional living. We are grateful to Saint Paul School of Theology for the partnership in ministry and in practice of a Lazarus story (John 11:1-44) as the dead are raised to life and the community is empowered to move from disappointment and grief to celebration and restoration!” – alum Rev. Bo Ireland ’17, Executive Director of Lazarus Community
