A statement by David Cerullo, Chairman and CEO of Inspiration Ministries:
“Oral Roberts was one of the spiritual giants of our time. “He was an innovator in the use of Christian media and higher education. He was a man who fervently believed in the power of God to change lives, and fearlessly proclaimed that message throughout the world. As a graduate of the university he founded, I know what a mentor and inspiration he was to me, and to thousands of other students. He left an example of excellence for all of us to emulate. I am grateful to God for the privilege of knowing him. All of us at Inspiration Ministries extend our prayers and support to his family.”
