Ozark Christian College

Located in the city of Joplin, Missouri, OCC has been educating and sending out men and women into the field of ministry. Since 1942, their mission has remained the same: OCC trains men and women for Christian service. Many people want to serve God and make a difference with their lives, but they aren't sure where to start. At Ozark Christian College, students discover the kingdom assignment that God has for them, and there they find help to prepare them.

Biblical and practical training is also provided for those who will serve in the church in non-vocational roles such as elders, deacons, Bible school teachers and youth sponsors.
