When it comes to growing his church and building his congregation, Pastor Mark Sinor has a simple philosophy: “When your dreams become separate from God’s dreams, there is no success.” So Pastor Sinor and North Pointe Baptist Church decided to put their fate in God’s hands, moving from their established location to a new facility just one and a half miles away. The move was short, but it positioned North Pointe as a leading community church in the small city of Deer Creek, just west of Edmond, Oklahoma.
The first phase of the building project was initiated in March 2012 through a loan from The Baptist Foundation of Oklahoma. When space became an issue, North Pointe teamed up with The Foundation to construct a worship center and an entire wing of children’s facilities. Foundation funding also allowed the church to invest in new lighting and sound equipment that takes the worship experience to an entirely new level. As North Pointe listens to God’s direction on how to impact the community, the church has faith that God will open doors to other ministry opportunities. Speaking about the future of his church, Pastor Sinor stated, “I want to go and do and be whatever God wants us to be and nothing more.”
