Statement from Sen. Dan Newberry on Passing of Oral Roberts

Sen. Dan Newberry (R-Tulsa) today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Oral Roberts:

“Today the world mourns the passing of a great man, a great leader and a great mentor, who leaves behind an indelible legacy of ministry and service.

His impact stretched beyond the boundaries of our state to every corner of the world. Age never diminished his passion for the gospel. He finished the race with zeal, and in a manner befitting a man of his tremendous character and unwavering faith.

I was privileged to know Dr. Roberts personally and his words of wisdom will be with me forever. He was always ready to give words of encouragement and direction. Dr. Roberts took the time to hear from God and conveyed the message with passion, such as ‘God is a good God’, ‘Something good is going to happen to you’ and ‘Expect a Miracle’, words that are still relevant today. I can never adequately convey my gratitude for the legacy he leaves and he will be greatly missed.”
