Dr. Oral Roberts
January 24, 1918 - December 15, 2009
We are so thankful for the commitment to spread the Gospel message of salvation and healing that our dear friend, Dr. Oral Roberts, made to God. A sawdust pioneer who brought his tent revivals into the 20th century by means of radio and television, he became a spiritual father to millions around the world and blazed the trail for all of us who are now in Christian television.
Jan and I will always be grateful for Dr. Roberts’ support for TBN, and will forever treasure his messages of inspiration as he encouraged us to expand the vision and outreach of TBN to cover the whole wide world.
While we will miss his wonderful smile, wise and encouraging words and precious prayers, we rejoice to know he is now in the presence of Jesus enjoying the rich rewards of a life spent in faithful service to our Savior.
