Revive the Roof

A Campaign for Raley Chapel

Thank you to all who gave to the Revive the Roof campaign!

Our campaign was a success with 383 gifts total. Of that number, 257 were unique donors, 180 were alumni and 60 were brand new donors to OBU!

Your support of OBU is greatly appreciated. We hope you will continue to give and consider becoming a Bison Backer!

Raley Chapel. An iconic symbol of Oklahoma Baptist University.

Sunsets trace its silhouette on Bison Hill. New students march there, beanies on, waiting to launch their OBU journey. Seniors repeat "The Walk" to her steps at Commencement, entering a student and leaving a graduate, ready to engage the world for Christ.

Under her roof, we worship. We learn. We experience all that it means to be a Bison.

Since 1961, Raley Chapel has been the launchpad for students' educational and spiritual journeys while at OBU, and from this iconic building more than 18,000 graduates have been sent out to transform the world for God's glory.

After more than 50 years, the original tiles on the roof of Raley Chapel will be replaced in summer 2016. It's time to "Revive the Roof," to bring our chapel back to its beautiful grandeur, so she may continue on and weather the decades to come.

How Can You Help?

You can be a part of the Revive the Roof Campaign. Your support is crucial. A $20 gift helps purchase one of 42,000 tiles needed to complete the project.

  • $20 = 1 tile
  • $100 = 5 tiles
  • $1,000 = 50 tiles

Raley Chapel proudly stands on Bison Hill, a symbol of OBU's Christ-centered education. Every gift matters and will impact students today and for generations to come.

Donors who give $100 or more will receive a commemorative ornament of Raley Chapel. With a $500 gift, they will receive a framed print of the chapel. Gifts of $1,000 or more will receive a recognition brick, laid in front of the chapel, with the donor's name or an "in honor or memory of" dedication. A replica brick may be purchased for an additional $50.

Please give today and help us "Revive the Roof" on Raley Chapel.
