Dilbeck to Speak on Relationships during Focus Week

Dr. Hance Dilbeck, pastor of Quail Springs Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, will lead two chapel services during OBU’s annual “Focus Week,” Feb. 15 and Feb. 17.

Focus Week is dedicated to helping members of the OBU community strengthen relationships. Based on this year’s theme, “Discovering the Heart of Man’s Nature,” Dilbeck will speak not only about incarnational relationships, but also about how technology affects such relationships.
