Hello cjwhitehurst and welcome to the community!

 

If it's the hollow part of the door then your only option is to use a larger thread screw, If the metal is solid all the way in then you can machine tap the hole with the next size larger and use a new screw. 

 

Some self tapping screws will drill out their own hole size so there is no need to use an actual drill bit. Take pictures of the hole and bring into the store the screw that was in there and the hardware associate will help you find a new one.
