About Tulsa

Tulsa provides a rich local context for Phillips' work of cultivating vital congregations, vital communities, vital conversations, and the public good.

Tulsa is consistently ranked among the most livable cities in the U.S. Rents and property values are relatively economical. Unemployment is low. The sun shines over 200 days per year (okay, full disclosure: it can get really HOT during the summer).

HuffPost Travel recently published its 20 reasons why Tulsa is a happening city (they also point out that the people couldn't be nicer).

If your context is a small town, you’ll find Tulsa to be a manageable city.

If your context is big city, you’ll find a much greater variety of cultural attractions than you might have guessed for a city Tulsa’s size.

Downtown Tulsa, renowned for many examples of Art Deco style, is in the midst of a wonderful renaissance.

Tulsa is also a place of contrasts.

  • One of the most prominent Pentecostal-oriented universities in the world and the largest Unitarian-Universalist congregation in North America are both here.
  • Many Christian megachurches occupy sites in Tulsa and surrounding areas, sharing the community with Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Pagan, Native American, and other congregations.
  • The worst race riot in U.S. history occurred in Tulsa in 1921. The Greenwood District is both a reminder of that event and a sign of hope, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. parade in Tulsa is one of the largest in the U.S.
  • Oklahoma, like many states, struggles with history, equality, and justice; but Tulsa is the home of one of the strongest diversity and justice organizations in the country, The Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice, of a leading GLBTQ advocacy center, OK Equality Center, and of 30 year old interfaith conversations.

Tulsa provides a rich context for Phillips' work, and a great place for us to call “home.”
