October 28, 2015 (Nashville, TN) – Don Moen, an iconic voice in Christian music and pioneer in the modern praise & worship movement, has been honored with a very special award highlighting his international influence. During the 50th Anniversary Gala last week, Oral Roberts University honored Moen with the Lifetime Global Achievement Award, celebrating Don’s outstanding excellence and vast impact. The award was presented to Moen by ORU President, William M. Wilson.
“Don is one of the most gifted worship ministers of our generation,” said ORU President William M. Wilson. “His ability to bring an audience with him into God’s presence is astounding. Don has journeyed to the ‘uttermost bounds of the earth’ with the music of our King in a variety of ways. His integrity, passion, and character speak volumes. All of this makes Don a very worthy recipient of ORU’s Lifetime Global Achievement Award.”
“It is an incredible honor to receive this award, and I am humbled to be included in the group of distinguished recipients,” said Moen. “ORU has played a significant role in the direction of my life.
