Board of Church & Society
The Board of Church & Society is designing a mediation training event, details to be announced, and partnering with utility companies to help churches become "cool congregations," as described by Mark Davies.
"Sometimes those of us who advocate for social justice are seen as the squeaky wheel," said Chairman Mark Whitley, "but to others [we] are the sound of hope."
Archives & History
The Commission on Archives & History seeks your help to expand its Church History Project, urged Chairman Tom Albin.
Provide a copy of your church’s history, whether print, oral, or video format, to include in the Conference Archives, which are housed in the OCU library.
If you need assistance, contact Conference Archivist Christina Wolf, 405-208-5919, firstname.lastname@example.org.
