God brings order out of chaos...
I wasn't ever planning on attending OCC but when my childhood dream of serving in the Marine Corp fell through because of a blown out knee, Jesus sure grabbed my attention. I was told all through high school that I should go into full time Christian Service and I had been running (quite literally) from that calling while training with my Marine recruiters.
After having surgery on my knee from a running accident, I remember my youth pastor telling me about a commitment I made back when I was a freshman during a CIY event; I remembered it, but I had been trying to forget it. I said I was going to go to the Bible college that the CIY main speaker was from. He had just quoted the entire book of Philippians from memory and challenged us in a way I had never been challenged before. I knew I wanted to learn about Jesus and prepare for ministry under people like him.
So it wasn't too long after that day that I applied to Ozark and was accepted within weeks. Everything from the classroom to the dorm room, even student activities has shaped me into a better person. Living and studying at OCC has been the greatest experience of my life, and it could be for you too.
