TULSA — Oral Roberts University has picked a Tennessee ministry leader as the school's next president.

ORU announced Thursday that William Wilson, who goes by Billy, would serve as the fourth president in the Christian university's history. School officials say Wilson was selected from a pool of more than 170 nominees.

Wilson now serves as executive director of the International Center for Spiritual Renewal in Cleveland, Tenn. He will take over as ORU president on July 1 when outgoing president Mark Rutland steps down.

Wilson served as vice chairman of Oral Roberts' board of trustees before his election as president.
