“The world is my parish.” John Wesley

Each year we recognize an alum or alumni for outstanding accomplishments in his or her profession, as well as service to the church, community and Oklahoma Wesleyan University. This year, we are extending this honor to John & Marge Connor, not only recognizing their service to the church, community, and University, but also to the world with their efforts with Global Partners Jesus Film ministry.

As a teen, John lived with his parents in Papua New Guinea. He received a B.A. degree in religion from Oklahoma Wesleyan University, a Master of Divinity degree from George Fox Evangelical Seminary, a Master of Theology degree and a Doctor of Missiology degree from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Marge was raised in a pastor’s home. She felt a call to missions following a missions convention at her local church. She earned a B.A. degree in religion from Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

John and Marge have two grown children and four grandchildren.

Join us October 10-11 for Homecoming & Family Weekend to honor these great alums and to celebrate together their service to the kingdom. For the full schedule, information and registration go to
