Campus Renewal Update from Dr. Heath A. Thomas

On the night of April 19, 2023, an EF-2 tornado struck the campus of OBU, causing significant damage to buildings, trees and property. Yet through God’s gracious protection, there were no injuries to human life. In the video below, Dr. Heath Thomas, OBU president, shares an update about the progress made since that time along with upcoming plans to renew OBU in the months ahead.

Help Us Renew the OBU Campus

We are humbled and grateful for the outpouring of support and assistance we received in the days and weeks after April 19. Even after this support plus insurance payouts, we continue to have significant financial needs to make it possible for us to renew the OBU campus. 

Your support can help shape the future of our campus and the future of our students. Together, we can use this opportunity to flex forward and create an even stronger and vibrant experience for all on Bison Hill. 

Please consider making a gift to OBU. Be a future shaper and help equip the next generation of future shapers to live all of life, all for Jesus.
