Donation to help Oklahoma Christian train more preachers

OKLAHOMA CITY — Benton and Paula Baugh have pledged $1.7 million to establish an endowed chair in the College of Biblical Studies at Oklahoma Christian University.
President John deSteiguer announced the Benton and Paula Baugh Chair of Gospel Preaching during a recent chapel assembly and at an on-campus luncheon for preachers.
“We need to prepare more preachers who can help bring people to Christ, and Benton and Paula are making that possible,” deSteiguer said. “They have a passion for evangelism, ministry and preaching. We’re grateful for this generous gift that will bless Oklahoma Christian and our students.”
The Baughs attend the Memorial Church of Christ in Houston, where Benton serves as a deacon and Oklahoma Christian alumnus and trustee David Duncan is the pulpit minister.
Benton Baugh has more than 50 years of experience in oilfield and subsea systems and has received more than 100 U.S. patents. He founded Radoil Inc. and served as its president until recently selling the company.
His Christian service includes helping develop the Spring Branch Iglesia de Cristo (Spanish for “Church of Christ”) and serving as co-chairman for the 2012 Day of Good Works, an initiative of Houston-area Churches of Christ.
Paula Baugh is active with the Impact Houston Church of Christ, serving hungry, hurting and homeless people through that inner-city congregation.
