Student Ministry students are prepared to:
- effectively lead and administrate a Christ-centered student ministry.
- design events, retreats, camps, and mission trips.
- guide and shape students to be lifelong disciples.
The Student Ministry major at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri, is one of the best in the country. In fact, over the last ten years, 98.8% of OCC student ministry graduates who pursued a student ministry position were placed in one. Kevin Greer, the director of OCC's student ministry program, has over 30 years of youth ministry experience. You’ll also study under great guest teachers like CIY’s Jayson French and Lane Moss, Lori Murillo, and Dusty Frizzell, and you'll receive over 50 hours of Bible training and 18 hours of specialized student ministry training.

"I believe that youth ministry is one of the most life-impacting careers anyone could ever choose. Our student ministry major exists to train and inspire the next wave of youth ministers to effectively lead a Jesus-centered student ministry, guiding teenagers to become lifelong, world-changing disciples of Jesus."Email Professor Kevin Greer
