So why should you help me? Thousands of people across the US plunge themselves deep into debt to achieve their dreams of graduating from a four-year university. Why am I any different? Like thousands of others,  I am thousands of dollars in debt. I have applied for loans in efforts to acquire even more to continue my dream of walking across the stage and hoisting my degree high, making my family proud. But, this year I've reached my limit. I have applied for grants, scholarships, taken on odd jobs, and even worked several jobs at the same time. All for not. I have exhausted my resources and my ability to earn income. As it stands even with my two jobs I won't even make half of what it will cost to return to ORU this year. I have a 3.47 GPA, a heart to serve, and the ability to make a lasting difference at ORU. Unlike the average student, I am overly involved. I work alongside our Athletic department pioneering a new wave of school spirit and alumni support. I serve as a Resident advisor and will be promoted to Head Resident Advisor if I return in the fall. I have lead missions teams internationally. I have lead weekly outreaches to better serve Tulsa. I have an entire dormitory in community engagement opportunities and championed a new form of dorm unity. I have acted as a director of a college weekend experience team, as well as assisted in the recruitment of several hundred students in my time working with the office of admissions. Outside of ORU I have served several churches in their children's ministries and currently serve as the associate director of a children's ministry in Tulsa. Yet there is more I still need to do. This next year at ORU I strive to make the best yet. However, I can not do it alone! Today I ask for your help! Stay tuned for daily updates, videos, messages, and emails to keep you updated on all of my progress! Thank you for checking in! And thank you for your support and prayers!

All proceeds will go toward my College Education. If I do not reach the goal of 14,000 dollars all the funds raised will go toward completing my education at another University. Thank you!

Update #6

I woke up this morning at the beautiful Eagle Sky Lake in Piedmont MO. Serving at camp Eagle Sky Christian Challenge camp, as I awoke I was reminded of how great God is and all he is capable of. I have an incredible story of the faithfulness of God and how consistent he is through the trial and the change. I have no reason to doubt he will provide a breakthrough even though I can not see it yet. Today is the day the Lord has made and I am choosing to rejoice and be glad in it. I need your help.

Update #1

Hello my name is Jonas Tucker-Alleyne. I am a current Student at Oral Roberts University. I currently need to raise 14,000 Dollars in order to return to school this next fall. Big number right? Kinda intimidating when you think of it. But, I want you to know the why behind supporting me. I am passionate about changing the world. Well so is every other millennial with a laptop and social media. But here is where I am different. I didn’t really choose ORU. ORU chose me. 50 years ago a man by the name of Oral Roberts swept across this great nation and the world changing the very landscape through healing evangelism and God’s word. At the height of his career as a traveling evangelist and minister, God placed a special vision on his heart. To train up students to hear God’s voice. To go where His light is seen dim and His voice is heard small. Where His healing power is not known. Even to the uttermost bounds of the earth. 50 years later ORU still stands. I have the immeasurable honor of calling this university my home. Nearly four years ago now I received a vision from God to be His hands and feet globally. Before attending ORU, I had no idea how. Admittedly, I came to ORU with an entirely different vision than the one that now resonates in my heart. I wanted to influence government from the top down in efforts to introduce incremental change. Now I stand four years later with a vision to change the world one heart, home, town, city, and nation at a time. Introducing people to the saving grace of Jesus Christ, while also consistently pushing businesses, non-profits, and churches toward sustainability in three areas: leadership, development, and growth. I aim to change how we view business, church, community, homelessness, broken families, and ultimately each other over the course of my life. While at ORU my dreams have come alive. My plans have grown and expanded. My knowledge has reached new heights. And my ceiling has never been higher. Over the coming days I will walk you through four different ways ORU has changed me, illuminating yet more reasons why I can’t bring myself to leave. The funds raised in this campaign will go directly toward paying for my tuition and supplemental cost of my education. If in the end, I do not reach the goal, the money will still go toward my education but at another university closer to home. I traveled 1500 miles to follow the Lords call. Leaving all else behind to pursue the plans the Lord has for me. Here at ORU we believe in making no little plans. To go to the uttermost bounds in excellence. Please help me keep both my dream and that of our beloved founder alive. Thank you! And God bless!
