ORU Chapel at Oral Roberts University

Gather with student and faculty for ORU Chapel at Oral Roberts University. Held every month in Christ’s Chapel on the ORU campus, the service is open to all students and the surrounding communities. The goal is to build unity and foster a worship life within the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Indeed, it empowers students to take the words that God spoke to Dr. Oral Roberts himself, “Go where the light is dim, and my voice is heard small.”

The services are recorded and broadcast live through the university’s television station and also via satellite. Television studios in the Mabee Center direct the television broadcast, called ORU Chapel. However, students man the cameras and sound equipment.

What Are Services Like?

A typical chapel service features contemporary worship, a missions offering, special music, and a sermon. Typically, the president of the university, Dr. William Wilson, preaches, unless there is a special guest. These have included some of the world’s biggest and most well-known pastors, evangelists, and spiritual leaders. Guest speakers through the years have included: Jentezen Franklin, Brian Houston, Marilyn Hickey, Craig Groeschel, Christine Caine, Carolyn Leaf, Ron Luce, Reinhard Bonnke, and many more.

The founder of ORU, Granville Oral Roberts was one of the most famous and influential Christian leaders of the 20th century. Born in 1918, Dr. Roberts grew up to become world renowned as a healing evangelist, author and educator.

In 1955, Dr. Roberts revolutionised evangelism by bringing television cameras into his live healing crusade services and providing a “front-row seat for miracle” for millions of viewers. He helped people everywhere find a better understanding of God’s goodness and His desire to make them whole.
