The Tony Kennedy Data Center was dedicated with prayer and a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, May 16, 2014. The Kennedy Building will house the OBHC data team, support services and development offices. It allows OBHC to move from rented space where the data team was located.

Members of the board, friends, family and staff toured the building located at 7290 Cherokee Plaza.

Speakers included Jack Kimbler, advisor to the Board of Trustees; Tandy James, executive vice president of OBHC; and Ron Fannin, senior associate executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. Tony Kennedy’s pastor, Blake Gideon of First Baptist Church, Edmond, voiced the prayer of dedication.
