Chancellor Oral Roberts passes

To the Oral Roberts University Family:

I wanted to inform you that our dear Chancellor, Oral Roberts passed away this afternoon at the hospital in California.

Chancellor Roberts was one of the brilliant spiritual lights of the 20th century and a giant of the Christian faith. At the core of his legacy is a great university that bears his name. Like millions worldwide, I am mourning his passing and am grateful for his visionary life and contributions.

Please join me in prayer for the Roberts family. We will send details on the memorial service as they are available.

Your servant at ORU,

Mark Rutland, Ph.D.
President
