About Our College

The college's stated purpose is to "train men and women for Christian service" through an undergraduate Bible college education. Coursework focuses almost exclusively on the Bible, ministry training, and related topics. OCC's learning goal is to educate and equip students to become like Christ and serve Christ in leadership ministry. Graduates will be biblically grounded, spiritually matured, culturally engaged, and vocationally prepared. Ozark's training in intercultural studies, worship and creative arts, student and children's ministry, biblical communication, and more equip students with the biblical knowledge, cultural awareness, and vocational skills needed for effective Christian service. A dual degree program with Missouri Southern State University lets students earn two bachelor's degrees — one from each college — to serve in a variety of fields. OCC also offers an entire degree online.
