Oral Roberts Dies at 91

From Charisma News Service.

Veteran evangelist Oral Robert died Tuesday in Newport Beach, Calif., due to complications from pneumonia. His son, Richard, and daughter, Roberta, were at his side. The founder of Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association and Oral Roberts University was 91.

There will be a private family internment. Arrangements for a public memorial service in Tulsa are pending and will be announced soon.

Some of his teachings were controversial, to say the least. But Roberts was undeniably a giant figure in the world of Christendom.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Roberts family at this difficult time.
