The Science Museum of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City will be the site for an Oklahoma Baptist University Adult Conference on Thursday, May 1. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the event concludes at 5 p.m.
Sponsored by the OBU Legacy Society, the conference will include Science Museum activities and special presentations from OBU personalities.
"We want our alumni and friends to enjoy a unique event in a very interesting setting," said John Little, OBU's director of estate and gift planning. "The Science Museum offers outstanding resources, and we've been able to incorporate additional activities to offer a great time of learning, Bible study and fellowship."
The day will include a presentation from Col. William Pogue, a NASA astronaut and 1951 OBU graduate. Dr. Brad Jett, OBU's Hurley associate professor of biology, will speak on "OBU and the Sciences."
Dr. Hance Dilbeck, pastor of Oklahoma City's Quail Springs Baptist Church, will open the conference with a Bible study. OBU interim president John W. Parrish also will speak.
Conference attendees can tour the aero-space exhibits, see a celestial presentation by Wayne Harris-Wyrick, the Science Museum's planetarium director, and enjoy an IMAX Theater production featuring the Grand Canyon.
Cost of the conference is $20 per person. Lunch is included. To make reservations, call the OBU development office at 405.878.2703.
