What does Love Link do?

Love Link Ministries, Inc. began providing social services to the poor and the homeless in 1991 and provides services to all people without regard to the adjectives or labels often used to describe “others”. Currently, our primary ministries include a food pantry and a thrift store, although we are in the process of launching some new initiatives in the city. Some of our future directions may be in the areas of economic development, job creation, providing affordable housing, job skills training, life skills training, counseling, after school programs, etc. Our vision is wide and deep and long as we seek the transformation of individuals and the transformation of Oklahoma City!

Sarah Green - Program Director

Sarah worked for Love Link through the work study program at Southern Nazarene University in 2009. After college she worked for the YMCA as a Youth Development Professional and then at Positive Tomorrows as an assistant teacher through AmeriCorps. Her desire to use her education in Urban Ministry eventually lead her back to Love Link in December of 2014.


Sarah has been married to Brent since 2007, and they stay happily busy outside of work serving as Youth Pastors at MWC Community Church of the Nazarene.


“Frederick Buechner said ‘The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.’ For me, that place is Love Link.” –Sarah

Success Story

I want to thank Love Link for the thrift shop. It has helped me and my family a lot. I am a grandmother raising my grandchildren. Thank you and may God keep blessing Love Link.
