Will Blanchard


Director of Advancement Operations

With his heart set on serving his OC family, Will wears a lot of hats. Whether you’re a student, parent, alum, or donor, he’s waiting to hear from you. Give him a call to make a gift, get better connected, or to make a friend (and have a coffee while you’re at it!).

Aimee Furrie


Annual Giving Coodinator

As the woman behind the general scholarship fund, Homeward, and the Backyard Club, you’ve probably heard from Aimee. She’s the gal to call if you have questions about investing in OC--or if you just want to discuss Gilmore Girls over an exceptionally large cup of coffee.

Christine Merideth


Assistant to the Vice President for Advancement

Not only is Christine Kent’s right-hand woman, she is also one of our gift processors and plays a huge role in our OC Associates program. If you’d like to set a meeting with Kent, become an Associate, or have a question about giving to the University, Christine will be glad to assist you.

Alan Phillips


Vice President for Texas Operations

Although Alan’s office is now in Oklahoma (and we’re so glad he’s here!), part of his heart remains just south of the Red River. Whether you’re a prospective student, friend, or donor from the great state of Texas, Alan is ready for your call.

Bob Lashley


Executive Director of Alumni Relations

From directing Homecoming to creating our Senior Sendoff program, Bob reaches alumni of all generations. If you’re an OC alum, you’ve likely heard from Bob through Eagle Excerpts or an on-campus event. For any questions about alumni involvement, Bob can point you in the right direction.

Chris Adair


Director of Alumni Communications & Research

Chris loves learning about OC alumni and helping them connect or reconnect in ways that meet their needs personally, socially, and spiritually. He uses social media extensively to share information with OC alumni as well as gather information to best serve OC, our alumni, and our current students, faculty, and staff.

Gary Mason


Major Gifts Officer

If you’re looking to make a major gift toward the future of OC, Gary would love to connect with you. Or, if you’d like to turn the conversation toward God, golf, or motorcycles, well…Gary’s still your guy.

Jamie Haworth


Advancement Records Coordinator

As our data guru, Jamie helps us keep in touch with you! If you’d like to update your contact information or have a question about your OC gift, Jamie is ready to help.

Kim Reiter


Coordinator of Alumni Relations

When it comes to keeping OC alumni in the loop, Kim is a pro. If you are an OC alum and have a question (about anything!), she is ready waiting for your call.

Sharon Lindsey


Adminstrative Assistant for Advancement

If you’re not sure who to call, give Sharon a ring. Not only will she help you connect with the right person, she’s sure to be one of the nicest people you talk with all day.

Tonda Stafford


Advancement Data Processor

As one of our main pillars of Oklahoma Christian gift processing, Tonda is an expert when it comes to investing in OC. If you have any questions about your gift, Tonda is at your service.
