Why the OCC Master of Arts in Biblical Ministry Degree?
High-Quality Education

For almost 80 years, OCC has trained men and women for Christian service through deep biblical study and we believe that ministry principles grounded in Scripture provide profound cultural agility regardless of your kingdom calling.

Personal Transformation

Education, at it’s best, is a process of discipleship, and discipleship, according to Scripture (Galatians 2:20), is the process of transforming you into the hands and feet of Jesus.

Spirit-Centered Community

When you join the Master’s program at OCC, you are partnering with God’s Spirit by connecting with Christ’s community represented by fellow kingdom workers across the world.
