Dwight is the perfect place to hold conferences, retreats, meetings, reunions, company excursions and more. Nestled in the beautiful hills of eastern Oklahoma, Dwight Mission provides an atmosphere conducive to spiritual growth for people of all ages. Visitors experience the unique opportunity to join the long line of God's witnesses who have gathered for fellowship, study, meditation and worship on this peaceful and secluded site. Dwight Mission is located on 176 acres approximately eleven miles northeast of Vian approximately ten miles northwest of Sallisaw, Oklahoma.
One of the oldest institutions in the Synod of the Sun, Dwight Mission was originally founded in 1820 and was one of the forty mission schools for Indians that the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. had in what is now Oklahoma. Dwight was the last of these schools to be closed (1948) as adequate educational opportunities were provided by the state and the national government. Since 1950, Dwight Mission's role has been to serve as a camp, conference and retreat center. It is currently under the direction of the Agency for Dwight Mission, a volunteer board elected from within the three Presbyteries in Oklahoma.
Seeking to model God's purpose for all humanity, Dwight Mission strives to increase Christ's witness in the world by proclaiming, presenting and participating in God's love by providing a natural sanctuary for God's people where the good news of the Gospel becomes operative in their lives, and by working with Cimarron, Eastern Oklahoma and Indian Nations Presbyteries in this ministry.
