Elaine Rainwater || Program Manager - Missions
A Tulsa transplant but green-chile-loving New Mexican at heart, Elaine graduated from ORU with a Bachelor’s in International Community Development and MBA in Organizational Leadership. In between pursuing her second Master’s in Mental Health Counseling at OSU and tackling home renovation projects, she takes great delight in caring for her garden, cooking with friends and family, and gathering community together. Elaine loves putting her education and experience to work in her passionate pursuit of meeting the practical needs of others in order to open the door to meeting spiritual needs and facilitating wholeness.
Sam Kyle || Program Manager - Outreach
From the great city of Pittsburgh, P.A., Sam now resides in Tulsa, OK after receiving his Bachelor’s in Biblical Literature and MBA from Oral Roberts University. He enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, and being in the “great outdoors.” If you can’t find him outside, you may want to check a local coffee shop or bookstore where he’ll either be reading his next favorite book or spending quality time with his friends and family. Sam is passionate about seeing Kingdom-leaders developed to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world, and is excited to join what God is doing to raise up the next generation of leaders through ORU Missions & Outreach.
