We are committed to mobilizing the Church on behalf of international refugees who have become our neighbors in Oklahoma City. It is our firm belief that if the refugee community has individuals living within it who offer friendship, commitment, and true discipleship - our new neighbors will thrive in America. We are committed to humbling ourselves in service and friendship, knowing we have much to gain and much to learn.

-Brad and Kim Bandy, Founders of The Spero Project


The Common is a program of The Spero Project, a local 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to mobilize the Church by offering entry points to partnering with under­ resourced communities.

The Common is led by some of The Spero Project Staff Team who are excited to learn from and connect with the international refugee community and love seeing the Church of Oklahoma City be great neighbors as well!
