The ORU President's Circle

An Invitation from ORU's President 

I invite you to join my wife Lisa and me by becoming a member of a special group called the President’s Circle. President’s Circle members are a blessing to ORU because of their prayers, personal support, and friendship; the valuable input they provide to me; and their financial contributions. This is an amazing team and I would love for you to be a part of it. As a President’s Circle member, you will go “behind the scenes” at ORU—Lisa and I will share personal, exclusive updates on the university that illustrate how we are going to the uttermost bounds of the earth. We will also prayerfully connect with you personally, as together we share in the mission and vision of ORU. President’s Circle members invest in ORU with annual giving totaling $10,000 ($192 per week) or more and commit to support the Office of the President in prayer.

These are some of the benefits of joining:

  • Insider information on the greatest university in the world
  • Special seating at on-campus events with other members
  • Invitations to join conference calls with the President
  • Invitations to attend President's Circle Retreats (more on this below!)

We would love for you to join us on this journey. As I said, you will receive invitations to our retreats. The next retreat of 2017 will take place at The Lotte New York Palace in New York City on December 2 and 3. This event is going to be a blast--spiritually impactful and a blessing to all who attend.  More details will be available soon.

To become a President’s Circle member, just go to and make your donation to Oral Roberts University. Recently, we passed the $51 million mark in commitments on our way to the $55 million "stretch" goal of our 50th Anniversary Campaign. The final project will be an apartment-style residence. With your help, we can make this happen! You can call the Development office at 918.495.7220 if you need more information.

My prayer is that you will join Lisa and me as we circle the earth with Spirit-empowered education for the glory of God. Thank you for standing with us!

To the Uttermost Bounds of the Earth,

Dr. William M. Wilson
