"The Gathering at Oral Roberts University," a live television event featuring nationally known Christian speakers, touched the lives of viewers on Direct TV Channel 363 and Tulsa TV Channel 53. Through the week, over 500 prayer calls were taken by ORU students in the prayer center.

The event, which aired Sept. 26-30 at ORU, featured Dr. David Martin, Dr. Mark Rutland, Phil Munsey, Robert Morris and musical guests Eddie James, David and Nicole Binion, Jason Crabb and Ricardo Sanchez. "The Gathering at ORU" was received with rave reviews by viewers. ORU alumni Sharon Daugherty, Rajan Chinnadurai, Dr. Mitch Duininck, Clifton Taulbert and Tim Harris were interviewed on "The Gathering at ORU."

One of the purposes of "The Gathering at ORU" is to share information about the world-changing work going on at Oral Roberts University and through its alumni around the world. Viewers were given the opportunity to contribute to the Quest Whole Person Scholarship program, which helps outstanding students attend ORU. Through this scholarship program, ORU is building spirit-empowered leaders to impact their world.
