Oklahoma Christian receives $1.5 million gift

OKLAHOMA CITY — A donor who asked to remain anonymous has contributed $1.5 million to create the “Dr. Lynn and Joy McMillon Endowed Chair for Biblical Studies” at Oklahoma Christian University.
The chair will honor Lynn McMillon, who is stepping down after 14 years as dean of Oklahoma Christian’s College of Biblical Studies, and his wife, Joy.
Lynn McMillon plans to keep teaching as a distinguished Bible professor and remain in his role as CEO and editor of The Christian Chronicle. He serves as an elder at the Memorial Road church.
“We are so proud to be able to establish an endowed chair in the McMillons’ honor,” Oklahoma Christian President Mike O’Neal said. “Lynn and Joy have been such a vital part of this university for almost 45 years and have made tremendous contributions to the success of the university, particularly the College of Biblical Studies.”
Alan Martin will succeed Lynn McMillon as Bible college dean on June 1. Martin, a native of Cape Town, South Africa, has served as an associate professor of family life at Oklahoma Christian since 2006. He and his wife, Linda, attend the Edmond, Okla., church, where he serves as community outreach minister.
