Oral Roberts believes God speaks to everyone but most aren’t listening. He says he has heard from God on 40 occasions. Roberts’ stresses obedience being the driving force behind his worldwide ministry and university.

About Dr. Oral Roberts

He was born on January 24, 1918, in Pontotoc County, Oklahoma.  Dr. Roberts was the fifth and youngest child of Rev. Ellis Melvin and Claudius Priscilla Roberts. He grew up to become world-renowned as a healing evangelist, author, educator, and television personality.

His ministry began with God healing him of tuberculosis at the age of 17. Through the Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association and Oral Roberts University, he reached millions of followers worldwide for over 60 years.

Dr. Roberts pioneered televangelism and help lay the foundations for bringing Pentecostalism into the mainstream. He televised the first weekly primetime TV healing service that America had ever known, giving millions at home a front-row seat to see miracles happening right before their eyes.

The Work of Oral Roberts Ministries

In the early days of his ministry, Dr. Roberts had to conduct healing crusades throughout the U.S. in his giant tent cathedral—because there were few auditoriums at the time that could hold the large crowds. Hundreds of miracles happened in every service in the big tent and each week through the ministry’s radio program.

Oral Roberts University (ORU) was officially chartered in 1963. Since that time, ORU has raised up and continues to raise up thousands of students to go into all the world with the light of God’s Gospel.

In 1981, the ministry opened the City of Faith, a medical facility dedicated to merging God’s healing streams of prayer and medicine in one place. For many years, patients were able to come to Tulsa to receive care from Christian doctors and nurses.

Since 1952, the Oral Roberts Ministries has ministered in 56 countries and territories around the world and provided millions of meals through their humanitarian outreach programs.
