Ossie Mills, known for his work with Empowered 21, Oral Roberts University and new streaming platform tvChaz, died suddenly Tuesday. He was 58.

"It is with a broken heart that I share the news of the passing of alumnus Ossie Mills, ORU's former vice president of marketing and communications, as well as former executive director and global Council member for Empowered21. Ossie passed away February 5, 2019 as the result of an apparent heart attack," ORU President Billy Wilson says in a statement.

"On a personal level, Ossie was a wonderful friend. Over the last few years, we shared amazing times witnessing what God is doing around the world in the Spirit-empowered movement," Wilson says. "We made history together. I will miss Ossie's friendship deeply. God's Kingdom on earth has been diminished by this loss of giftedness and knowledge. However, I know that our loss is heaven's gain and that Ossie's reward will be great," Wilson says.

Mills' time at ORU began when former president Mark Rutland hired him in 2011.
