I have a job offer in Tulsa and My fiance and I really feel compelled to start a church in OKC. What are some cities that we could possible live in between the two locations that would make these commutes a little more tolerable?

Bristow is pretty nice.

Another option might be Stillwater. It's not directly in between, but it is a reasonable distance from both and as a college town would probably have more in the way of amenities such as shopping or entertainment.

Going down the Interstate from Tulsa to OKC, you have exits at Sapulpa (practically in Tulsa) Kellyville (really a second Sapulpa exit), Bristow, Stroud, Chandler, Wellston (practically an Edmond suburb) and then Edmond at the end of the turnpike. Edmond and OKC have grown into each other over the years.

Depending on where you need to be in OKC (there's a lot of area in OKc) it may be fairly easy or pretty miserable to commute both ways.

Anywhere along I-44 would mean a toll to get to Tulsa or OKC. I doubt the free alternative, Rt. 66, would be desirable.

Stillwater has free four lane access to OKC. In the case of Tulsa about half the distance there is free four lane. Total four lane access to Tulsa means a toll charge on the Cimarron Turnpike. With a 75 mph speed limit much of the way, it would be a more pleasant commute. Midway on I-44 would mean like a 50 mile drive to both cities. From Stillwater, it would mean around 65 miles.

Stillwater is an easy drive to both. Stroud is halfway inbetween on I-44, but its not a very large town. I guess it just depends on what you consider essential to move to a new location.

If the church is a Christian based denomination, it's too bad the Lord didn't call you to start it in the same area where you live. It's a huge job in the best of circumstances, but living 40 or so miles away seems like a great impediment.
