What a pleasure it is to greet you and welcome you to CPO! It is hard to believe that CPO is now in its 31st year! Never, in my wildest dreams for this ministry, did I envision that it would become this large or this comprehensive.
We are still an ALL VOLUNTEER ministry. We do what we do because we love the girls and women as well as their little ones!
Our mission is to help the young women do what they feel is best for their babies and to help them become all that God created them to be. My personal goal is to get up each morning and make myself available for His calling that day. Truly, His mercies are new every morning for each one of us!
Cheryl Bauman is the Founder and has been the Executive Director of Crisis Pregnancy Outreach since its inception in 1983. For 31 years, Cheryl has guided and directed CPO as it has continually grown to meet the ever-increasing needs of young women and their children.
Cheryl has received numerous awards and recognition for her loving and compassionate service. Mrs. Bauman was presented with the Pinnacle Award by Tulsa’s Mayor Bill LaFortune. This award is given “for significant contribution toward improving the status of women in the Tulsa community.”
In 2002, Cheryl went to Washington D.C. to receive The Congressional Angels in Adoption Award, “in recognition of her outstanding example and commitment in promoting adoption.”
While Cheryl Bauman is an accomplished woman, dedicated to serving her community, she would quickly tell you her biggest achievements are her seven children, 22 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchild and her marriage of 50 years to Jerry.
Jerry and Cheryl have been faithful members of Christian Chapel since 1981. They enjoy spending time with their large family, traveling together, and the beloved cats and Whippet dogs.
