Oakland City University has received grant money for a new construction
The Welborn Baptist Foundation recently awarded its $2.96 million Christ-Centered Living funds to 32 not-for-profit organizations.
Out of these 32 organizations, Oakland City University received $50,000.
OCU must match the money from the Welborn grant in a two-for-one approach, meaning OCU will raise one dollar for every two dollars awarded by Welborn.
Oakland City University will use the funds to create Bible study-themed areas and other amenities in their new 150-bed residence hall currently under construction on the OCU campus.
The residence hall will open in August for the 2023 Fall semester.
