Oklahoma Christian University: VISION Magazine


Founded in 1950, Oklahoma Christian is a four-year liberal-arts university affiliated with the Churches of Christ that provides academic programs based on christian value.

Other Churches of Christ based universities include Harding University, Abilene Christian and Pepperdine University.

Designed and published by McKinley Browne Publishing, this 32-page magazine was created for the university alumni. Shortly after its launch, it was said that the magazine inspired a donor to give a 1 million dollar gift to the university for a job well done.

Produced quarterly, this project also included the President’s Annual Report.
