50th anniversary campaign: help oru finish strong! 

ORU's 50th Anniversary Comprehensive Campaign is nearing an end, and we are so grateful for every alumnus and friend who has helped us reach $50 million in gifts and pledges! Now, it's time to FINISH STRONG!  You can help us reach the $55 million "stretch" goal by making a new or additional gift.

This campaign is literally taking us "to the uttermost bounds of the earth" as we make ORU's unique brand of Holy Spirit-empowered whole person education more accessible to millions around the globe.
