Home Building Costs Continue to Soar

As this recent article from Bloomberg indicates, each area of home construction has seen dramatic price increases. The article details the increase in each of the following crucial elements of home construction: foundation, lumber, trusses, drywall, pipes, wiring, paint, finish and appliances. For a non-profit organization like Turning Point Ministries, the staggering price increase of lumber (+200%) alone is painful enough, but coupled with the other significant increases is devastating.

Not only is the cost of building a home rising at an alarming rate, but the purchasing price of homes in general has shot up as well. Turning Point Ministries works to provide a hand-up to homeownership for modest income families. So, we find ourselves in a situation where the number of families in need of help is increasing at the same time that the costs of our mission are soaring. If you are able, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help Turning Point Ministries absorb the costs of this challenging time. Thank you!

Virtual Turkey Trot

It’s time for our 11th Annual Edmond Turkey Trot! Thanks to all of you who have supported us over the past 10 years!! Because of you, we have been able to continue to provide quality, affordable housing for qualified individuals or families in Edmond. Our families come from all walks of life, from teachers to single moms to missionaries – but no matter what they all have one thing in common – they are in need of an opportunity to own an affordable home in Edmond.
We especially need your help now! Due to the economy taking such a hard hit during this time of Covid-19, our applications have steadily increased. We are trying to keep up with the need but any help that you can provide during this season is greatly appreciated. Our thoughts are with all of you during this time; due to the upswing in Covid-19 cases locally, we have decided to CONTINUE with our race this year, but to host it ‘virtually’. This means, you still run or bike the race of your choice, but you will do it on your own on Thanksgiving morning. We will be following along on social media and watching for your posts and sharing them with everyone else!


  • Register by November 20th to receive a t-shirt
  • Run a 5K or Bike a 10K: 
  • Anytime on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26th
  • Anyplace 
  • Submit your finish time on the turkey trot website
  • Dress up – make this fun for the whole family – make signs and cheer each other on!
  • Upload your photos, crop and add filters and tag Edmond Turkey Trot and Turning Point Ministries – Edmond then share on social media!
  • If you’re business in interested in sponsoring the turkey trot, please email Michelle Gregory or Josh Moore.


We’re Hiring!

In order to keep up with the growth of our ministry and increase the number of people we are able to serve in the Edmond community, Turning Point Ministries is hiring a part-time Executive Director. Founded in 2008, Turning Point relied on a volunteer Board of Directors until a few years ago when we hired our first employee, a building superintendent. We are now at a point where the work exceeds what can be accomplished through a volunteer board. Please share with anyone you know that might be interested in the position. Applicants should thoughtfully read the job description and send a resume using the links below.

Heritage Village approved by the Edmond City Council.

As Legacy Station gets closer to being completely built out, the need for another community has grown.  This need will answered by Heritage Village.  This new, much larger community will allow Turning Point to continue to pursue its mission of providing good, low cost housing to those who could not otherwise afford to own their own home, primarily to single parents.  Read about the Council approval by clicking on the link below.
