Sue BensonSue Benson

As a longtime member of Clearview Baptist Church in Broken Arrow, Sue Benson is a very active member of her church and has been involved in a number of committees. She is an excellent role model and has a very supportive and beautiful family. Sue continues to be an ambassador for Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children after having served as the development representative in the northeast area of the state for a number of years.

Sue began her work with Baptist Children’s Home, Owasso, as secretary to then administrator, Tandy James. Sue is known for her attention to detail and her gift of hospitality.  When OBHC committed to rebuilding and refurbishing the campus, Sue moved from the role of secretary to development officer. This was a step of faith for Sue and one that she fulfilled in an amazing way. Sue has the skill of listening to you and helping you do what God would have you to do in helping children. Building deep and lasting relationships is a very special gift of Sue Benson.

Sue’s creativity is seen in her idea of a style show. When many thought this sounded like a girly party, we learned that you can have a girly party and still provide a significant amount of resources to provide clothing and other essential finances for our children. Today’s wonderful style show experience at Baptist Children’s Home, Owasso; Baptist Children’s Home, Oklahoma City/Boys Ranch Town; and Baptist Home for Girls, Madill, had its beginning with Sue Benson.

Tony Kennedy states, “It is with great joy that I recommend Sue Benson for the Gladys Smith Society.” Membership in the Gladys Smith Society is the highest award given by OBHC to say “thank you” to people who make an outstanding effort on behalf of at-risk children in Oklahoma through the ministry of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children.
