About Church

Maybe you know this… maybe you don’t but In Motion is the content platform of Church on the Move in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Pastor Seth Swindall

We put together the church blog category for content related to our church and help answer questions our readers might have about who we are and what we do.

A family of churches in Oklahoma

We are a family of churches with one mission: introducing people to the real Jesus. What does that mean? Well, there are multiple Church on the Move churches in the Tulsa area. We have a church in Broken Arrow, a church in Tulsa, one in Midtown Tulsa, one West of downtown, and we even have two churches located inside two correctional centers in Oklahoma. We know, it’s a lot … but it’s also really cool.

Why all the churches?

We think God has always chosen to work through communities through groups of people committed to Him and each other. For several years, we had Church on the Move campuses around the city that would play a video feed from our “main” campus as their church service. But in 2019, our Lead Pastor, Whit George (you’d know him from the Spirit In Motion podcast), felt like God wanted to do something more in these campuses. He felt like God was saying, THESE SHOULD BE FULL FLEDGED CHURCHES. So, we decided to bring on pastors and leaders whose jobs would be centered around bringing hope to the community.

So, no more videos?

That’s right! No more videos. Each of our churches are … well … churches—with pastors that teach and meet with people, worship teams, and volunteers that are all live, in-person making a difference in the communities they’re in. 

So, with four churches, two prison locations, and a K-12th grade school,  we’re ready to keep making big difference in the Tulsa area, and we’d love for you to be a part of it.

To sum up, Our Church In Motion blog answers our readers’ most common questions about Church on the Move. Questions like,What do you believe about discipleship? Why tithe? Or what are your safety plans? We hope you enjoy the blogs! If you have any questions, email us at info@churchonthemove.com.

About Going Deeper: Exploring the Life of Jesus

Life in Motion is a podcast hosted by Heather George and Jamie Jobe. It’s a show where two best friends talk about life, family, and the hard things we all go through.

Our Going Deeper blogs are all about helping you take scripture and apply it to your life.

Taking the life and teachings of Jesus found in scripture or a church service and using it to change who you are, the decisions you make, and the way you relate to the rest of the world takes time and practice.

So in addition to our weekly church gatherings, we put together In Motion Going Deeper Blogs for you to explore the life of Jesus, better understand your role as a Christ follower, and ultimately start a life that is constantly in motion toward Jesus.

Meeting the real Jesus

We want to help people meet the real Jesus. It’s easy to think if you give God your good behavior, in return He’ll protect you. Or if we read the Bible or say a prayer every now and then, He’ll bless you. Sometimes we end up thinking of God as a sort of vending machine. But to really have a relationship with God, to know Him for real. We find Him to be more than useful, we need to find Him to be beautiful.

We need to find God beautiful.

God desires relationship with you, and there is life in that relationship. God is our creator, and connection to Him is connection to life itself.  In other words, the deepest, most meaningful thing about existence is that we’re connected to this Creator. So to get closer to Him, is like getting closer to the source of life and everything good. It’s like the sun on a plant, there’s growth. Finding God beautiful is really the journey of what it is to be human, to become fully yourself, and fully alive.

Through these blogs, we want to help you make Jesus the object and focus of your affection. We want to help you consistently move toward Christ with every decision you make.

WHAT DO THEY TALK ABOUT?

When it comes to talking about issues in life, society often says, “don’t cross this line.” Heather and Jamie push that line back a bit and talk about the things you’re not supposed to talk about. They’re willing to bring the dark parts of life to light so that even the most secret parts of our lives can be put in motion toward Christ.

We know that there is a great deal of shame and embarrassment around the darkest parts of life, but we also know that shame is one of the biggest roadblocks to getting over it. Heather and Jamie try to normalize tough conversations so you can move forward.

Heather makes everyone around her feel comfortable to be themselves and Jamie cuts straight to the point in conversations. Together, they’ll get you talking about the parts of life you never would have considered talking to your pastors about.

CONNECTING WITH YOU

Heather and Jamie love to bring people together in their everyday lives. So naturally, their podcast is a place where they want to do the same. Every season, we set aside episodes to hear from listeners and talk about your thoughts. Each episode, you’ll hear them mention their voicemail inbox; that’s where they hear from you!

 To share a question or a comment on the show, leave Heather and Jamie a voicemail: 1-539-215-9432. We can’t wait to hear from you.

About In Motion

In Motion is the content platform of Church on the Move in Tulsa, Oklahoma where we explore who Jesus is and how His life changes ours.

You are constantly in motion…

With each day, decision, and moment of life we are moving toward something. We want the thing/idea/person that you are moving toward to be the real Jesus—not an idea of Jesus that you had when you were young or a story that you were told about Jesus, but the real Jesus found in scripture.

We know that using the life and teachings of Jesus to change who you are, the decisions you make, and the way you relate to the rest of the world takes time and practice. So in addition to our weekly church gatherings, we put together In Motion for you to explore the life of Jesus, better understand the role as Christ follower, and ultimately point you toward a life that is in motion toward Jesus.

Who knows your story, your struggle, and your secrets? 

The darkest parts of life always grow in isolation. So each of our blogs and podcasts point you toward a place where you can be honest and authentic about what you’re going through, what you’re thinking about, and how you’re feeling with other Christ-followers.

About Spirit In Motion

Spirit In Motion is a podcast hosted by Whit George and Adam Bush where they talk about their spiritual journeys and attempt to make sense of it all. It’s not often that you get to hear pastors be as honest and open as Whit and Adam are on this podcast.

WHAT DO THEY TALK ABOUT?

Each season we choose a different spiritual theme and share stories and ideas related to that theme. Spirit In Motion focuses on actively deconstructing yourself, the things you’ve learned, and the ideas you have and aligning each of those areas with the life and teaching of Jesus found in scripture. They share stories on how they stopped avoiding the reality of what was going on in their lives and continually bring the dark parts of life to light.

FINDING GOD BEAUTIFUL

“I realized that I found God to be useful, just not beautiful. Little by little, the more I started to think about that—the more I understood that, the more I fell in love with Jesus for real. I wasn’t the same self-centered, prideful, egotistical person that I’d always been. I found myself having more patience with my wife and kids, being more understanding, and being more empathetic.”

“…THE MORE I UNDERSTAND THAT, THE MORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH JESUS FOR REAL.”

“All of the things that I lacked before naturally started to happen for me. Not that there’s no effort in any of it, but I found myself wanting to do new things because I saw in Jesus a more beautiful way than the way I was doing things before. And I thought, ‘well, then I want to be more like that because if that’s who you are, that’s how I want to be… because that’s so much better than what I’ve been doing.’”

—Whit George, Spirit In Motion: Forget the Rules. It’s Really About Relationship.
